The world’s first 5G driverless tractor, invented in Luoyang in June, 2020, has the potential to significantly change the world’s agricultural industry.

Its innovation includes the introduction of self-driving mode, 5G technology, and new energy (lithium battery). One of the big innovations lies in its in-wheel motor technology, which allows each wheel to independently adjust its direction, creating a shorter turning radius than traditional tractors, making it more flexible to control.

5G1The tractor is mainly used to tow agricultural equipment for farm work.

Luoyang is a city with a profound historical heritage and rich industrial foundation, which can provide good working opportunities for young people and entrepreneurs.
