WITOS: The WIRTGEN GROUP’s Telematics Solution

Connected, Automated, Transparent

Cutting-edge construction machinery and sophisticated telematics solutions go hand in hand at the Wirtgen Group. With these systems, users are always two steps ahead on the job site.

Construction projects are becoming increasingly complex, and as a result, the demands on project management are also increasing. Every job site has three things in common – cost, quality, and time pressure. WITOS, the telematics platform from the Wirtgen Group, offers a seamless package of solutions for anyone that wants to increase productivity and improve their future prospects today.

WITOS is a system infrastructure that brings together a variety of different components. In addition to the FleetView fleet management solution, this also includes process management and documentation modules.

Fleet management: Keep Machines in Perfect Condition

The WITOS FleetView fleet management system makes processes more efficient thanks to system-supported processing, sharing, visualization, and analysis of machine and position data.

With WITOS, the telematics solution from the WIRTGEN GROUP, you always have an overview of your machine fleet’s key operating data.

The solution offers a variety of features, from systematically monitoring the operating status of machines on a daily basis to supporting maintenance and diagnostic processes – thereby minimizing response times and downtimes and optimizing maintenance work. WITOS data can also be imported into existing systems via suitable interfaces.

The SmartServices inspection and maintenance agreements perfectly complement the fleet management features. With WITOS FleetView, customers can keep track of where their machines are and what operating mode they are in – at any time and from any location. This allows them to respond early to upcoming maintenance work in order to ensure that their machines retain their value over the long term.

Process management and quality enhancement thanks to a digitally connected job site

The Wirtgen Group has developed intelligent software solutions and integrated them into the WITOS infrastructure in the form of modules to optimize the process of connecting value chains in planning, execution, and operation.

Digital processes and tools can be used to increase the profitability of construction projects.

For example, the full version of WITOS Paving Plus is Vögele’s software-based process management solution for asphalt paving. It connects everyone involved, from the asphalt mixing plant to the paver operator, and consists of a total of five modules. As a result, site planning (Control), mix supply (Materials), mix transport (Transport), asphalt paving (JobSite), and subsequent process analysis (Analysis) can all be managed in real time via a single system. The site manager and paving team can respond to potential disruptions quickly and systematically and make paving processes much more efficient.

Once a construction project has been completed, it can also be analyzed and documented. This data can be used to identify ways to optimize future jobs. Because the data and information can be shared with all of the contractors working on a site, construction processes also become more transparent, allowing all of the parties involved to carry out their work based on the same, up-to-date information – thereby permanently improving the paving process.

A Smart Solution for Digital Job Site Documentation

The Wirtgen Group also offers practical WITOS modules for the documentation of projects using construction machinery from Wirtgen, Vögele, and Hamm.

Asphalt Paving: WITOS Paving Docu

WITOS Paving Docu offers contractors a smart solution for the digital documentation and analysis of asphalt job sites.

WITOS Paving Docu can be used to log paving data, save delivery documents, and automatically send job site reports.

With this system, the road paver acts as a server and is responsible for sharing data between the machine and a smartphone app via a Wi-Fi connection. Using the app, site managers and paver operators can start jobs with WITOS Paving Docu via the machine terminal and log a wealth of machine and paving data such as the working width, paving speed and stops, and the effective paving time. In addition, the system can be used to scan delivery documents via QR code (or enter them in manually) as well as continuously calculate paving areas, quantities, and surface densities. After finishing the job, site reports are automatically e-mailed to selected recipients.

WITOS Paving

Comprehensive process optimization, simple documentation, or monitoring paving temperature – with WITOS Paving Plus, WITOS Paving Docu, and RoadScan, VÖGELE offers suitable digital solutions for every requirement.

Compaction: WITOS HCQ

When it comes to compaction processes in asphalt paving and earthworks, RFPs increasingly require contractors to offer detailed and comprehensive compaction measurement and documentation.

WITOS HCQ makes it easy to measure, monitor, document, and manage compaction processes.

To help meet these requirements, Hamm’s modular HCQ (HAMM Compaction Quality) system offers solutions for measuring, monitoring, documenting, and managing compaction and compaction processes. The HCQ Navigator, for example, is used to comprehensively monitor compaction – in a fully automated manner that includes a thorough analysis of the compaction process. In doing so, the system continuously displays compaction performance to the roller operators on their panel PC. During compaction, all of the process data is sent directly from the rollers to the Wirtgen Group’s WITOS portal via a cellular connection, where it is also available to document and analyze the compaction process. WITOS HCQ also allows site managers and other authorized parties to track compaction progress in real time, even from another location – allowing them to adjust work processes as required. As a result, contractors can cut costs by reducing the number of passes and operating expenses and increase the quality of their work.

WITOS HCQ

With WITOS HCQ, you can now track your compaction progress remotely and in real time. View key information, manage processes, and make decisions based on qualified data without being on site.

Cold Milling: Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT)

The Wirtgen Group also uses the WITOS telematics solution’s infrastructure in the field of road rehabilitation.

With the Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT), information flows directly between the machine, the operator, the service workshop, and the scheduling office.

Wirtgen has developed a solution that, for the first time, makes it possible to accurately and reliably document actual milling work completed – the Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT). To do so, the WPT first uses a laser scanner to measure the cross-sectional profile of the area to be milled. Surface milling performance and milling volume are then precisely measured using GPS positioning and other sensors. The machine operator can continuously monitor key performance data in real time on the control screen. After completing the milling job, a report with all of the relevant performance and consumption data is automatically generated and e-mailed to the machine owner.

Without the WPT, a surveying technician usually has to calculate the milling work performed at the end of the job manually, resulting in additional costs and delays in completing the project. With its WPT, the specialist for cold milling machines demonstrates how the automated flow of information between the machine, the operator, the service workshop, and the scheduling office makes processes easier, faster, and more cost-effective.

Complete Modular Solution

These examples from the Wirtgen Group’s different product brands show that with WITOS, customers can select the solution they need from a comprehensive range that offers the right tool for every application. As a result, contractors can save time, cut costs, and improve quality when carrying out their projects, while simultaneously managing all of their machines in a more efficient manner.

WIRTGEN PERFORMANCE TRACKER

With the PERFORMANCE TRACKER (WPT), it is now, for the first time, possible to accurately and reliably document actual milling work performed. Furthermore, the WITOS telematics solution’s infrastructure ensures that information always flows smoothly between the machine, the operator, the service workshop, and the scheduling office.
