MOBOTIX meets evolving industrial market requirements


Share this content


The new open and modular video system platform, MOBOTIX 7 fundamentally changes the use of video surveillance and video analysis. With its product portfolio of hardware, software and intelligent partner solutions, MOBOTIX can precisely map the current and even future requirements of various industries. One of the main areas of focus is the industrial and production sector.

With MOBOTIX 7, MOBOTIX is completing its product and solution portfolio to meet all requirements in the industrial and production sector. The MOBOTIX MOVE models, the proven Mx6 and the new MOBOTIX 7 series cover all current and even future market requirements. From the high-quality standard camera to the AI-based, high-end IoT video system developed for innovative and future applications: Robust, reliable, secure – Beyond Human Vision.

Safety and efficiency in industry & production

Burglary, unauthorised entry into danger zones, fire and accidents are the main risks for companies in manufacturing and industry. It is essential to prevent economic and especially personal injury. For example, smoke and flames on vehicles, machines or containers can be detected early on.  For this purpose, state-of-the-art video analysis methods are “latched” directly into the camera firmware in the form of specialised apps. MOBOTIX also offers efficient options for reliably monitoring sensitive indoor and outdoor areas. For example, eye-tracking video analysis can save lives in an emergency, because it ensures that employees working in hazardous areas always have the necessary attention during the production process. An inattention detected by the video system leads to an automatic stop of machines.

Much more than safety

With modern video surveillance and analysis, companies are increasingly able to optimise processes. For example, intelligent MOBOTIX systems can help reduce machine downtime, which makes a decisive contribution to more effective production. The fact that the cameras are maintenance-free is a big plus for company budgets.

Industrial and manufacturing companies benefit from numerous special video analysis apps that are already available today and will be available in the near future.

“Together with our partners, we are continuously developing intelligent industry solutions that meet the needs of the users. Supported by Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, our video systems can be tailored exactly to the needs of our customers. In this way, they meet the specific and individual challenges of our customers in industry and production,” explains Hartmut Sprave, CTO of MOBOTIX AG.

Ready for use even under extreme conditions

In industrial and production plants, extreme environmental conditions prevail in some cases. Temperature fluctuations, dust, humidity – the robust video systems “Made in Germany” defy even difficult external influences and are among the most reliable in the industry.

The “Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF)” of most MOBOTIX cameras, for example, has an average service life of 80,000 hours (> nine years). For indoor and outdoor installation, no additional protective housing or air conditioning measures are required. The highly sensitive optics, thermal sensors, infrared illuminators or even the intelligent apps master the most difficult optical conditions, such as darkness, steam, smoke and fog.

Focus on data security and data protection

Edge computing is an elementary component of MOBOTIX DNA. MOBOTIX cameras are high-performance computers with eyes. The entire video analysis – and optionally also the recording – takes place in the camera. With brilliant image quality, in real time and intelligently self-organised. The autonomous IoT cameras transmit images – securely end-to-end encrypted according to the highest standards – into the network only when relevant events occur. Transmitting less data also means that there are fewer opportunities for cyber attacks. Edge computing eliminates the need for central video servers and recording devices.


MOBOTIX only uses high-performance, high-quality electronic components. This principle is consistently applied throughout the digital world. Cybersecurity enjoys the highest priority at MOBOTIX and is lived intensively through the MOBOTIX Cactus Concept. For example, MOBOTIX is certified for best cybersecurity by the internationally renowned French testing institute CNPP (Centre National de Prévention et de Protection) – the first European manufacturer to do so. Data security with regard to the DSGVO is also elementary for MOBOTIX. Both access rights and camera settings can be adjusted sensitively and according to the application.

“MOBOTIX thus offers industrial and manufacturing companies a complete product range that covers all needs and requirements in industry and production as a complete solution. Together with our partners and end customers, we develop customised systems from our entire product and solution portfolio that optimally meet the industry- and company-specific challenges,” says MOBOTIX CEO, Thomas Lausten.
