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.

Connectivity

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.

Expandable

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

In order to ensure the sustainability of the vehicles and their components, endurance testing is essential. Standardized procedures ensure development and testing for the highest demands.

Validation

Individual components can be tested for their functionality. By testing and validating the components, the vehicle becomes a durable overall system.

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.

Test drives

Obtaining data remotely from the vehicle in cold and hot temperatures from anywhere in the world. Even under extreme conditions.

Usage analysis

Especially in fleet management or test fleets, the issue of utilization for cost-efficient sizing arises.

Customer behavior

Data on customer usage, satisfaction & behavior can be collected. This allows simple costumer behavior analyses to be carried out and the feedback from end customers to be incorporated directly into new and further development.

Quality assurance

Ensuring a sustainably high quality standard and ensuring the maturity level of new developments.

PLC monitoring*

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