Komatsu Forest launches MaxiVision, a new digital tool that helps the forest machine operator to visualise the state and conditions of the forest.
Different map views provide the operator with data about ground conditions and the rest of the team’s production, making it possible to plan the work as efficiently as possible and with minimal forest impact. Since everything is cloud-based, updates occur in real time and any changes are immediately seen onscreen in the cab.
With MaxiVision, the operator can combine maps of the area with the latest data on ground conditions into a single image and, at the same time, see both the own production data and that of the colleagues – all updated in real time. The work overview is a great tool for planning production and enables the operator to make well-founded decisions. MaxiVision also allows for effective collaboration between harvesters and forwarders as each team member can see what their colleagues are doing.
The MaxiVision service not only offers team members a good overview of each other’s work, but also helps to facilitate communication between operators. By sending messages to each other or marking particular areas on the map collaboration can be improved and the outcome likewise. This unmatched integration between harvester and forwarder provides an optimised workflow and increased productivity.
Komatsu Forest is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of forest machines. The company sells its products all over the world and is wholly owned by the Japanese company Komatsu Ltd.
