Welcome to the Internet of Mobile Things #IoMT. While the users of e-scooters, e-bikes and other e-mobility solutions get used to enjoying the use of apps, professional fleet operators and producers of high-value e-vehicles are already looking for more sophisticated solutions, which allow them to stay connected with their vehicles directly, seamlessly and globally.
The mobile energy specialist, ANSMANN Industrial Solutions, has developed a rechargeable system including a GSM-module and a GPS tracker. This ‘Connected Mobile Power’ system was presented by ANSMANN at electronica 2018 in Munich.
Using ANSMANN battery packs, the designers of electric vehicles by standard get all the interfaces they need for tracking, security features and remote maintenance via mobile networks and IoT - without any app needed in between. If necessary to achieve certain user services, Bluetooth app functionality and the new IoT functions can be combined without compromise.
Thilo Hack, Head of Industrial Solutions at ANSMANN, stated: “For sure, those radio based new functionalities are not only relevant for e-mobility solutions. We are already discussing solutions based on ‘Connected Mobile Power’ to ensure remote control and maintenance for high-quality powertools or the surveillance of medical devices. Lastly about every mobile device could be given great new functions as well as a plus in safety and service by integrating their rechargeable batteries into the #IoMT – The Internet of Mobile Things.”
