Our partners

 

We offer the latest GPS technology platforms, developed using high-grade proven components from worldwide GPS and GSM module vendors: Telit, SierraWireless, Quectel. Using the best MCUs from such leading suppliers as STMicroelectronics, Nordic, Ambarella, and Qualcomm allows us to provide cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions for our clients.

 

How it works

A vehicle tracking system's easiest option is to implement a tracker that connects to the cloud through a smartphone. Despite such a system's low cost, it has disadvantages like inadequate security, weak hosting, a limited number of signals, and a fast battery drain. Therefore, many companies rely on more reliable systems.

The main parts of the trackers are MCU/CPU that read information from on-board equipment and sensors and GNSS and GSM modems, which determines the coordinates, and transmits the collected data via GSM/Iridium communication channels to servers. Most often, the end-user receives the server's data through mobile or web app. The main advantage of Iridium is providing network coverage worldwide.

Our clients turn to us for trackers development for various purposes, from GPS-control of vehicles movement and parameters of their operation to control of temperature and other parameters in containers during cargo transportation.

The use of GPS-trackers has several advantages, including reduction of 5-15% of vehicle mileage, an increase of efficiency and elimination of personal use of business transport, improvement of customer service quality, reduction of fuel consumption by 20-30%, tracking valuable luggage or cargo, and others.
