For the Field

Fleet Position Tracking

Connected Farm enables visibility into real-time fleet positions so managers can make intelligent decisions to optimize operator performance. Knowing the location of each vehicle can improve fuel usage, reduce application mistakes, and prevent theft.

Asset Position History

Connected Farm saves a historical breadcrumb trail for each vehicle to verify previously reported locations. Quickly find out where each vehicle traveled by entering a date range.

Geo-fence and Curfew Alerts

Connected Farm enhances farm security by creating virtual geo-fences and curfew alerts to help notify managers of theft or unauthorized use of vehicles. If a vehicle travels outside of pre-defined working hours or areas, a message is instantly sent to the manager’s cell phone.

Cab Dashboard and Reporting of Public CAN Messages

Connected Farm utilizes a virtual dashboard of cab monitors to view fuel usage, battery voltage, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and more. Dashboard information can be transformed into performance analysis reports that can be used to enhance productivity, efficiency, and swift decision making.

Fleet Productivity

Connected Farm captures productivity information which includes time spent idling, moving, and traveling. When used with the FmX® display, operators will be prompted to enter delay reasons when motionless for a set period of time. Productivity and delay reasons can then be viewed online so that better decisions can be made about fleet management.

Remote Assistant

Connected Farm reduces employee downtime by remotely accessing the FmX® integrated display in real-time to diagnose a problem. The operator never leaves the cab which leads to time savings and greater efficiency.

Vehicle to Vehicle Data Exchange

Connected Farm eliminates the need for USB storage devices by transferring guidance lines, coverage maps, tank levels, and yield data between multiple vehicles using wireless technology. Operators in the same field are able to share information to minimize overlap and crop inputs, while reducing their carbon footprint.

Office to Field Data Exchange

Connected Farm eliminates the need for USB storage devices by transferring guidance lines, drainage designs, as-applied variety maps, yield data, and variable rate prescription maps between the office and field using wireless technology. Using Connected Farm allows quicker access to information, resulting in better farm management decisions.

Connected Farm Scout App
