Updates to the VisionLink user interface include easy-to-read and navigate screens regardless of device used: phone, tablet, notebook or desktop. The new version also includes a suite of apps enabling the customer to select a view and information based on the user’s role or task needing to be performed. For example, equipment or fleet managers can access data related to asset hours, location and utilization without having to sort through extraneous information, such as fault codes, maintenance schedules or productivity information that may not pertain to their responsibilities, Caterpillar says.
A service layer called the VisionLink Services Platform enables partners and third parties to create solutions using VisionLink data that go above and beyond the standard VisionLink offerings.
The VisionLink Unified Fleet app, developed for equipment managers and owner/operators, features easy and intuitive views of information such as hours, miles, location, idle time, asset status and customer-defined asset states. This approach simplifies information on the screen, allowing users to focus on information needed to perform their daily tasks.
The VisionLink Landfill app, developed for landfill operators, features views to better manage solid waste operations to monitor fill and compaction when using 3D/GPS Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control systems or Cat AccuGrade Compaction Control systems. The app calculates the volume of waste being placed and the compaction densities achieved.
The new VisionLink continues to support data being exported to and from other business systems complying with the AEM/AEMP Telematics API Standard.
