YOUR MACHINES WORK 24/7. BOB DOES TOO.

BoB Assistant is an IoT device that alerts you in real-time on the operating status of your machines. Prevent failures and reduce downtime with the power of artificial intelligence and connected objects. Deploy factory 4.0 with zero infra, zero cabling, and zero configuration!

BOB'S TALENTS

INTELLIGENT

BoB learns quickly and well! It applies analysis algorithms embedded in its sensor to understand and monitor all of your equipment.

SIMPLE

Zero infra, zero wiring, zero configuration. To install BoB, simply place it on your equipment. BoB works autonomously for several years.

CONNECTED

BoB communicates accross LoRaWAN® networks, perfectly adapted to the Internet of Things (IoT). The maximum range for minimal energy consumption and long battery life!

SECURED

Your equipment production data is safe with BoB. It retains it and sends only encrypted scan reports.

USE CASES

BoB is deployed every day on various types of machinery across multiple industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, energy, oil & gas, building & facility management, plus more! There is almost no limit to the use of BoB Assistant!

INTEGRATE BOB INTO YOUR OWN SOLUTION

To benefit from BoB Assistant’s services in your IoT system, you must integrate the sensor into a LoRaWAN® network (public or private network), and into a web, data aggregation and presentation platform.

This is provided by your IT department, or provided by a specialised service provider. The platform will allow you to exploit the full potential of the reports and alerts provided by BoB Assistant, by merging this data with other data from your IOT, M2M or PLC ecosystem.

To enable this integration, nke WATTECO will provide you with the sensors, the sensor triplet keys for connection to the LoRaWAN® network and the codec documentation to exploit the sensor payload.
