TRAKTHOR COMPARTMENTALISED TRACTOR
This prototype is designed to be scalable and to take on terrain that would prove a challenge for today’s tractor.
Trakthor comes in the form of small units that can be joined together to create a scaled tractor that could serve alternative- or larger-volume functions. The power required or nature of the task at hand would dictate how many of the single- wheeled tractor units need to be put together to create a larger device. Double vehicles would also be capable of achieving paralleli-sation for larger tasks. The design also has scope for multiple attachments, just like a conventional tractor. “Robotic equipment like the Trakthor could really change the way farmers and land owners fulfil their duties while allowing easier access to all parts of their property. Attachable tools could be sold separately to let users customise functionalities and adapt the Trakthor to particular tasks,” says its description on Imaginactive.
