Mobile IoT Development and Implementation

IoT Vehicle Solutions

The Cross Company Mobile Systems Integration Group has developed a unique Internet of Things (IoT) solution designed specifically for mobile machines and heavy work vehicles. Powered by Elevāt, our cellular-based hardware and software platform allows us to develop a custom IoT portal specifically for you and your mobile work machine.

Our mobile and industrial IoT solutions are designed to lower costs and wasted time while increasing reliability and productivity. We do this by providing actionable data and analytics while creating an environment where secure, remote connections allow for optimized operations and production.

At Cross, we’ve worked with a variety of mobile machines across dozens of industries. We’ve designed many IoT-enabled technologies and provided reliable industrial IoT solutions to manufacturers and OEMs. And we can do it for you, too.

Your IoT Development Company

Our IoT connected vehicles are built with your process in mind. They’re designed to connect your vehicles, analytics, performance, and team into one seamless integration. Access to this kind of data and connectivity reduces costs for mobile vehicle OEMs by letting you know if a component isn’t working properly or maintenance is overdue. This also increases machine reliability and production productivity.

The Cross Mobile Systems Integration group wants to be your IoT development company. We’ll work directly with you as an extension of your engineering team. Our goal is to understand the unique needs of your production process, mobile machine products, and data analytic requirements. That way, we can integrate it all into a comprehensive IoT-connected vehicle.

Talk with a Cross representative today to begin the process of implementing IoT data reading devices in your mobile machines today.

Benefits of IoT Software Applications

Machines with IoT-enabled technologies are able to connect operators to the systems they’re utilizing. This is accomplished through machine-integrated data collection and production tracking. Engineers and manufacturers are then able to use the data collected to identify potential production problems, schedule maintenance or repairs, and check the status of different parts or systems.

When it comes to high-stakes industries, it’s absolutely crucial for critical machines to be functioning at optimal levels. That’s where IoT development comes in. Knowing the status of your machines allows for greater insight into production schedules, machine safety, and scheduled maintenance requirements.

The benefits of this for mobile machine manufacturers are unparalleled. We can build and integrate a custom internet portal for your machine that includes

Service Selling

The ability to sell services (ex: oil changes)

Data collection

Data collection for a better understanding of how your machine is operated, and understanding of warranty claims

Alerts via text or email

Unsafe operating condition, DM1 engine faults, exceeding operating parameters

Remote Downloads

The ability to download code remotely (saving on service calls)

End-User Focus

Helping your customer port the data to their own collection site

Better Long-Term Performance

Stay on top of maintenance and increase the lifespan of your machine

Advanced Machine Telematics

More and more manufacturers are moving towards intelligent IoT for machines. The ability to have fast, reliable cloud access to your machines no matter where they are is becoming necessary as OEMs are able to expand production further and further. And that’s exactly what we provide.

Cross mobile IoT solutions reduce downtime, eliminate unnecessary spend, and increase safety and compliance, while increasing performance visibility for work machines. This functionality is rapidly becoming standard as more and more companies are making the switch to cloud-based monitoring solutions for equipment and hydraulics.

Mobile equipment IoT provides sophisticated data and monitoring capabilities that simplify data collection and analytics for off-road equipment OEMs, fleet managers, and other manufacturers. These IoT solutions for heavy equipment collect and display custom data that can be used to maximize performance and machine longevity.

Easy to understand interface

Customizable data reports and collection

Future-oriented design and implementation

Compliance and warranty reporting

Safety and security compliant

Sophisticated connectivity

System Features

No two industries are exactly alike. And the IoT needs of a specific machine may vary widely even within the same industry. That’s something we understand.

Likewise, the supporting data for a heavy agricultural machine’s needs is very different from the data analytics required for an off-road construction vehicle.

That’s why our IoT software and hardware is designed to be configurable based on the needs of the operator, machine, and industry. This customization allows users to collect the data they need for their specific application.

A mobile-rated (IP67) cellular gateway attached to your equipment transmits telemetry data for any number of variables. This IoT enabled data monitoring allows customers to easily collect and store information such as engine hours and downtime, engine fault codes, GPS location information, fuel level, engine oil temperature, hydraulic temperature, and more.

If these are features you need for your mobile machine, we can help. We’ve worked with a variety of industries including:

Frequently Asked Questions

IoT devices are hardware (such as actuators or sensors) that are programmed for certain machine applications. They are able to transmit data over the internet or a local network. These devices allow for remote monitoring, troubleshooting, and data collection of mobile industrial machines and heavy vehicles.

A wide range of industries and applications stand to benefit from the implementation of industrial IoT solutions. These can be utilized by construction companies, agricultural machines, mining operations, municipal equipment, railroads, forestry vehicles, and many others.

Additional benefits of IoT development and implementation are proactive equipment maintenance, management of energy consumption, remote monitoring and data collection, smart predictions and analysis, safety management, rapid prototyping, improved safety on the job-site, and predictive maintenance (among many other benefits).

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
