Revolutionary wireless telematics

ChallengeKD were challenged to improve the utilisation and reduce the environmental impact of industrial machinery by developing an IoT sensor that could be installed in a matter of seconds.
Disciplines Design Design for Manufacture Manufacturing Support
New Launch! Successful product launch by Machine Max, February 2019.

Design Refinement

Machine Max wanted KD to create a statement design for the IoT sensor expressing both ruggedness and technological sophistication.

Vibration testing of pre-production prototype
Rigorous Development

Design for manufacture for a product operating in harsh environments. Extensive development testing (vibration, impact, water immersion and attachment strength).
