Supplier News

Leica Geosystems  has entered into a research and development (R&D) agreement with YTO, a leading Chinese manufacturer of agricultural and construction machinery.

As part of the new agreement, Leica Geosystems and YTO plan to develop integrated precision auto-steering solutions for new model YTO tractors, for use in Chinese and export markets.

In conjunction with the signing of the new agreement, Leica Geosystems has released Chinese language support for the user interface of the Leica mojo3D guidance display to meet local market demand.

Glenn Clark, Business Manager Asia Pacific of Leica Geosystems Agriculture says that the company is "pleased to enter into this R&D agreement with YTO, as they are the leading agricultural machinery manufacturer in China and operate in markets around the world."

"As the use of precision guidance technology continues to expand in China, we believe that this partnership will give both parties an advantage in this dynamic market," he adds.

Leading engineers at YTO explain that “as GPS aided guiding and steering systems are recognised in China, YTO has closely followed the market demand to take action. It is very important to embed state-of-art technology of industry leaders such as Leica Geosystems to improve our product competency and performance.”
