Software AG has explained how its Cumulocity IoT platform is supporting STW (Sensor-Technik Wiedemann) and Telefonica.
STW is deploying the IoT solution, powered by Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform, for remote condition monitoring of exhaust gas treatment systems retrofitted to London buses as part of the Greater London Authority’s plans.
HJS Emission Technology will provide the emissions systems to the Transport for London (TfL) buses, coupled with its UK partner, Emission Engineering (EEL).
More than 5,000 buses in London’s public transport network will be retrofitted with HJS Emission technology’s SCRT (Selective Catalytic Reduction Technology) by 2021. STW’s TC1 Telematics Controller (with built-in GPS) will also be fitted onto each bus in order to monitor their emissions at any time or location.
STW is an industrial vehicle telemetry specialist with significant experience in delivering manufacturers of mobile machines, agricultural equipment and specialty vehicles with digitalization, automation and electrification.
Michael Schmitt, CEO, STW, said: “We are using Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform and have rebranded it ‘STW machines.cloud’ as our IoT solution for the collection of data from on-board devices such as our TC1 and TC3G telematics modules.”
STW machines.cloud can be used on a personal computer or mobile device via a web interface. Each device on board a bus is monitored and tracks not only engine emissions, but also technical data, faults, routes, locations and fuel consumption. The data collected can be visualized using SCADA widgets in real time and present sophisticated diagnostics enabling real-time updates and calibration.
Software AG will assist Telefonica to deliver a solution for digital transformation and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the B2B market in Spain.
Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform operates across cloud, on premises and edge, and provides service providers with an end-to-end IoT solution. Telefonica has added Software AG’s Cumulocity platform to its own branded IoT offering.
“Cumulocity IoT platform and the development team will enable us to both increase the pace of innovation and to reduce the time to globally deploy IoT services to meet the needs of new and evolving needs of our customers,” Javier Magdalena Pinilla, director of Digital Business and TSOL, Telefonica Spain, said.
Cumulocity IoT provides an IoT-as-a-Service solution that includes high availability and multi-cluster deployment options, which strengthen its offering.
Cumulocity IoT incorporates several carrier-grade features, including code-free integration of devices supporting Low Power WAN (LPWAN) technologies used for long-term low bandwidth remote monitoring, Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), Lightweight M2M (LWM2M), and Long Range (LoRa).
