’s new TDC - telematic data collector - gateway enables easy collection of sensor and system data from mobile and stationary systems.
Together with localisation data (GPS), the data can be transferred to a server or cloud via a 3G mobile communication protocol (MQTT) provided in the system.
Data can be displayed, monitored, recorded and analysed in no time at all and from any location, according to the company. This means that users can respond in a strategic, economically appropriate manner.
As well, evaluations can be carried out – based on the incoming data – in the TDC system, resulting in real-time outputs (responses) via I/Os or SMS messages (alarms).
The TDC can be used in stationary traffic, like self-sufficient traffic monitoring stations, or on mobile units such as trailers, buses and tanker trucks.
Not only does Sick use sensors to provide real-time data for ongoing function automation, it also provides access to smart data as a service for the detection of tunnel or vehicle conditions, for predictive maintenance and process organisation and optimisation.
