Brokk solution helps demolition robots stay connected

BROKK has announced the launch of Brokk Connect 2.0, described as the next step for the online platform for connected Brokk robots.

Brokk Connect was announced earlier this year and has been available in three pilot markets. With the release of Brokk Connect 2.0, it now becomes available all over Europe and North America.

The solution includes both hardware and software to help meet the requirements of the operation and management of demolition robots. Brokk explained that in order to provide the best coverage, the robots are connected over the mobile network.

Brokk Connect 2.0 delivers several new features including a geofencing functionality that helps owners keep control of their fleet and assist in case of theft or unauthorised use. It is also now possible to customise the online platform, and there is a new weekly status report to keep users up to date if anything needs attention.

Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group, said, “As we said when we announced Brokk Connect, it is a solution that we will continue to develop and expand. Brokk Connect 2.0 is now the next step, but it is definitely not the last. Connected machines and all their benefits are here to stay.”

Some of the benefits of Brokk Connect include access to real-time information about the location of the robot, the status, operational data, and any need for attention.

“The feedback from our customers who have tried Brokk Connect and signed up for a Brokk Uptime service contract during the pilot period, is that they could not imagine going back to machines without the system”, Martin Krupicka added.

Brokk Connect is available on all new Brokk robots but can also be retrofitted on older models.
