NB-IoT Robust Tracking and Monitoring Solution

Project description

Affordable tool for monitoring and tracking assets

In recent years, the methods and tools used by companies to track their goods and assets have improved remarkably. This improvement though has come with some setbacks — specifically, high costs for subscription and maintenance of 2G and 3G mobile data connections, which are the main tools by which companies track and monitor their goods. This high price has been an especially heavy burden, increasing prices and making monitoring of assets an extremely costly process. The EU-funded stalkIT project aims to develop a robust, resistant and easily maintained tracking device that is affordable and much cheaper than current tools as well as a cloud platform that will allow easy and efficient monitoring of assets through the tracking devices.

Objective

Solutions for asset tracking and monitoring are mainly powered by ordinary mobile data connectivity such as 2G and 3G with high subscription and maintenance costs every year. This lack of affordability significantly decreases the number and types of assets that businesses can pay for monitoring; which especially affects SMEs and verticals with a low profit margin like waste management or construction and demolition. Consequently, they suffer usually equipment theft, loss and poor asset management.
StalkIT makes asset tracking & monitoring affordable for SMEs and opens the market to new asset types, including much smaller, lower-value items. However, reliability is always a key issue for new technologies. For this reason, we have tailored our innovation for harsh environments as proof of concept for the application of our technology in other verticals.
Based on the brand-new NB-IoT & LTE-M (LPWA) technologies, StalkIT is a full-stack solution formed by two ground-breaking pillars:
-A robust tracking device 10 times less expensive than current offerings designed to support IoT connectivity on lower-powered mobile data networks. This allows a practically maintenance free since the battery lasts up to 10 years. Besides, it is tailored to harsh environments (Rated IP67). As such, it suits applications in the waste recycling sector.
-A cloud platform which allow users have access to a monitoring software though mobile App and web portal. This includes a multi-layer map showing live and historic devices position, list of all devices sorted at customer’s preference, user administration and control and overview of all sensors.
