Digitalization

In recent years every manufacturer of working vehicles has become aware of the importance of connectivity and data management, and the rapid evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT).  These topics cover a broad range of functions, technologies and challenges.

Digitalization is the transformation of a business using digital technologies.  In the off highway world this means using networking, data management, cloud computing and IoT (Internet of Things) technologies to connect working vehicles and their managing entities locally or remotely to provide new capabilities for diagnostics, troubleshooting, operations and a wide variety of other functions. These technologies may be added on a vehicle as original equipment by an OEM, or they may be added as an after-market capability by distributors or fleet owners to meet their needs.

STW offers a variety of products, software and services that can help launch or accelerate the digitalization process and begin bringing the benefits of IoT to an OEM or fleet owner.

At the core of STW’s digitalization offering is its suite of telematics modules: the ESX-TC3G, the ESX-TC1 and a wired option for our ESX-3Xx controller family, the expansion board EB07.

Next is the critical software and software as a service (SaaS) that creates a full IoT solution.  These products are:

  • insight: The software that resides on the telematics modules and performs all configuration, data acquisition, logging and a variety of other functions in a Linux environment with full flexibility for adding other applications.
  • access: A cloud-based solution that provides a secure tunneling capability for access and even login to a controller on a vehicle. (Coming soon!)
  • VDSR – Our lightweight cloud solution that offers real-time acquisition and visualization of data, logging, alarm monitoring with email and sms, as well excellent user-friendly configuration of all functionality.
  • cloud: Our complete cloud-based IoT solution that allows for a more full-featured, data base-oriented approach and provides a vast palette of functions, reports, smart rules and other capabilities.
