Komatsu develops remote monitoring iPhone app

Komatsu has developed an iPhone app for its KOMTRAX remote machine monitoring system.

According to Komatsu the free app “gives instant access to vital information on every KOMTRAX equipped Komatsu machine in the user’s fleet”.

“Our new
KOMTRAX app gives Komatsu customers the ability to monitor critical machine operating
parameters, along with usage, performance and location, as well as overall
fleet management,” Todd Connolly, Komatsu Australia’s head of fleet management and ICT, said .

“By providing
customers with valuable information regarding their Komatsu machines, it helps
get a quick overview of what machines in their fleet have been up to – all via
their iPhone.”

The app provides a number of different features for users which include the standard identification of each machine’s location (including driving directions based on the phone’s location); the machine’s hours of use; idle time identification; fuel usage monitoring; whether any machine cautions have been triggered; and an ability to identify any machines that have not been used through a ‘no usage’ feature’.

“All these
features can be customised so users can view set time periods, from one day up
to a month,” Connolly said .

“In addition,
a fleet can be filtered by model, customer management number or serial number.

KOMTRAX remote monitoring system was one of the first OEM-specific systems on
the market, and has proven itself an invaluable tool in fleet and machine
management,” he said.
