Obstacle Intelligence uses digital cameras and high-resolution monitors to display images of what is behind the machine to an in-cab display. Radar or sonic detectors issue alerts of potential obstacles. Mirror-mounted cameras provide a wider field of view than conventional mirrors. Obstacle Intelligence protects anyone and anything in close proximity to the machine. And that’s better for everyone’s livelihood.
Jobsite automation ekes out efficiency in every machine in your connected fleet to make the repetitive, less repetitive. Exclusive Auto-Shift Plus eliminates the need to use the inching pedal, allowing the operator to use the brake and throttle only. Auto-pass raises the blade and flips its rotation with a single button, which reduces operator input of repetitive functions at the beginning and end of each pass. Industry-leading automation makes every machine in your fleet work smarter, together.
Machine monitoring and Connected Support keep you updated with machine and fleet performance, along with job progress. All to keep your business running. Standard on most models, JDLink constantly monitors machine performance, which can be viewed by you on the JDLink dashboard and monitored by our Machine Health Group. An industry exclusive, John Deere's Expert Alerts system analyzes data from thousands of machines at Machine Health Monitoring Centers to notify us of potential issues. Our Machine Health Group in conjunction with John Deere Connected Support, analyzes the data sent to us to determine if we can solve the issue remotely or if it requires a technician.
