During the John Deere FarmSight Technology Summit in Des Moines we saw a live demonstration of Remote Display Access. During the event we broke up into groups like this one to rotate display stations for different products being announced. In the video below you can watch the demo and hear our presenters talk about the benefits of this new technology. To use Remote Display Access from a remote computer, tablet or smartphone, users can log in to JDLink.com or MyJohnDeere.com and navigate to the Remote Display Access link that connects to the display in the cab of the equipment they select. The actual live operator’s view of the display data is sent via wireless cellular data connection from the MTG to the John Deere communications network, which the remote user can access from their device.
As farmers integrate more precision technology into their equipment and operations, the ability to remotely supervise and support those field operations becomes even more important to both farmers and dealers. To provide that support, John Deere introduces Remote Display Access, which allows users to view the operator’s display screen on their John Deere equipment.
By using an Internet-connected device, users with Remote Display Access can view the operator’s GreenStar™3 2630 Display screen, which helps them to identify any problems, assist the operator in navigating the steps needed to resolve an issue or ensure correct settings and machine operation.
To operate Remote Display Access requires the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display; JDLink Modular Telematics Gateway (MTG) hardware with the latest updates; JDLink subscription with Remote Display Access; and an ethernet cable to connect the display to the MTG.
Displays from multiple machines can be viewed at the same time, and multiple remote users can view the same operator’s display if a remote desktop sharing program is used. Remote Display Access is compatible with most web browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, Google Chrome and Apple Safari 5.0.
