JLG Unveils ClearSky Smart Fleet's Next-Gen IoT Features

At the IPAF Summit in Berlin, Germany, JLG Industries Inc. provided a sneak peek of its latest product, the ClearSky Smart Fleet. This innovative platform utilizes Internet of Things (IoT) technology and enables comprehensive fleet management and interaction between machines.

This JLG system will launch in late Summer/early Fall 2023.

“Telematics today can only do so much,” says Ara Eckel, director of product management for JLG’s connected solutions. “ClearSky Smart Fleet reimagines what’s possible, paving the way to a new frontier for connectivity solutions in the industry. More than yet another singular piece of software, it’s built as a robust, constantly evolving IoT platform capable of delivering new functionality, new insights and new ways to run cost-effective operations.”

This generation of ClearSky is a ground-up redesign, adding innovative elements to transform the way customers work.

Key features include:

  • Digitized daily processes for operational efficiencies
  • Accurate and efficient machine location
  • Additional equipment service capabilities
  • Streamlined logistics with Automated Site Networks
  • Actionable, on-demand machine and fleet insights

According to Eckel, ClearSky Smart Fleet will be standard on most new machines produced later this year, and customers with existing JLG products can continue to use the legacy ClearSky program for their connected needs.

Both platforms will be integrated into Online Express, JLG’s 24/7 e-Commerce site.
