Leica iCON Telematics: Increasing Efficiency for Machine Control Operations

The Leica iCON telematics services include fast and easy data transfer from office to site and to construction machines, remote support for the operators and basic fleet management functionality. iCON telematics seamlessly integrates with the workflow on construction projects and the Leica iCON solutions, simplifying work processes and enabling significant time and cost savings.

Leica iCON telematics currently consists of three modules – View, Sync and Track. These modules can be accessed through an intuitive web-based interface with powerful dashboard to rapidly find important information needed for taking actions. Users are also presented with a fleet overview and have overlay project data on Google map. 

View supports multitasking, meaning users can have several machine panels active simultaneously. The office manager or support personnel can remotely view the operator’s screen, carry out remote diagnostics and provide instant support if needed. This reduces site visits and saves time by remotely checking settings on the machine. Supervisors can increase machine uptime by scheduling operator training with a remote instructor.

Sync enables upload of the latest design data to the fleet immediately, ensuring the fleet works with up-to-date project files on the machines. Data can be transferred remotely in both directions from the field to the office, using ‘drag & drop’ from the desktop. Latest firmware can also be  uploaded remotely what reduces machine visits, decreases downtime and simplifies support and maintenance.

Track functionality allows the user to track and monitor the machine fleet in real-time and provide regular activity reports by machine or by project. It enhances day-to-day operations by tracking results instantaneously and monitor the utilization of equipment on site.
