Doosan Telematics is an upgraded telematics package for its heavy equipment including excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks and will be standard on all of the company’s equipment, except for DX63-3 and DX85R-3 compact excavators. The new system includes a GPS unit; a Q-Pro wireless data modem and wireless service – the modem sends data collected from sensors on the machine to a website via a cellular signal; a satellite antenna and service that provides a communication link when the Doosan machine is working in remote locations and cellular service is not available; and the CoreTMS website, which provides access to reports and important machine data.
Each new machine that arrived after July 1, 2014 at dealerships for the manufacturer came with a complimentary three-year subscription, including prepaid wireless service. Customers monitoring their equipment remotely from an Internet-enabled device or on the CoreTMS telematics website have access to three years of prepaid wireless service. Once it expires, customers will have the option to purchase a service extension. Doosan has offered a telematics solution since 2008, and customers who have an active telematics subscription can access the CoreTMS website for machine details and reports.
