Korea’s agricultural machine No. 1 Daedong,
emerging as the smart agricultural machine
leader with ICT technology.

Innovatoin for the future, Expansion for a better society

2019 Commercialized the first straight-line autonomous driving rice transplanter in Korea.
2021 Released the straight-line autonomous driving tractor and the remote agricultural machine management "Daedong Connect."
Daedong is creating a bright future for our agriculture and rural areas that are suffering from a labor shortage, aging, and low economic feasibility by distributing smart agricultural machines based on cutting-edge ICT technology.

Autonomous Vehicle Technology

The core of smart agricultural machinery is autonomous driving technology where the agricultural machine performs precise work according to the situation and the purpose of the work without an operating driver. Based on cutting-edge ICT technology, such as big data and AI, Daedong is developing and commercializing smart agricultural machines like tractors, rice transplanters, and combine harvesters, with the goal of autonomous driving stage 4 ‘completely unmanned autonomous driving’, where the machine can complete the entire task without human operation.

  • Level 0

    Remote control

    Check the location of the agricultural machine remotely, turn it on and off, and check the status, work details, etc. of the machine using telematics technology.

  • Level 1

    Automatic steering

    Automatically steers for the vehicle to drive along the specified route without the driver having to move the steering wheel.

  • Level 2

    Autonomous driving

    Not only steers automatically but also adjusts the speed (automatic gear shifting) as needed according to the situation and drives on its own.

  • Level 3

    Autonomous work performance

    Whilst the driving itself is important, the autonomous driving of agricultural machines also requires work to be performed autonomously. The agricultural machine performs work without the operator operating the machine.

  • Level 4

    Unmanned autonomous work performance (AI)

    The agricultural machine with artificial intelligence performs work from start to finish without any human operation. It recognizes various environments, such as crops and obstacles, and performs work according to the path set by AI.

Whilst a human operator can only operate one agricultural machine at a time, multiple autonomous driving agricultural machines can perform simultaneously, completing several times the work in the same time.

Daedong Connect:
SMART tractor management at the tip of your fingers

Daedong released a futuristic service, "Daedong Connect." It uses telematics and other cutting-edge ICT technologies for remote control and management of tractors using a smartphone.
Through Daedong Connect, people can now turn on the ignition remotely and conveniently manage their vehicles by looking at the vehicle location, status, breakdown, parts status, and others. Furthermore, people can improve their work efficiency by looking at the automatically recorded work history. Daedong Connect also prevents vehicle theft using its Safe zone feature.
With the autonomous driving technology of Daedong, Daedong Connect will become the future platform where a completely autonomous operation is witnessed.
