Cloud Cycle - CloudBox

The Cloud Cycle System

The Cloud Cycle system has been developed to bring the most relevant insights directly to the user’s attention. We use the latest technology available, a combination of powerful hardware and the best data science techniques.

Concrete Digitised

For too long the concrete and construction industry has relied on manual methods to ensure quality. Cloud Cycle digitises these methods whilst reporting the results in standard units, offering consistent and repeatable data to our customers.

Data and analytics dashboard

The data approach

Cloud Cycle has a strong data focus. From collecting the most rigorous reference measurements to displaying the most relevant insights to our customers. But, most importantly, building a cutting edge data handling platform that allows our scientists to get the most from our data set. This has led to the development of unique data processing technologies that are specific to the construction industry.

The future is in new data insights

Creating a new data-rich platform using new sensors is one of the best ways in which the construction industry can future proof their business. Cloud Cycle is not only working on generating the new dataset that will drive future efficiency, but also creating the data analytics platform that will transform the industry, from manual to digital.

Operational Improvements

The Cloud Cycle system provides transparency for operations, allowing concrete suppliers to assess the performance of batch plants, trucks, and job sites.

Quality Assurance

Gain unprecedented control over the quality of your ready-mix concrete with real-time monitoring of concrete characteristics from order to delivery.

Avoid Waste

Our machine learning algorithm provides deep insight into concrete quality allowing concrete batchers to make informed decisions about their deliveries.

Reach ESG Targets

Through quality assurance and waste control, the Cloud Cycle system helps concrete suppliers reduce their CO₂ emissions and meet their ESG commitments.

The Cloud Box

The Cloud Box is a highly capable computing platform with a set of interfaces designed to maximise compatibility with current and future ready-mix concrete trucks. Based around a Quad ARM A53 processor at 1.6 GHz and including a vector processing unit, it is capable of running sophisticated machine learning algorithms at the edge. A built in CatM1 modem ensures future proof global communications with a single hardware design and the Cloud Box is built to meet automotive standards in vibration, temperature, water-proofing and EMC. Easy to deploy with a standard wiring harness and configurable remotely, the Cloud Box provides a flexible platform able to perform a large range of functions.
