Raven Industries, Inc. introduced new advances in precision agriculture technology including the new Viper 4 field computer as well as other ag technology during the 11th annual Raven Innovation Summit held June 4-5. Viper 4 will improve how customers manage critical machine functions, but more importantly, enhance the way data collected in the field is managed and utilized.
The Viper 4 field computer features a 12.1-inch responsive touchscreen and sleek design with a rugged magnesium casing. A customizable user interface utilizing new Raven Operating Software allows users to set up machine profiles, user profiles and grower-farm-field information, expediting job start-up and streamlining information management functionality.
"Data management is critical to our customers' success. Viper 4 hardware, software and third-party applications will operate separate from each other, providing an open platform for data management with our Slingshot API platform and agX compatibility," said Matt Burkhart, vice president and general manager for Raven's Applied Technology Division.
