JOHN Deere was awarded a SIMA 2013 silver medal for its new Remote Display Access (RDA) system.
Available later this year, the RDA telematics solution allows remote access to the on-board GreenStar 2630 display unit.
This means that the operator, working on a tractor, combine harvester, self-propelled sprayer or forage harvester, can receive immediate assistance from the fleet or farm manager, or directly from the dealer – for example, to get support for machine and implement setup (including ISOBUS), optimisation and troubleshooting.
Potential machine downtime or insufficient use of the equipment in the field can be significantly reduced.
The operator calls the relevant expert for assistance on a mobile phone. That person – from anywhere in the world – can then log on via a dedicated website and view the machine’s on-board display screen on their own computer, tablet or smart phone.
The award-winning application was developed by John Deere’s European Technology Innovation Centre (ETIC) in Germany.
RDA is a new addition to John Deere’s FarmSight initiative which connects equipment, owners, operators, dealers and consultants in order to enhance productivity, increase efficiency and reduce overall input costs.
