Smart Forestry

What would it mean to you to always know the smartest route to the timber with the least impact on the forest and well away from the waterlogged ground? To prepare tomorrow’s work from home so that the correct information is available at the start of the working day. Or to be able to allow a service technician to connect to your machine remotely to help you?

Smart Forestry gives you access to a collection of digital services that help make the workplace safe, smart, productive and sustainable - whether you have one or a hundred forest machines. You can keep track of your machines, collaborate with colleagues, and make wise decisions based on facts. 
Smart Forestry consists of three different applications, making it easy for you to find the one that suits you and your business.

Smart Forestry Fleet Monitoring

MaxiFleet work area management

Plan for better results

Fleet Monitoring opens new doors for preparing and planning work tasks for harvesters and forwarders alike. As the service is cloud-based, you can plan your work wherever you like and use any device with internet access. You can register identities, products, areas, maps, GIS data and other important information. This ensures that the operator has the correct information even before they start working and having the correct information also minimises the risk of unnecessary driving and mistakes.
MaxiFleet machine information

All machine information gathered in one place

Fleet Monitoring gathers all machine information about your fleet and continually provides insights into each individual machine. You can see the utilisation, operating status, and exact geographic location of each machine. This entails no extra work for the operator as all data are logged and saved automatically. It's easy to compare fuel consumption and production and the stored operation and production data are easy to tally, reducing your monthly accounts workload.
MaxiFleet interaction

Interaction and remote support

Fleet Monitoring gives you remote access to many practical functions: check the battery status, monitor the temperature in the cab or start the diesel heater. Access to remote support where Komatsu Forest’s experts connect to your machine offers additional peace of mind. You can even allow a technician to remote control the machine, troubleshoot any problems and update the settings and software. This minimises downtime and saves both time and money - not least by avoiding costly service callout expenses. Technicians can provide remote training as well.

Smart Forestry Vision

MaxiFleet worksite collaboration

Share information quickly and easily

With Vision it’s easy to share information with each other. The harvester operator plans suitable access roads, log roads and landings based on the worksite conditions. The forwarder operator can see the production in each working zone and optimise their forwarding to avoid unnecessary detours. Once the timber has been forwarded to the landing, the operator can mark the zone complete, simplifying follow-ups. Functions for marking particular areas and boundaries on the map and writing messages enable the team to help each other do a better job. You can also share information with other teams or companies. All information is updated in real-time.
MaxiFleet work site information

Efficient, low-impact work

Vision helps you to work more efficiently and with less impact on the forest. You get area maps with up-to-date information. You can plan the forwarding based on the harvester’s tracks, thereby saving time, diesel and the environment. You gain a good overview and reliable production data that make it easy to adjust your planning as needed. The map functions also make it easy to send an easily understood final report once an area has been completed.

Smart Forestry Precision

MaxiFleet Precision mindre

Precise positioning supports you in your work

Precision uses the latest satellite positioning technology to determine the machine's position with a margin of error of just a few centimetres. This opens up possibilities for a productive and smart way of working where you as an operator get important information and support to make wise decisions.

You can create digital boundaries around the work area or around protected areas and receive warnings if the machine comes too close to the boundary. Thanks to the high precision, machine tracks and stem codes can be clearly visualised and you can also show the exact position of the processed logs, making it easier to see which assortment is in the log pile. When planning thinning routes, line following with navigation support is a great help, as it helps you stay on the planned route.

It is also important that the user experience is as smooth and intuitive as possible, so there are many opportunities to customise both appearance and functionality.
