OEM-agnostic fleet-management system allows the quarry operator to monitor an entire fleet
LOOKING for a tool that can further improve the productivity and fuel efficiency of your quarry and heavy construction equipment? That will allow you to monitor and improve workplace safety in real time while reducing overall emissions on site? Komatsu Europe say their upcoming Smart Quarry Site all-in-one fleet-management solution will provide all this – and more.
Smart Quarry Site is scheduled to be released at the end of 2023, following its sneak preview at bauma 2022. This brand-agnostic solution focuses on six key areas: safety, site management, production, machine health, maintenance, fuel consumption, and CO2 emissions for quarry operations and large civil construction projects.
Smart Quarry Site provides real-time data of all machines in a fleet, including their payloads and production rates, helping to increase safety and production and reduce operating costs by identifying issues and bottlenecks, allowing operators to quickly make decisions to optimize fleet efficiency.
‘Smart Quarry Site gives our quarry and large construction customers an ongoing real-time overview of every machine’s movement and condition and allows them to visualize opportunities and achieve targets for each,’ said Daniel Heussen, general manager of business transformation at Komatsu Europe.
He added: ‘Important KPIs for the whole fleet, such as payload, fuel use and machine work time, are reported to let site managers make educated decisions without having to spend hours analysing raw data.’
With a unique ID, each operator can login to the system and receive instant information. The in-cab screen gives real-time feedback on current payload, material type, and destination.
Data can be exchanged between machines via a mesh network of peer-to-peer connections. When a machine is in an area with no connectivity, data shared on this network will automatically upload once one of the mobile machines comes back within range.
Thanks to this mesh network, the loader and truck will connect, allowing the loader operator to optimize the truck’s payload with every cycle.
The easy-to-use dashboards and real-time view facilitate quick access to fleet and production information for all back-office personnel. At a glance, they provide necessary details and insights on several aspects of a jobsite, such as safety, production, idling, CO2, and fuel and machine status.
Operators can receive a quick overview on topics such pre-start checks or production and can configure the report and select its timing so that it will be sent to their mailbox at the scheduled time.
