    Firmware Smarts

    Auto-APN

    Auto-APN allows the G60 to analyse the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware. This means that the G60 can be shipped world-wide without requiring specialist setup for SIMs.

    Text Message Setup

    The G60 can also be sent text messages to setup the APN, server and other details

    Multi-APN

    The G60 can be configured to roam across multiple networks and to automatically use the different APN details for the roaming networks.

    AssistNow Offline

    The G60 will track successfully where other devices just give up.

    This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.

    Flexible Logging Parameters

    The G60 trip logging is flexible and can be configured to log based on a variety of parameters including:

    • Elapsed time
    • Distance travelled
    • Change in heading
    • Change in speed
    • On Stationary
    • Accelerometer events (harsh driving)

    Accident and Rollover Detection

    The G60 uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and rollovers and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.

    Harsh Driving

    The G60 automatically calibrates its built-in 3 axis accelerometer and uses this to detect harsh driving events:

    • Excessive acceleration
    • Harsh braking
    • Cornering at speed

    These events are logged in the G60 along with additional event statistics that allow back-end server platforms to perform sophisticated driver profiling and scoring.

    Accident Data

    The G60 keeps a second-by-second “black box” recording of valuable GPS and accelerometer data for a two hour window. This data can be automatically uploaded to the server when an accident is detected, or it can be requested manually.

    Driver Identification

    The G60 supports a number of ways to identify a driver:

    • RFID reader and a card or keyfob
    • 5 digit keypad to enter a PIN code
    • Console with built-in RFID reader
    • iButton 1-wire reader

    Driver Lists

    The G60 can be updated from the server with lists of Drivers that are allowed to drive the vehicle that it is installed in. When a driver or operator registers on the G60 it will check the Driver List to see if that person is authorised to drive the vehicle. The list also includes information about the driver such as whether they can perform supervisor functions.

    The G60 can be installed to immobilise a vehicle and only allow authorised drivers / operators to drive it, or to annoy an unauthorised driver with a loud buzzer.

    Emulated Ignition

    This setting allows the G60 to determine that a trip has started based on accelerometer and GPS data and to automatically set the ‘ignition’ input on the device to emulate the ignition line.

    This means that the G60 can be installed with the option of not wiring in the ignition line and ‘emulating’ the ignition based on movement.

    Run Detect

    This setting allows the G60 to monitor the system voltage and to detect changes in the voltage that indicate if the engine is running or not.

    Hardware Features

    Low-profile IP67 rugged housing

    The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and to survive many years in the sun and weather.

    It is low-profile making it easier to mount in the corrugation on containers or concealed on the underside of a trailer – for example.

    The housing screws together for easy assembly, and has 2 convenient mounting tabs. It also has ‘strap slots’ allowing the Remora to be cable tied or metal strapped to an asset.

    Dimensions: 225mm x 65mm x 30mm
    Weight: 500 grams with batteries

    Batteries

    C-Cell size

    The Remora uses standard “C-Cell” size batteries which provide a perfect balance between size and capacity

    Alkaline

    Low cost off-the-shelf alkaline batteries can be used in the Remora

    Extended

    LTC

    For applications that require extreme temperature or extra long-life Lithium-Thionyl-Chloride (LTC) batteries can be used

    Sleep Current

    5uA (yes, that is micro-amps)

     

    Battery Life with Adaptive-Tracking

    The Remora can be set to use Adaptive-Tracking technology where the accelerometer and GPS data are used to intelligently work out if it is moving and to send frequent / live updates, and to scale the update rate down to once per day if the asset is stationary - in order to preserve battery life.

    5 years @ one position per day

    Typically 2 to 5 years with Adaptive-Tracking

     

    Operating Temperature

    -40°C to +85°C 1

    For extreme low temperatures the Remora must be fitted with LTC batteries.

    High sensitivity GPS

    UBLOX MAX8 GPS module

    Supports concurrent GPS and GLONASS
    72 channel high sensitivity receiver
    -167dBm industry leading tracking performance
    Optimal hot-start performance
    AssistNow Offline aiding data for extremely fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments

    GLONASS

    The Remora uses both the GPS and GLONASS positioning systems simultaneously.

    This allows the device to use twice the number of satellites to get a position fix – making it faster and more accurate.

    Low noise GPS amplifier

    GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA)
    This allows the Remora to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal – like in a container stack!

    2G or 3G (NextG) with roaming

    The Remora can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks, and can roam across networks

    Internal Antennae

    Internal GPS and cellular antennae tuned by the RF laboratories to ensure optimal performance.

    3 axis accelerometer

    The 3 axis accelerometer allows the Remora to ‘sleep’ in an ultra-low power state yet still wakeup when movement occurs.

    The accelerometer can also be used to detect extreme G-Force events such as an accident or abuse of the asset, for example dropping a container.

    Magnetic Tamper Detect

     

    Flash memory

    The Remora has sufficient memory to store over 50,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many months!

    The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, geo-fences and other important information that needs to be securely stored.

    The Remora is a stand-alone tracking unit and therefore does not have peripherals available.

    Firmware Smarts

    Recovery Mode

    The Remora can be remotely switched into Recovery Mode which switches the device to do live tracking and reporting – so that you can get your asset back!

    Auto-APN

    Auto-APN allows the Remora to analyse the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware. This means that the Remora can be shipped world-wide without requiring specialist setup for SIMs.

    Text Message Setup

    The Remora can also be sent text messages to setup the APN, server and other details

    Multi-APN for Roaming

    The Remora can be configured to roam across multiple networks and to automatically use the different APN details for the roaming networks.

    AssistNow Offline

    The Remora will track successfully where other devices just give up.

    This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.

    G-Force Events

    The Remora uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and drops and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.

    Geo-Fences

    The Remora has the capacity to hold hundreds of geo-fences that can be downloaded to it from the server and updated Over-The-Air. The Remora can use this geo-fence information to:

    · Implement arrival and departure alerts

    · Implement “No-go” and “Keep-out” areas

    · Disable data communications within intrinsically safe areas

    · Reduce power by not trying to communicate when out of range, for example on a ship at sea where there is no cellular communications

    This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.

    Flexible Logging Parameters

    The Dart trip logging is flexible and can be configured to log based on a variety of parameters including:

    • Elapsed time
    • Distance travelled
    • Change in heading
    • Change in speed
    • On Stationary
    • Accelerometer events (harsh driving)

    Accident and Rollover Detection

    The Dart uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and rollovers and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.

    Harsh Driving

    The Dart automatically calibrates its built-in 3 axis accelerometer and uses this to detect harsh driving events:

    • Excessive acceleration
    • Harsh braking
    • Cornering at speed

    These events are logged in the Dart along with additional event statistics that allow back-end server platforms to perform sophisticated driver profiling and scoring.

    Accident Data

    The Dart keeps a second-by-second “black box” recording of valuable GPS and accelerometer data for a two hour window. This data can be automatically uploaded to the server when an accident is detected, or it can be requested manually.

    Driver Identification

    The Dart supports a low-cost external RFID reader to read cards and keyfobs in order to identify drivers

    Driver Lists

    The Dart can be updated from the server with lists of Drivers that are allowed to drive the vehicle that it is installed in. When a driver or operator registers on the Dart it will check the Driver List to see if that person is authorised to drive the vehicle. The list also includes information about the driver such as whether they can perform supervisor functions.

    The Dart can be installed to immobilise a vehicle and only allow authorised drivers / operators to drive it, or to annoy an unauthorised driver with a loud buzzer.

    Geo-Fences

    The Dart has the capacity to hold hundreds of geo-fences that can be downloaded to it from the server. The Dart can use this geo-fence information to:

    • Implement arrival and departure alerts

    G52S Firmware Features

    Agriculture or Tracking Firmware

    The G52S has two distinct applications that require different firmware: Agricultural Telematics and GPS Tracking. The hardware is identical for both applications, and the firmware can be switched over the air. This following sections describe features of the firmware that apply to Agricultural Telematics, GPS Tracking, and both versions.

    General Features

    The following features are available in both Agricultural and GPS tracking firmware versions.

    General Firmware Smarts

    Auto-APN

    Auto-APN allows the G52S to analyse the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware. This means that the G52S can be shipped world-wide without requiring specialist setup for SIMs.

    Text Message Setup

    The G52S can also be sent text messages to setup the APN, server and other details

    Multi-APN

    The G52S can be configured to roam across multiple networks and to automatically use the different APN details for the roaming networks.

    AssistNow Offline

    The G52S will track successfully where other devices just give up.

    This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.

    Deep power down

    The G52S will enter an extremely low power state when the battery is low (below 3.5V). This maximises the potential for the battery to be charged by the solar panel. The device will do a low power wake-up every hour to check the battery status. If the battery is charged sufficiently (above 3.5V), the device will do a full wakeup and continue with normal operation

    Power bands

    The G52S must work in power constrained environment. The firmware has built in power bands to adjust the behaviour according to how much power is available. The battery capacity is divided into thirds. Different behaviour can be assigned to each third. This provides a flexible setup that maximises the usefulness under different power conditions. See the user manual for more information.

    Battery protection

    The Li-Po battery is sensitive to overcharging and charging out of the temperature specification. The charge rate is very low (1/16C). The device employs a shunt strategy to divert energy away from the battery when the battery should not be charged.

    G52S devices have been operating successfully in harsh environments for over two years.

    GPS Tracking Firmware Smarts

    Emulated Ignition

    Emulated Ignition allows the G52S to determine that a trip has started based on accelerometer and GPS data and to automatically set the ‘ignition’ input on the device to emulate the ignition line.

    This means that the G52S can be installed with the option of not wiring in the ignition line and ‘emulating’ the ignition based on movement.

    Trips are started using a configurable distance and speed threshold. Trips are ended using a configurable stationary period.

    Assumed Start Point

    Once an emulated ignition (movement) trip has started, the device will calculate a sensible start point. This give more accurate trip reproduction.

    Wired Ignition

    Use the ignition wire to start and stop trips. Accurately monitor engine run hours this way.

    Run Detect

    This setting allows the G52S to monitor the system voltage and to detect changes in the voltage that indicate if the engine is running or not.

    In Trip Time Based Logging

    Once the device has determined that a trip has started, GPS logging is done on a configurable time period. The period is configurable in each power band.

    Periodic Only Logging

    The device can be configured to ignore trips and only log on a periodic basis. For example, use this to get a GPS point every hour, regardless of movement.

    Accident Detection

    The G52S uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and rollovers and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.

     

    Agricultural Firmware Smarts

    SDI-12 interface

    Connect SDI-12 sensors using the 5V output, input 1, and ground connections.

    Connect up to 10 sensors with unique configurable addresses.

    SDI-12 interface is 3.3V compatible.

    Rain gauge

    Connect a tipping rain gauge to the ignition input. The ignition input is configurable to pull up internally.

    Sensor timing

    Configure the G52S to take readings at set intervals, aligned with the hour. For example, by default it will take SDI-12 readings every 15 min, starting on the hour.

    Upload timing

    Schedule uploads to suit the latency or data bill. Data is stored in the flash until it is uploaded.

    GPS fix timing

    Schedule GPS fixes as required. The default setting updates the device position once per day.

    Telemetry

    Understand the status of the G52S with the following recorded data: battery level, external power, temperature, GSM signal strength, and solar panel input voltage
