Valtra Smart Touch is an armrest and user interface which holds the controls for all of the functions of a modern tractor. Today, tractors have more functions than cars and they have become overwhelmingly complex to use – with most tractors you have to read the manual to even get the tractor to move. The main idea behind the Valtra Smart Touch is simplicity – everything should be intuitive, without reading any manual. The physical armrest has an ergonomically designed horizontal drive lever, with everything located close to your hand. The digital UI is based on skeuomorphism, but has been greatly simplified.
