BROKK has announced the launch of an online platform for connected Brokk demolition robots.
Brokk Connect connects the robots to an online portal where users can track and manage their machines. As well as providing real-time data, it analyses information to help optimise machine utilisation. The solution includes both hardware and software that Brokk described as being ‘unique to meet the specific requirements of the operation and management of demolition robots’.
The Brokk Connect hardware is connected to the control unit and all the sensors on the machine. The software is designed to process and analyse the data from the robot. Users can locate and manage the entire robot fleet, get information of every activity, and receive alerts relating to any needs for attention or service requirement.
Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group, said, “Since Brokk Connect is a solution developed by Brokk, and not a standard system just added to the robot, it can be completely designed to create maximum value for Brokk owners. Whether the user’s focus is to improve machine utilisation and business operation or to maintain and monitor the machine health, the system supports that.”
Brokk Connect will initially be launched in Sweden, Switzerland and Italy. Later this year, it
will become available in the rest of Europe and North America, followed by the rest of
the world. It will be available for delivery on all new Brokk robots but can also be
retrofitted on older models.
