Your benefits

Benefit from our well-established system in a range of areas.

Complete end-to-end system

The Flea 4+ is embedded in an integrated end-to-end system consisting of the end device in the vehicle and the Cloud-Service in the backend.

Everything via remote

The system can be used and managed completely remotely. Configurations, operations, results, new software, new drivers, security updates - 100% possible from your desk at a distance.

Over the air

New compact services and algorithms can be developed and distributed remotely. This keeps the overall system up-to-date and attractive over time.


Our system is compatible with common cloud computing platforms:
- Calponia (Bosch GmbH)
- Bosch IoT insights
- Microsoft Azure
- Customer Backend

Versatile & flexible

Whether in the vehicle, in the lab, or on the test track/road, logging and diagnostics are highly configurable.


Extensions or even complete developments can be carried out on the customer's demand. The hardware allows retrofitting by means of extension boards (FlexRay, PLC) allowing a subsequent adaptation to hardware requirements.

Easy to manage

Everything easily managed via device management, monitoring, reporting and over-the-air update.

Form factor & installation

The Flea 4+ stands out with its compact size - it offers the greatest functionality in the most compact of spaces. This makes it easy to install in the vehicle, practically plug & play.

Cost efficiency

The unit costs and thus the investments are low and payable via a term contract in actual use. This lowers your barrier to entry and costs only as long as you actually benefit.

Ideal solutions

As a leading manufacturer of high-performance data loggers we have been working closely for over 15 years with renowned companies in the automotive industry in the field of innovative mobility concepts. Our services range from individual hardware and software solutions to an internationally active customer service and the development of test environments.

Use Cases

Sporadic error identification

The occurrence of sporadic errors can be a major problem, especially when new models are introduced. A smart configuration can detect these and record them together with the correlating context.

Endurance run

Testing in the vehicle endurance run. Development and testing: to meet the highest demands. Obtaining vehicle data remotely from the vehicle from anywhere in the world.

Quality assurance

Testing and ensuring the functionality is as specified, from the individual component to the overall system. Acquiring vehicle data intelligently and making it available enables continuous and sustainable assurance of its level of maturity.

Live Data

Live data is indispensable in the transformation of the automobile into a digital entity. Through free configuration, you decide which vehicle data is streamed. In combination with streaming from the cloud, computationally intensive and latency-sensitive functions can be outsourced.

Customer behavior

Data on customer usage, satisfaction & behavior can be collected. Information on the use of features can be collected and its subsequent evaluation can lead to insights for further and new developments.

PLC monitoring

Logging of charging communication to test interoperability between EV vehicle and charging point.
