Examples from three decades of special development in agriculture


Terminal development

For more than 20 years, LACOS has been developing software solutions in precision farming for different terminals and platforms. To date, we have already carried out more than 50,000 installations worldwide. It is important that we respond to the individual wishes of our customers and implement them. Our long-standing product LC:NAVGUIDE-section control has developed into a true success story, trusted by a wide variety of international manufacturers of agricultural machinery and terminal partners.

  • LC:NAVGUIDE-parallel tracking – precision driving in parallel tracks
  • LC:NAVGUIDE-section control – GPS-controlled switch-on and switch-off of part width sections + individual nozzles
  • LC:NAVGUIDE-auto steering – automatic steering over agricultural land

Mobile development

An essential branch of development began at LACOS with our first application for land surveying for farmers on 'palms'. Today, we develop specific solutions for a wide variety of hardware, whether smartphone or tablet and regardless of the operating system. These are used in animal breeding, in applications for setting fertiliser spreaders as well as in navigation and logistics. The LACOS-developed FIELDNAV was therefore the first agricultural navigation system.

  • LC:AREA-enterprise – agricultural land surveying
  • LC:BOS class – data acquisition in animal production
  • Spreadsheet app – determination of data for output of operating resources

Web applications

Web applications are becoming increasingly important for data preparation, analysis and evaluation in combination with the use of mobile apps. We offer developments in various stages of expansion for proprietary LACOS products as well as for OEM customers. Current areas of expertise are navigation, logistics and telemetry.

  • LC:FLEETNAV-web – portal for managing telemetry information
  • WebControl – addition to the overview of logistics fleets

Desktop applications

LACOS develops desktop applications for many sectors for use in precision farming, logistics and navigation.

  • LC:FLEETNAV-office – software for machinery management
  • LC:FIELDNAV-desktop – software for the LC:FIELDNAV-pro agricultural navigation system
  • LC:NAVGUIDE-trackguide – software for the management of field boundaries + application maps
