SpotBot™ Cellular is a standalone impact and temperature data logger, capable of tri-axial impact recording, temperature monitoring and tracking through cellular connectivity, allowing it to communicate even without line of sight to a satellite. With the SpotSee web-based platform, users can access the data form the cloud through any web-based device. SpotBot™ Cellular is capable of reducing the high cost of global logistics and supply chain damage through a real-time damage monitoring system.
The data logger aids in transport, shipping, supply chain management, and plant managers to easily identify where, when and how impact or temperature damaged has occurred. It also allows users to stop damaged shipments early and execute cost-reducing procedures. The collected data is delivered in real-time to the SpotSee Cloud through the SpotSee Connectivity, which is a special and low cost global cellular communication system that can be accessed at any location that has cellular coverage. This is possible as SpotSee owns its own Mobile Virtual Network which provides cloud services and global messaging for less than $10 a month.
The SpotBot™ Cellular can generate extremely accurate impact data up to 65G, which is 4 times the spectrum of the best competitive alternative making (which is only able to capture 16G). The range for impact monitoring is ideal for products between 100 – 60,000 lbs. With the use of the off-shelf lithium batteries, the device can operate for more than 70 days while generating an hourly summary report of monitored data. Once the data is recorded, it is automatically analysed in real-time for immediate and insightful reports that include the time, location, frequency and severity of the damage, API’s are also available for customers to retrieve the data to use with their tools.
The impact settings of the SpotBot™ Cellular can be easily configured to suit the product being monitored. Once an impact over a specified threshold occurred, the device will deliver time stamp of alerts to users. Once the trip is over, users can then download a PDF which maps out the top 10 largest impacts or a CSV file with the top 50 largest impacts and a time slot report. This would allow users to identify the area which was affected by mishandling and make necessary changes. SpotBot™ Cellular is typically used in applications that involve automotive parts, electronics, semiconductors, construction equipment, oil supplies and transformers.
