Cognitive Pilot and Bryanskselmash, one of Russia's top agricultural equipment manufacturers, have agreed to serially equip PALESSE GS12 combines with Cognitive Agro Pilot AI-based system for autonomous driving.
Cognitive Agro Pilot’s system not only allows a combine to steer itself but also to understand and react to its surroundings. Instead of relying on a satellite signal, the system uses a camera to read the terrain ahead and its AI programming decides how to respond to what it sees. The system should be available in Canada this year.
Cognitive Pilot announces the opening of 13 regional offices across Russia over the past 3 months.
Cognitive Agro Pilot is using computer vision and machine learning for precision guidance. The system detects obstacles, including people, animals, metallic objects and stones along its way, without GPS navigation and RTK positioning. Cognitive Agro Pilot can operate in territories with a weak satellite signal.
From June to October 2020, over 350 New Holland, John Deere and Claas autonomous combines equipped with the Cognitive Agro Pilot system farmed over 160,000 hectares of field and harvested more than 720,000 tons of crops.
Cognitive Pilot, a global technology company supporting the transportation and agriculture sectors with innovative software, hardware, and artificial intelligence (AI) backed systems, has been awarded ‘Overall Harvesting Innovation of the Year’ at the AgTech Breakthrough Awards.

Agricultural enterprises to improve productivity with AI solution delivered by Cognitive Pilot and Sberbank-Telecom
According to a Global Market Insights, Inc. report., the precision farming market is poised to rise from today’s USD4 bln to USD12 bln by 2025. Precision farming in Russia is in its infancy and is expected to boom in the next three to four years to be worth some RUB15–20 bln, analysts say.
Digital Agro, Agrosignal & Cognitive Pilot Create Agricultural Ecosystem for Digitalization of Farming
Digital Agro (a subsidiary of Uralchem), Agrosignal and Cognitive Pilot (an autonomous driving technology joint venture of Sberbank and Cognitive Technologies Group) have formed a strategic partnership to collaborate on a single agricultural ecosystem to accelerate the digitalization of Russian farming.
For agricultural robotics to be more widely adopted, farmers will need services to help maintain and repair intelligent systems. EkoNiva Holding Co. and Cognitive Pilot have signed a three-year agreement to outfit farm machinery with the C-Pilot autonomous driving system and create a service network across Russia.
