Non-Profit Organization AEF Awarded by ASABE for Technology Innovation

The Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF), a global non-profit organization founded to improve cross-manufacturer compatibility in agricultural equipment, was recognized by the ASABE with a prestigious AE50 award for its Agricultural Interoperability Network (AgIN).

The AE50 is an awards program that recognizes the top product advancements in agriculture, food, and biological systems for the year. The winners are chosen by a panel of expert engineers who use criteria that emphasize innovation, engineering advancement, and market impact as the deciding factors. The ASABE recognized the winners during a luncheon held at the Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

“We are honoured to be recognized with an esteemed AE50 award for AgIN.

Accessing information across different clouds today is a challenge. With AgIN, farmers can get access to data via the cloud of their choice from other systems.”

says Norbert Schlingmann, General Manager, AEF.

The AgIN network is a new peer-to-peer solution for agribusinesses to share data across the industry. It aims to foster collaboration between agricultural actors who have agreed to make their cloud platforms interoperable. AgIN will establish a state-of-the-art data space for agricultural data, providing a foundation for this purpose.

AEF member companies committed to the AgIN initiative include: Actia Italia, AEM, AGCO, AgGateway, Argo Tractors, Amazone, Bosch Rexroth, CLAAS, CNHi, dev4Agriculture, Dinamica Generale, DKE-Data, Horsch, John Deere, Krone, Kubota/Kverneland, Kuhn, SDF, NEXT Farming, OSB connective, Pöttinger, Rauch, Trimble, VDMA Agricultural Machinery, Walvoil, and farm.
