Switzerland: The developer of IoT solutions notes that the Scope AI app accumulates data from the company’s Globehopper and Edge telematic sensors.

The former are installed on freight cars in Europe, Asia and North America, and the latter are placed on containers. Nexxiot also says that the application can work with data from third-party sensors and software.

The requests are assumed to be submitted in a free form. Then system’s self-learning algorithms select data and provide it in the form of graphs, maps, etc. For example, a user can request information about the current location of freight cars/containers, a specific number of empty cars in a specific location and so on.

Nexxiot previously stated that more than 25% of the freight car fleet (about 125,000) in Europe is already equipped with their sensors. In May, it was announced that Ermewa, a major European leasing company, would install Nexxiot sensors on 45,000 railcars more. Nexxiot’s telematics is actively being implemented in the USA. The CSX and TTX transport companies install it on their fleet of freight cars. Also, Nexxiot was chosen as one of the vendor partners in the national rail telematics project RailPulse. Knorr-Bremse acquired a stake in Nexxiot in 2022 and announced plans to invest €60 mln in company’s development.
