Simplify IoT Deployment for Your Fleet

IoT use case - Simplify IoT Deployment for Your Fleet - high-level overview

Simplify your IoT deployment, get your fleets up and running faster. Connect them with sensors and deliver critical data to plan your operations properly. To deliver this data – which your fleet management system will require in real time – vehicles must connect remotely using the IoT cellular modules.

When you improve the fleet ecosystem via connected objects, you can count on the following outcomes:

  • Environmental benefits of a zero-emissions operation
  • Regenerative braking of fleets during constant stops and starts
  • Delivery of predetermined routes 
  • The largest and the safest fleet on the road 
  • Semi fleets with a continuous internet connection

Each sensor will be able to transmit the data via narrowband or 3G/LTE SIM cards, controlled and monitored by you. Infobip will provide adequate connections, control, and management for these cards. 

This use case will show how to use the Internet of Things service in combination with basic Infobip notification capabilities.

IMPLEMENTATION STEPS

Steps over API

1. Use the automated ordering process over API or contact your Account Manager to order a desired number of SIMs in a specified format, set the data limits, and specify the order delivery address. 

2. Activate the SIM card via the Activation IoT API. Request example:

PUT /iot/2/sims/8981100022152967721/status 

{  "status": "Active/Suspended"}  

Response example:

200 OK  

{      "actionId": "f597d319-de5c-4524-9378-e95478b58dad"} 

3. Insert SIM card in the device and start using it.

4. Check the data usage for the SIM card for the current month. Receive an alert that the monthly data usage limit has been reached.

Request example:

GET /iot/2/sims/8981100022152967721/usage 

Response example:

{ 
    "iccid": "8981100022152967721",
     "receivedSmsCount": null,
     "sentSmsCount": null,
     "usedDataBytes": 27199488,
     "receivedCallsCount": null, 
    "sentCallsCount": null
}

5. Analyze the data sent to the server. If the truck with the package has been delayed at the border for a specific amount of time, trigger an end-user notification about this delay.

6. Use the Infobip SMS API to notify the end customer that they will soon receive the package (because the truck is approaching the predefined location). To do so, your system needs to track the available data it receives from the device, analyze the data, and trigger action with an event. Request example:

POST /iot/1/sims/8981100022152967721/sms  

{  "text": "This is an example of SMS message text."}  

Response example:

200 OK
