ACEINNA Earns Recognition for Participation in John Deere Cost Reduction Opportunities Process

ACEINNA IMU Sensors Help Guide John Deere Tractors for Agricultural Applications

ACEINNA has earned recognition for 2017 in the John Deere Cost Reduction Opportunities Process (JD CROP). JD CROP, a supplier suggestion process, is part of Deere & Companys Achieving Excellence program. The Andover, MA -based company received the honor for providing cost-reduction ideas of outstanding quality, and for demonstrating commitment to continuous improvement. ACEINNA company employees accepted the recognition during formal ceremonies held on April 18 in Moline, IA.


ACEINNA is a supplier of IMU sensor guidance and navigation solutions to John Deeres operation in Fargo, North Dakota.

"Automated, self-driving tractors and machinery make farmers lives much easier, greatly improving their overall productivity and farming efficiency," says Mike Horton, CTO of ACEINNA. "According to industry research, over 50% of farms are already using auto steering technologies and that number is predicted to rise to 64 per cent this year. The precision farming market is exploding - and is predicted to reach over $8 billion in market value by 2022."

Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.

The 13 MP autofocus camera uEye XC is especially easy to operate and delivers high-resolution images and videos in the blink of an eye. Unlike typical webcams, it has been specifically designed for use in industrial applications and delivers sharp image data even in changing light conditions. Setting up and operating only requires a cable connection. The webcam-like camera is characterised by its particularly elegant and lightweight magnesium housing: with dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm, it is compact, sturdy despite its light weight and absolutely suitable for industrial use - benefiting, for example, kiosk systems, applications in industrial production or agriculture. With the uEye XC Starter Set, IDS offers a full-package deal for $500. (launch promotion, valid until 30 November 2022) that allows customers to evaluate and use the full range of functions of the new camera. The set includes not only the camera, tripod adapter and cable, but also a macro lens. Thanks to this lens, the camera is also suitable for demanding applications at close range. It easily shortens the minimum possible object distance and opens up additional application possibilities.
