Summary of Innovation

With 4SIGHT Connect Data, end users can: • Integrate dock operations into different systems. • Gain more accurate operational insight and the ability to tailor data to fit individual needs. • Leverage existing technologies for required connectivity to either a Kelley or Serco Digital Master Control Panel (which serves as the dock data collection point for equipment status and operation). • Create custom reports and dashboards, along with KPI’s and metrics. Using 4SIGHT Connect Data, event-based dock operation data points — such as trailer presence status at a specific dock door or the status of a dock door itself — are sent to the end-user in real-time via MQTT broker (open source ISO standard protocol). 4SIGHT Connect Data then delivers the actual data as a JSON payload for each defined event. Dock operation end users also have the option to collect meta data about the docks via RESTful API calls.
