The Russian government wants to create a testing laboratory based on the manufacturer of the presidential limousine Aurus, which will create an unmanned tractor. They plan to start work in 2020.
Cabinet of Ministers, as they say RIA News, has already published the relevant decree. Next year, at NAMI’s facilities, they should organize a testing laboratory with a testing ground. It should appear by December 30, 2020.
In addition, the authorities will approve an additional provision where the requirements for unmanned tractors that they will need to fulfill in order to be allowed to operate for the testing period will be fixed.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Agriculture will be faced with the task of identifying sources of financing in order to equip the US base with the necessary equipment.
This is not the first unmanned tractor that was created on the territory of Russia. In mid-July at the International Industrial Exhibition in Yekaterinburg presented an autonomous tractor without any controls and even without a cab. The development was carried out by a company that is part of the state corporation Roscosmos.
