IoT Solutions for Transportation

The Industrial Internet of Things is helping logistics and transport operators reduce costs and improve services. Explore how HMS' solutions can help


Industrial IoT within transportation is enabling road, rail, air and shipping manufacturers, together with fleet management enterprises, to communicate with their technicians (drivers) anytime, anywhere, allowing them to be proactive with in-field repairs, maintenance, etc.

Advances in mobile and wireless technologies are dramatically improving the way transportation and logistics businesses operate and use data. For example, connect an industrial vehicle to the Internet to leverage real-time data for optimized performance and monitoring of your fleet. 


Application: IoT for Recreational Vehicles

IoT is critical for manufacturers of recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles, jet skis and off-road vehicles to provide both an enhanced user experience to their customers using mobile devices, and improved diagnostics to their service personnel. The common challenge in achieving this is providing connectivity between the vehicle networks and the available network interfaces on PC and mobile platforms.

Solution: Wireless Edge gateway - Ixxat CANblue 

HMS edge gateways support network connectivity to various protocols, including CAN, Modbus and EtherNet/IP allowing operators to gather information on the whereabouts of their fleet and motor controls. The Ixxat CANblue gateway also provide connectivity between a remote vehicle network's and the available network interfaces on PC and mobile platforms.   

Recreational Vehicle Application Example
