John Deere looks to support customers in optimising their operating processes. The world’s largest manufacturer of agricultural machines increasingly provides this support through digital planning tools. A wide range of machine types must be efficiently coordinated in order to ensure a smooth process and high machine utilisation. Planning required a data basis which takes account of agricultural needs. Navigation design had to be flexible enough to reliably guide all vehicle types, from cars to combine harvesters, up to the point at which they enter the field. Vehicle-specific arrival times were a key planning factor in the overall process.
John Deere has implemented a mobile application which allows management of fields, orders and creation of a fleet.
These resources were visualised on a map by localion M. Vehicle-specific parameters were used during route calculation and navigation. Map presentation, controls and navigation information were customised so that they fit the company’s corporate design.
Navigation maps have been developed which take account of the special needs of agriculture. Flexible download of these maps allows the solution to be used throughout Europe.
Localion M gave the customer a framework for map display, routing and navigation. The customer was therefore spared the difficulty of handling this complex issue and of cost-intensive in-house development. At the request of the customer, the package was tailored to create the best possible app user experience. The application was easily redesigned and new process flows supported thanks to localion M’s flexibility. The framework is continuously modified to keep pace with development of mobile platforms, and new functions are added.
