November 11, 2019, Hannover, Germany - As one of the first LUMINEQ transparent display customers, the tractor solution pioneer Valtra showcased the final design of their heads up display (HUD) SmartGlass at the 2019 Agritechnica.
Valtra SmartGlass for safer tractors
Valtra SmartGlass is based on LUMINEQ in-glass display technology, which is a thin layer transparent display laminated between two glass surfaces. By displaying critical information in the line of sight, SmartGlass HUD greatly improves safety and ergonomics of the operator. While focusing on the frontloader work, the operator can see various information such as the loader height, load weight, driving speed, and engine rpm, without needing to look away from the work at hand.
The SmartGlass can also display information to people outside the tractor. For instance the fuel level can be showed to the operator when he is outside the tractor filling the fuel.
This concept was first introduced at 2017 Agritechnica and received lots of positive customer feedback. After two years' intensive testing and improvements, Valtra SmarGlass is now made available as an option via the Unlimited studio. It was announced that after Agritechnica, Valtra will release 20 pilot units to selected customers and that serial production is planned for later in 2020.
