Komatsu’s new mixed-equipment telematics solution
By Catrin Jones30 March 2022
Komatsu has released a new digital hub, My Komatsu, which the company says allows contractors to interpret visual analyses of data collected from numerous sources, such as from different OEMs equipment.
In a press release, Komatsu said that the My Komatsu application can pull data from Komtrax, Komtrax Plus, ISO API 15143-3 (AEMP 2.0) data from other OEMs, or other direct data sources.
The data is then used to produce analytics that can better streamline fleet management processes as well as reduce multiple IDs and passwords.
The My Komatsu application, with the ISO-15143-3 (AEMP 2.0) telematic API (application programming interface), connects telematic data from all equipment or is able to access it through monitoring and analysis services.
The system can be used on Komatsu and non-Komatsu machines – enabling fleet managers to view their entire fleet – to benchmark machine performance, track fuel consumption and manage data on one dashboard.
Matthew Beinlich, director of digital support solutions for Komatsu, said, “Starting today, our customers can get the most important telematics data, such as location, hours, fuel consumption, idle ratio and production, from My Komatsu for many of the other brands of equipment they may operate.
“Enter the ISO 15143-3 API credentials for those brands into My Komatsu once, and you’ll no longer need to log into each OEM’s system separately each day.”
