With the IoT Hotlist (Germany) 2018, LSP Digital presents for the first time its selection of particularly interesting companies and ideas from the Internet of Things.
While Statista offers processed information and content from a wide variety of economic and industrial sectors, LSP Digital concentrates exclusively on “Digital Business Building”. LSP Digital has been offering consulting services in the field of digital business development since 2004.
In order to be successful in this constantly evolving environment and to be able to implement customer ideas, LSP continuously explores the Internet of Things; however, the findings from these market observations are usually only shared with the clients.
IoT Hotlist Germany – 5 out of 200
This year the consultants publish the IoT Hotlist Germany for the first time. From a list of nearly 200 young IoT companies based in Germany, they selected five companies that have something special to offer.
The Munich-based startup Corrux, founded in 2018, specializes in increasing efficiency in the construction industry.
“Our customers are ‘late bloomers’ when it comes to networking and IoT; we ensure that the data collected is used and that business-critical insights are gained”. – Laura Tönnies (CEO Corrux)
The Munich-based company acquires targeted customers whose construction machines are already collecting data – this makes it possible to implement a “proof of concept” without having to set foot on the construction site:
“We can concretely demonstrate the benefits of our solution already in the sales process when we analyze historical customer data“. – Laura Tönnies
AnyLedger, the startup of the physicist Lorenzo Pieri, wants to establish a (micro)payment or wallet system on the ARM architecture with which IoT systems can independently execute and/or confirm transactions.
“Our central innovation is the ’embedded wallet’: the safest and lightest solution to connect a device to the blockchain“. – Lorenzo Pieri (Founder)
AnyLedger cites an example from the energy supply industry as a practical application example. Solar farms should be able to certify and process purchases or sales of electricity without human intervention.
The Dortmund-based Innogy (RWE) subsidiary Lemonbeat, founded in 2015, is currently primarily involved in the areas of building management and smart metering. For example, the technology from Dortmund is used in all new “smart meters” of the energy provider enviaM.
“Lemonbeat provides a complete “IoT backbone” from the microcontroller to the cloud as a licensable product. We go deep into the technical details, for example with our own patented communication standards LB Radio and LB LoRa and Lemonbeat OS, in order to achieve optimal results“. – Oliver van der Mond (CEO, Co-Founder)
But Lemonbeat also equips renowned product manufacturers and suppliers such as Gardena with the necessary IoT know-how and hardware to enable their devices to interact independently with each other on the Internet of Things.
“We help device and system manufacturers get started with the IoT: from the first hardware development kit to industrial production in the same environment”. – Oliver van der Mond
The joint venture between ABB, Bosch and Cisco, founded in 2016, has reoriented itself this year and transformed itself from a product provider for the smart home to a B2B platform.
Following the example of IFTTT, Mozaiq wants to enable the linking of apps and IoT devices from different manufacturers and publishers so that they can implement joint projects and optimize the life cycles of their hardware, software and service offerings.
“We help our customers identify the right B2B partnerships on the Internet of Things and implement joint projects. More than 130 partners are already available on the mozaiq market, which can be independently linked to complex logics in the Use Case Designer“. – Daniel Rehberger (Strategy & Business Development mozaiq)
With its industrial Smartwatch, the Munich-based newcomer Workerbase aims to optimize human-machine interaction. The Workerbase watch, based on the model of Fitbits, step counters and conventional Smartwatches, is designed to offer functions similar to those of the ProGlove; for example, an increase in efficiency through assistance and optimization in manual activities.
“The additional effect of using Workerbase is massive transparency. For example, the Smartwatch can be used to quickly and easily record the reasons for disruptions in OEE analysis. Process mining can often increase significant efficiencies that were not visible before use. We deliberately do not collect biometric data about the users“. – Thorsten Krüger (Co-Founder)
Connections to common IoT platforms should also enable trouble-free integration into existing systems.
