Mobile machinery: IoT for real digitalization

Digitalization is becoming more and more prevalent in the field of mobile machinery. Thanks to efficient IoT solutions, users benefit from data-driven service and predictive maintenance. Manufacturers are no longer focusing solely on selling their machine, but are using the possibilities of digitization and data analytics to generate additional added value and new business models. In particular, the areas of service, after sales as well as development benefit from the availability of data.

Opportunities of data-driven IoT for mobile machines.

Data-driven IoT offers opportunities and added customer value for both manufacturers and users of mobile working machines. The focus is often on a customer and service portal that provides end customers with digital services around the machines and fleet management based on real-time data from the machines – from KPI and geofencing to spare parts, service management, remote support and much more.


  • After-sales portal based on IoT data as a central access point for customers and digital services
  • Transparency about the real usage
  • Product optimization based on real usage data
  • New business models such as pay-per-use and related rental models
  • Data analysis and reports
  • Error detection and guided error analysis


  • Functions such as fleet management, tracking, geo-fencing and theft protection
  • Central access to service history as well as service management
  • Operational information and documentation
    Performance evaluations and benchmarks
  • Reduction of investment costs through pay-per-use options

Our approach for your IoT solution

To develop a central customer and service portal based on live data from your mobile machines, we rely on a holistic approach. That’s why we accompany them from the conception and pilot operation of your IoT solution to the expansion and development of predictive maintenance use cases.

Dashboard with an overview of all machines used, as well as upcoming maintenance dates, map view with status information, and other relevant content, e.g. B. News

Following technologies are used

  • Cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure or the com2m IoT platform with existing basic services
  • CAN bus IoT gateway with efficient communication via MQTT
  • J1939 as protocol for reading out data on the CAN bus
  • AEMP interface for fleet management solutions

Complementing our high IoT expertise, we can rely on strong partners: As com2m, we are part of adesso SE and work closely with the group’s companies.

Böcker Car Cranes

Customer portal BöckerConnect based on IoT data

Creating new solutions for service processes, improving product knowledge and at the same time generating new added value for customers. As a manufacturer of truck-mounted cranes, Böcker pursued these goals by developing an IoT solution. Together with com2m, a solution was developed which offers live monitoring and many services for the end customer as well as for Böcker itself.

IoT cloud infrastructure and service applications for energy storage

In the course of digitisation, HOPPECKE is looking into the possibilities of data acquisition (Internet of Things / IoT) and the resulting opportunities. Data is to be recorded on batteries of the three product lines Motive Power, Reserve Power and SpecialPower and centrally combined in a cloud-based platform.
