Case Construction Equipment has brought together under the name Case SiteSolutions all its precision construction services, including all telematics and machine control technologies.
Case SiteSolutions presently includes the company's SiteControl machine control solutions and SiteWatch telematics. Case says it will continue to improve, upgrade and expand these services, starting with the extension of the factory-ready machine control offering currently available for graders and dozers, as well as the improvements and global satellite coverage for its telematics solutions.
The number of machine parameters transmitted by the Case SiteWatch telematics system has been increased from 12 to 40. In addition, Case is introducing a hardware update with the new AM53 modem that includes 3G connectivity to increase the communication speed and coverage and backup battery to improve the security features.
To further develop and support these solutions, Case will launch in June an online learning tool called SiteSolutions Academy. The company describes the tool as a "centralized information-management system," where users can share information on basic operation as well as tips and tactics to increase utilization and performance.
