Google and car companies across the world are spending millions developing self-drive vehicles.

However, one inventor, Michael Shannon has already done it with a Massey Ferguson MF250. If a field is digitally mapped, you can let this tractor off by itself and it’ll spread fertiliser, roll fields, etc. using GPS co-ordinates.

It can also be controlled by remote control and driven manually.

    The Provos had a remote controlled Tractor in the late 80’s or early 90’s

    If I recall correctly it crashed before reaching its intended target.
