Hiber announces new version of IoT tracking system for remote monitoring of heavy industrial vehicles

Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Las Vegas, USA. 5 January 2022 – IoT-as-a-Service scaleup Hiber announced at CES 2022 a new version of its satellite-based HiberEasypulse fleet monitoring system to support the tracking and analysis of heavy industrial vehicles and machinery anywhere on earth.

Developed primarily for the mining, construction, agriculture and forestry sectors, this second version of HiberEasypulse includes new CANbus capabilities that deliver more detailed data from heavy vehicles in the field. HiberEasypulse can connect to any vehicle with a CAN port and share data on a dashboard and third-party telematics services via APIs, enabling operators to manage a mixture of brands and models in a single system.

HiberEasypulse improves operating efficiency and maintenance scheduling of industrial assets and reduces emissions, thefts and downtime by analysing a wide range of information, from fuel level and vehicle location to engine errors and driver behaviour. 

The system can also provide production insights, such as the distance travelled by agricultural vehicles during harvesting or the quantity of material mined during a cycle. Data are summarised in a scorecard and a ranking system, highlighting asset performance trends and actionable insight into vehicles requiring particular attention.

HiberEasypulse includes a CANbus Edge Station device that connects to a vehicle’s local data bus and transmits critical positioning and status data every 15 minutes via a global satellite network. The device can be attached easily to vehicles using magnets or custom mounting systems and is powered directly by the connected asset. 

Roel Jansen, CEO of Hiber, comments, “Keeping track of valuable assets such as heavy vehicles in remote locations is near impossible without satellite-enabled IoT monitoring. We are using our expertise in IoT and connectivity to deliver global coverage and support a far wider range of industrial use cases with a complete solution that is affordable and easy to use.”

“HiberEasypulse allows organisations to see where their remote assets are and how they are performing anywhere on earth. There will be nothing better suited to monitoring excavators operating in places like open-pit mines in Mozambique or river barges on the Amazon.”
