Monarch Tractor is expanding its R&D operations in Singapore to include artificial intelligence. The company says the move signals a major growth and appetite for the company's A.I., robotics and smart farming technology within the Asia Pacific region (APAC).
The process will mean partnering with government agencies and academic institutions to grow their A.I. research & development team.
Through its partnership with the Singapore government, Praveen Penmetsa, co-founder & CEO of Monarch Tractor, says the company can provide more job opportunities and "propel our mission for a greener future. More than ever, farmers, government bodies and consumers are looking for more viable options to sustain our planet."
Building upon Singapore's early success in developing the MK-V's driverless capabilities, Monarch's expansion and development of new talent will work to create automation capabilities that extend to entire farm operations leading to the enablement of profitable and sustainable agricultural practices within the region and globally.
As almost 25% of global GHG emissions result from agriculture, this strategic expansion will champion and enable large-scale emissions reductions that support Singapore's Green Plan 2030, including the country's aspiration to become net zero by 2050.
Monarch is currently hiring talent throughout Singapore to support and develop cutting-edge A.I. robotics technology - creating a smarter, greener and safer farming industry.
