Ill., Jan. 5, 2023 /CNW/ -- During John Deere's
CES 2023 keynote address, the company revealed two new
technologies, ExactShot™ and an electric excavator, that will help
Deere's customers be more productive, profitable, and
"Everything we do at John Deere is focused on real purpose and
real impact," said Jahmy Hindman, CTO at John Deere. "This means
we're developing technology that enables our customers to provide
the food, fuel, fiber and infrastructure that our growing global
ExactShot allows farmers to reduce the amount of starter
fertilizer needed during planting by more than 60%. The technology
uses sensors and robotics to place starter fertilizer precisely
onto seeds as they are planted in the soil, rather than applying a
continuous flow of fertilizer to the entire row of seeds.
The electric excavator, powered by a Kreisel battery, will
provide construction workers and road builders with lower daily
operating costs, reduced jobsite noise, enhanced machine
reliability, and zero emissions, without sacrificing the power and
performance they need in a machine.
- ExactShot will help farmers be economically and environmentally
sustainable as they work tirelessly to grow the food, fuel and
fiber that we all rely on. With the global population expected to
grow from 8 billion to nearly 10 billion by 2050, farmers need to
increase production by 60% to 70% on today's arable land.
- ExactShot uses a sensor to register when each individual seed
is in the process of going into the soil. As this occurs, a robot
will spray only the amount of fertilizer needed, about 0.2 ML,
directly onto the seed at the exact moment as it goes into the
- Across the U.S. corn crop, ExactShot could save over 93 million
gallons of starter fertilizer annually and prevent wasted
fertilizer from encouraging weed growth or increasing the risk of
running off the field into a waterway.
- Deere's new electric excavator, powered by a Kreisel battery,
will improve reliability, performance and safety in construction.
Its use on construction sites will result in fewer moving parts,
less noise pollution, and fewer emissions.
- Deere acquired a majority stake in Kreisel Electric, which
created state-of-the-art battery technology for a wide range of
mobile and stationary applications. Kreisel's patented immersion
cooling architecture provides unsurpassed lifetime, enhanced
safety, and improved performance for battery-powered
- Kreisel's charging technology results in faster and lower-cost
connections to the electrical grid.
- ExactShot and the electric excavator are on display at John
Deere's CES 2023 booth (#5617) from January
5-8, 2023, located in West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The booth also
features Deere's See & Spray and autonomous technology.
