SpotBot™ Cellular


The SpotBot™ Cellular is a standalone impact and temperature data logger designed to record tri-axial impact, temperature monitoring and tracking through cellular connectivity, allowing it to communicate even without line of sight to a satellite. With the SpotSee web-based platform, users can obtain data from the cloud through any web-based device. The SpotBot™ Cellular can reduce the high cost of global logistics and supply chain damage through a real-time damage monitoring system. It assists in transport, supply chain management, shipping and plant managers to easily identify where, when and how impact or temperature damage has occurred from anywhere in the world. The service also allows subscribers to prevent damaged shipments early and execute cost-reducing procedures.

The collected data is delivered in real-time to the SpotSee Cloud via the SpotSee Connectivity, a unique and low cost global cellular communication system that can be accessed anywhere with cellular coverage. This is possible as SpotSee owns its own Mobile Virtual Network, providing global messaging and cloud services for less than $10 per month. The SpotBot™ Cellular generates extremely accurate impact data up to 65G, which is 4 times the spectrum of the best competitive alternative (only able to capture 16G). The impact monitoring range of this device is ideal for products weighing between 100-60,000 lbs. Using off-the-shelf lithium batteries, the SpotBot™ Cellular can operate for more than 70 days while generating an hourly summary report of monitored data.

Once the data is recorded, it is analysed automatically in real-time for immediate and insightful reports such as time, location, frequency and severity of the damage. API’s are also available for users to retrieve the data with their tools. The impact setting of the device can be easily configured based on the product being monitored. The SpotBot™ Cellular will then deliver a timestamp of alerts of the impact encountered that exceeded the specified threshold. Once the trip is over, users can download a PDF file that maps out the top 10 largest impacts or a CSV file with the top 50 largest impacts and a time slot report. This allows users to identify which route’s point was most affected by mishandling and make necessary changes.

For applications, the SpotBot™ Cellular is to be attached to goods and shipment for impact and temperature monitoring and is typically used in applications that involve automotive parts, electronics, construction equipment, oil supplies, semiconductors and transformers.
