SeedMaster has rolled out a new tablet-based platform to help growers with seeding operations this spring.
The Axis mobile monitoring system features up to eight wireless, magnetic-mount cameras for monitoring what’s happening during planting or on the road between fields.
“The quality of our cameras is very sharp. It’s a 720P camera,” explains Tim Ottenbreit, product development specialist with SeedMaster, in this video filmed at the Crop Production Show in Saskatoon last month.
In the cab, the operator can simultaneously monitor each HD camera on an eight-inch Windows-based tablet that comes loaded with rate calculators, calibration tools, maps, remote support and other apps.
As Ottenbreit explains, the company is also in the process of testing a SmartFill feature for the Axis platform, which will automate filling of SeedMaster’s Nova cart, controlling the conveyor and truck gates to fill each tank to a programmed weight.
