Hiboo offers a monitoring solution for industrial assets for the construction and logistics industries (position, usage, shocks) but also for telemetry (temperature, power supply) in other areas such as the cold chain for example. The Hiboo solution is offered as a turnkey solution: sensor, platform, API and data processing.

The IoT in your home

We are developing in-house our connected object, the Hiboo Lapone 1.0. This object has been entirely designed and developed in France. Our production and assembly line is based in Brittany, the plastic of the box is injected in Loire Atlantique.

Your candidate project

We provide a global solution allowing manufacturers to exploit and interpret :

  • on the one hand, data from their already connected equipment (Volvo, Caterpillar, Bell, etc.): this data is rarely used by operational staff because of its heterogeneity and the multitude of platforms to be consulted
  • on the other hand, to collect information from assets without on-board power or that cannot be connected (panel, crane part, trailer, waste container, industrial refrigerator, etc.)

When aggregated, this data allows us to make better business decisions and improve our customers’ operating margins.
