Hitachi reveals new telematics API
By Dan Colombini23 September 2021
Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) has announced new products to improve fleet and data management.
The firm is now providing a new telematics application programming interface (API) for customers with different brands of equipment, who want to view their machine data in one place.
The Hitachi telematics API system will allow them to receive the data from different OEM remote monitoring systems into a platform of their choice.
This includes existing manufacturer-supplied platforms or an independent fleet management software.
Using the system also gives customers the option to receive data on their fleet every 10 or 60 minutes, or every 24 hours if they prefer, according to the company.
ABAX fleet management
In addition, Hitachi is also working closely with fleet management telematics company ABAX to provide a comprehensive fleet management system to owners of mixed equipment fleets.
This device-free solution, A Smart Connect, enables customers to monitor the location and operational information of all their construction equipment, as well as tools, vehicles and other assets with one set of login details.
Yemi Onabiyi, service business support engineer at HCME, said, We recognise the growing importance of telematics technology to our customers for monitoring the location and performance of their machinery, and to ensure it is being used as effectively and efficiently as possible.
“Our remote monitoring solutions have been designed to help customers fully digitalise their business to enhance efficiency, maximise availability and reduce life-cycle costs.”
