Valtra, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), is introducing a unique SmartGlass windscreen with a transparent display for agricultural tractors. The robust and bright display technology, laminated inside the front glass provides an excellent solution to improve the user experience while operating the tractor even in the most demanding operating conditions.
“Tractor driver needs to pay attention to many things while operating the tractor. He/she needs to observe surroundings, watch and control tractor implement, follow work result and be aware of machine status. Valtra SmartGlass with transparent display gives the most important information in optimal location to improve safety and ergonomics of tractor operation”, says Brandon Montgomery, Platform Director, Product Management, Valtra.
Display can be used to show various different information depending on work task under progress, like machine or engine speed, temperature of engine/hydraulics, position information of front loader, implement height position, fuel/def level, several other machine data and information on ringing mobile phone.
In the future the display will support with some more advanced features specially to improve safety of tractor operations, but also working efficiency and precision:

- Alert persons nearby tractor on farm yard
- Alert nearby obstacles during low visibility conditions
