Farmers can now avoid the time lost and inputs wasted due to misconfigured implements with the affordable Trimble Auto Asset Selection App with Bluetooth beacons. With this award-winning solution installed on the GFX-750 or GFX-350 display, and ruggedized Bluetooth beacons strategically placed on farm equipment, Trimble’s Precision-IQ field application will automatically select the correct implement configuration.
It works very simply: 1) Set up an implement in Precision-IQ; 2) pair that configuration with the unique broadcast ID of a Bluetooth beacon; and 3) attach the beacon to the configured equipment. Every time a GFX display is within range of the beacon, such as by backing up a tractor to the implement, it will automatically select that equipment configuration for fieldwork.
The Auto Asset Selection App can even be set up to detect implement work-state, and prevent fieldwork from the beginning if the equipment is not deployed and ready to run, saving more time and further reducing the possibility of operator error.
