Feb 21, 2017John Deere introduces app to monitor equipment
To help growers monitor, adjust and learn from the performance of their planter or sprayer while it moves through the field, John Deere has introduced its new Connect Mobile App. Growers can monitor job quality in real time and better understand what’s going on with their planter or sprayer in row-by-row and nozzle-by-nozzle detail, according to the company. In future developments with this new app, other operations, like harvesting and the ability to add more data will be included.
By visualizing job performance, operators can identify potential problems, according to John Deere. Multiple map layers across production steps provide additional insights for growers. Operators can move the app from one John Deere machine to the next and from one production step to another with Connect Mobile’s common user interface.
Using the app, operators can compare data layers from previous production steps with what’s seen when scouting fields. Connect Mobile provides more options for operators to view data in the cab, including the John Deere Gen 4 CommandCenter that shows performance data averaged across the field, the boom, or the planter section.
