MobileControl and SmartCan – easy operation of machine functions with a mobile phone

HORSCH has unveiled the SmartCan system that will, in the future, serve as a means to link customer, machine and manufacturer. 

The machine has to be equipped with the SmartCan module. As development progresses, it will allow all machine data to be read and is the first step in providing the WiFi (WLAN) access to the machine.

Using a smartphone and the corresponding MobileControl app, the operator will then be able to access this data. The app is available for the Android (Google) and iOS (Apple) operating systems.

Using  the app, it is possible to easily carry out machine functions like calibration, nozzle tests on Leeb sprayers or a row test on the Maestro. In the future, wireless software updates or remote diagnostics with the dealer might be possible.

HORSCH SmartCan also allows for the transfer of telemetry data or the data exchange with farm management systems. At the Agritechnica 2019, the system will be connected to the agrirouter software.
