SightIQ from Continental for Building Site Efficiency

SightIQ has already been implemented with customers in the U.S. and will be expanded to Europe in the second half of 2023. With SightIQ, construction and aggregate site operators eliminate the need to manually collect and analyse data from disparate sources and time-consuming production impact studies. In return, operators can focus on unearthing enhanced profits by leveraging SightIQ insights to avoid costly breakdowns and fine-tune site processes.

Continental’s SightIQ Aims to Improve Productivity

For example, SightIQ-driven insights can identify unnecessary idle time, inefficient use of fuel, or non-optimal timing of maintenance across assets which is considerably costly for heavy-duty fleets. Even a 58-second longer cycle time can cost quarry fleets over $180,000 in lost productivity per day. Additionally, SightIQ meets the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, pulling asset data from all major yellow-iron OEMs into a singular unified view.

Continental’s operational intelligence centre SightIQ is scalable and fully flexible depending on customer requirements. At launch, it includes the following solutions with additional asset productivity and health offerings forthcoming:

  • SightIQ Predict – Collects diagnostic information and OEM data from all assets within a fleet at multiple work sites in one continuous data stream, providing predictive and preventative maintenance guidance with asset health scoring, which can easily be leveraged to improve asset uptime.

  • SightIQ Optimize – Connects previously manually captured production study data with telematics and OEM data streams from all fleet assets to help increase productivity by reducing the cost-per-ton of aggregate while saving time and money with reporting on operator management, idle times, and fuel efficiency.

Continental’s digital solutions can further expand SightIQ, e.g., Conti+ for smart conveyor system management and ContiConnect, the tyre solution for safety and efficiency.

  • Continental’s belt, conveyor and process monitoring sensor systems and the respective services can be individually configured to form one complete package. And connected to Conti+, all critical conveyor data is always available, which paves the way to new business models and enables remote maintenance and operation.

  • ContiConnect is the tyre management system of Continental. It allows for continuous tyre pressure and temperature monitoring. The new 2.0 generation of ContiConnect was also launched at Bauma 2022. In addition to the possibility of live-monitoring tyre pressure and temperature, fleet managers are now able to conveniently manage all tyre assets within their fleet. ContiConnect 2.0 is also available via an app for iOS and Android, which can also be used to read out data from the newly developed ContiConnect tyre sensor.
