PT. Lacak Cipta Aktual (Lacak.io), an Indonesian Internet of Things (IoT) startup, is supporting the government's "100 Smart Cities Movement" by making it easy and cost-effective for Indonesian cities to adopt IoT across various sectors.
Lacak.io IoT Platform
The startup aims to accelerate the industry 4.0, by providing IoT applications to deliver increased productivity and efficiency in services such as mining, citizen engagement, and food security, albeit at lower costs and with faster onboarding processes.
Fariz Iskandar, Founder and CEO of Lacak.io, said, "IoT and other Industry 4.0 technologies must augment human work that is the lifeblood of cities, such as responsive emergency services and up-to-date communication with communities and businesses."
"At Lacak.oi, both our fleet and field service management solutions are easily translatable to industries where transportation and worker resource allocations are key, such as mining, plantations, and the public sector," he added.
Land access to rural areas has been the most critical issues in the mining sector. Connectivity issues as well as mining maps that are not up-to-date hinder effectiveness in operations. Lacak.io's Fleet Management System helps map optimal routes for deliveries with the aid of GPS-enabled sensors and geofencing. Fuel usage and loads are optimized with Lacak.io's fuel and axle load sensors that immediately send fleet information to headquarters.
"Data collected is automatically managed using Big Data, blockchain and cloud technologies towards improving scheduling and loading. Soon, we will no longer see long queues of overloaded mining trucks at ports or plants," Fariz said.
Field service management solution to enhance public service processes
Meaningful digitization initiatives are also applied to the government officials and public sector, such as utilizing Lacak.io's smart technology to help schedule public transport resources, while maximizing fuel usage.
