Continental presents SightIQ IoT suite for pits, mines and construction sites

At bauma 2022 in Munich this week, Continental is showcasing an IoT solution that will set new standards for the productivity management of quarries, mines and construction sites. “SightIQ can integrate virtually all data available to a manager from mobile machines, vehicles and stationary assets like conveyors or tools, regardless of make, model, year, manufacturer or asset location.” It combines asset management, process management and operator management in one system and offers data analytics tools and supports predictive maintenance.

“We are very proud to present a solution that is unparalleled as it gives managers everything that they need to know about all their assets’ health, productivity and location on a single pane of glass,” says Mario Branco, Head of Business Development Off-Highway at Continental. “We have launched SightIQ using the off-highway knowledge and competences across our many business areas to bring customers a solution that can be a fundamental step forward in increasing their profitability.”

More than just asset management, Continental says SightIQ turns data into operational intelligence. “SightIQ is already implemented with customers in the US and will be expanded to Europe in the second half of 2023. With SightIQ, construction and aggregate site operators eliminate the need to manually collect and analyse data from disparate sources and time-consuming production impact studies. In return, operators can focus on unearthing enhanced profits by leveraging SightIQ insights to avoid costly breakdowns and fine-tune site processes.”

For example, SightIQ-driven insights can identify unnecessary idle time, inefficient use of fuel, or non-optimal timing of maintenance across assets which is costly for heavy-duty fleets. “Even a 58-second longer cycle time can cost quarry fleets over $180,000 in lost productivity per day. Additionally, SightIQ meets the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, pulling asset data from all major yellow-iron OEMs into a singular unified view.”

  • SightIQ it says is scalable and fully flexible depending on customer requirements. At launch, it includes the following solutions with additional asset productivity and health offerings forthcoming:
  • SightIQ Predict – Collects diagnostic information and OEM data from all assets within a fleet at multiple work sites in one continuous data stream, providing predictive and preventative maintenance guidance with asset health scoring, which can easily be leveraged to improve asset uptime.
  • SightIQ Optimize – Connects previously manually captured production study data with telematics and OEM data streams from all fleet assets to help increase productivity by reducing the cost-per-tonne of aggregate while saving time and money with reporting on operator management, idle times, and fuel efficiency.

SightIQ can also be further expanded by Continental’s digital solutions, such as Conti+ for smart conveyor system management and ContiConnect, the tyre solution for safety and efficiency.

  • Continental’s belt, conveyor and process monitoring sensor systems and the respective services can be individually configured to form one complete package. Connected to Conti+, all critical conveyor data is always available, which paves the way to new business models and enables remote maintenance and operation
  • ContiConnect is the tire management system of Continental. It allows for continuous tyre pressure and temperature monitoring. The new 2.0 generation of ContiConnect also debuts at bauma. In addition to the possibility to live-monitor tire pressure and temperature, fleet managers now are enabled to conveniently manage all tyre assets within their fleet. ContiConnect 2.0 is also available via an app for iOS and Android, which can also be used to read out data from the newly developed ContiConnect tyre sensor
