Transport Data Logger Aims to Conquer “Internet of Logistics”
26th September 2017
SpotSee, an internet of things (IoT) connectivity platform and parent to logistics monitoring brands ShockWatch, ShockLog, SpotBot, ShockTrak, WarmMark and OpsWatch, and Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions (BCDS), which designs and develops innovative connected devices for the IoT, have teamed up to target the internet of logistics. The companies have recently collaborated to develop the SpotBot BLE, a transport data logger that measures and transmits impact, tilt, temperature and humidity through Bluetooth communication.
“Bosch has a deep history of being a technology partner with market leaders,” said Markus Lang, CEO, BCDS. “We are delighted to collaborate with the SpotSee team to provide logistics customers with world-class IoT products and services.”
The SpotBot BLE is a cost-effective, simple and reliable way to bring transparency to the entire supply chain. The device operates using hardware and engineering support from Bosch that is connected and displayed through the SpotSee mobile application.
Alarm thresholds for each parameter measured by the SpotBot BLE (impact, tilt, temperature, and humidity) can be individually configured based on the sensitivities of the products being transported. At the end of the journey, data from the device is easily downloaded to the mobile application to quickly identify potential damage caused by threshold violations and to understand where in the supply chain they might have occurred.
“Our mission is to give unbiased, virtual eyes to logistics, quality and supply chain managers across the globe,” said Tony Fonk, CEO, SpotSee. “Combining the Bosch innovative sensors with our unique SpotSee platform and 40 years of logistics monitoring experience is an ideal fit for both companies.”
SpotSee is an end-to-end solution that helps customers spot damage in their assets and see it in real time using best-in-class hardware, low-cost connectivity, device management and cloud-based analytics. SpotSee has over 300 distributors and resellers throughout the globe, serving thousands of customers including most of the Fortune 500.
