GPS Timber system
The system consists of a software application that is placed in the facility's operations center and a client software installed in each vehicle.
The central software manages data from the trucks but also data from the saw table and sorting. Each vehicle has a GPS receiver that keeps track of where the vehicle is located and which activities are performed. The communication between vehicles and the central server is wireless.
From the trucks are sent continuously information about the position and activity to the central server. The information from the trucks is compiled with information from other trucks, saw table, sorting etc.
