Industrial IoT: Keeping Heavy Duty Vehicles Moving

Heavy-duty vehicles are vital to business operations in many industries, from commercial trucking to agriculture and construction. Maintenance and repair costs for these sophisticated, expensive assets can represent 20 to 30 percent of a vehicle’s lifetime cost, incenting owners and operators to seek ways to save money on repairs to help improve profitability and productivity.

Manufacturers and fleet operators have broadly deployed telematics solutions in order to gain more insight into vehicle health; however, the usefulness of that insight is often limited due to connectivity constraints or lack of resources that can analyze the data generated by potentially hundreds of thousands of vehicles.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology turns this data into a valuable business asset. In fact, a well-designed IIoT system can tap the entirety of data that vehicles produce – even without continuous connectivity – and examine it in conjunction with related data sources, such as braking and transmission subsystems, to provide deeper insight into vehicle condition. Ultimately, IIoT positively impacts vehicle operations by improving uptime, reducing mean time to repair, and more rapidly pinpointing the root cause of failures.
