Remote Forklift Monitoring Solution

Efficiency and Safety

Forklift Monitoring System protects your valuable assets such as goods and infrastructure in a warehouse setting in a cost-efficient manner. MEMO ELKO’s Remote Forklift monitoring solution enables you to track the real usage of your lift trucks through a remote connection. It provides you with an online view and periodic PDF reports that illustrate the actual use of your lift trucks, making it a great tool for scheduling your lift truck fleet’s maintenance actions and consequently improving the fleet’s uptime.

Benefits for Forklift manufacturers

  • Fully indigenous – hence can be customised to your needs.

  • Track usage of forklift with respect to:

    • Running Hours of forklift

    • Location of Forklift

    • Oil level, brakes liquid level, battery level, fuel level, possible failures or other information provided by the forklift

  • Number of up-down

  • Alerts in case of:

    • Battery Capacity/fuel level

    • Fuel Theft/removed Notifications

    • Operator Presence

    • Collision

    • ID card Misuse

  • Any other custom alerts, data collection as per your specific forklift model.

Benefits for Forklift users

  • Fully indigenous – hence reports, alerts, can be customised to your needs.

  • Daily / weekly reports by email on:

    • Running Hours / idle time

    • Operational hours

    • Hour Meter reading for maintenance

    • Number of up-down movements

    • Other usage based information

  • Daily alerts on:

    • Operational parameters like RPM monitoring

    • Need of maintenance based on Battery Voltage/Fuel Level ,speed etc.

    • Fuel Theft/removed Notifications

Solution Details

Parameters collected

The system collects following information using different sensors:

  1. RFMS allow tracking forklift’s location and gather internal parameters (oil level, brakes liquid level, battery level, possible failures or other information provided by the forklift).

  2. Moreover, the accelerometers included in the RFMS, the system can detect possible collisions of forklifts, as well as if some machine is powered on and not being used, thus powered it off remotely to save energy and resources.

  3. Special devices with IP65 protection, RFID reader and wireless connectivity are installed on each forklift. Drivers must login using RFID cards to use the forklifts.

  4. Real-time location feature enables customers to improve their productivity by studying the travel habits of each worker and forklift and optimise their daily work and use.

Reports and Analytics

  • The system generated reports fall in two categories:

    • Daily production / operations information.

    • Alerts / alarms.

  • The standard daily and weekly reports are sent to the management using email. There is also a provision to demand the reports from the web interface.

  • Alerts are usually sent by SMS or similar mechanism which would attract attention for quick corrective action.

  • Any statistically significant variation from the base line is raised as an alert so as to avoid breakdown and allow of timely preventive maintenance and repairs.

General information about the system

This system comprises of Edge sensors, Edge hardware device (electronics) with wireless communication, a cloud application, and an optional smart phone (Android) application. The sensors are placed on various parts of the forklifts such as wheels, so on. This collects information from various parts of the forklifts and brings it to the Edge hardware device.

Usually monitoring device is placed in the electrical panel. All the wires from sensors would be connected to this device.  The data collected in this device is sent periodically to the cloud server over wireless communication. You would have one such device for each forklift to be monitored.

The cloud server would collect data from several such hardware devices and display it in the browser, analyse it for long term pattern detection, and store it for future use.

The data can be accessed on demand from PC (using a browser) or smart phone (Android app). This makes the remote monitoring possible from any location as long as you have necessary login / password.

Other Features

The system is equipped with remote firmware upgrade. Thus, to upgrade the firmware with new features or bug fixes, you do not need to make a site visit. Instead it can be done from your office itself.

It has a small built-in battery which indicates tampering of the device such as removal of power, opening the box etc. This alert is sent to the server (within a few minutes) before the electronics loses power. This deters malicious tampering of the device.

In case of loss of GSM signal, the system stores the data locally. This data is then uploaded to the server once the connectivity with server is restored. Thus, even in case of loss of connectivity, there is no loss of data.

Lastly, since the hardware and software is designed and developed by VerveTronics, we can make changes, add features, and customize any of the software screens, sensors, and features. This gives a unique advantage to the user to get custom made system developed on top of a proven indigenous platform.
