New functions within Claas telematics include an overview of machine status and settings, as well as data and documentation transfer.

The automatic documentation means that machine data and agronomic information can be assigned to specific areas in a time-saving manner. Once the field boundaries have been stored in telematics, the system automatically recognises the field in which the machine is located. Based on the field boundaries and recorded tracks for each activity, the telematics platform then creates field-related documentation for various parameters. The system is fully automated.

Yield maps with NIR sensor

On the Jaguar foragers, harvest quantities and measurement values of the NIR sensor can be evaluated for each field. The NIR sensor provides information about dry substance content and forage constituents.

The telematics platform also produces precise yield maps for subarea-specific analysis. Data and maps can be exported and transferred in ISOXML format. If required, the dosage quantity of the silage additive, which is controlled based on the NIR measurement, can also be documented.

Automatic data transfer

Using the new Claas API, the telematics platform can connect directly to many well-known farm management systems. As a result, it’s now easier to transfer field boundaries to telematics and to automatically export and import application and management information. Manual export and import of data is no longer necessary.

Using DataConnect, it will be possible in future to display the mixed vehicle fleets with networked machines from John Deere, Case IH, Steyr and New Holland in telematics.

Telematics is fitted as standard on many Claas tractors and harvesters and, in addition to documentation, offers digital dealer support through remote service on request. This includes the transmission of faults to the responsible Claas service partner, who can order and deliver the correct part after remote diagnosis, helping to save time.
