LiveLink spreads the word

JCB’s LiveLink telematics portal now includes integration with the what3words global location system.

The system maps the Earth’s surface into 3m x 3m squares, giving each location a unique three-word reference. LiveLink will use it to pinpoint machines to a specific location without requiring a postcode or a street address. 

This will assist with site visits in remote locations and in the recovery of stolen machines, states the manufaturer.

The system has been used internationally by emergency services, such as mountain rescue teams. 

Over 300,000 machines are now monitored by LiveLink, which gives operators and fleet managers access to operational data via an online portal and mobile app.
