Where in the World is Your Fleet?
New Solar Tracker Helps Protect Mobile Assets and Save Money
Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego is a famous game since 1985 that went on to become a best-selling game franchise. The goal of the game was to track Carmen’s villains around the world and arrest them, later ultimately arresting Carmen herself.
Now, with a new tracking device that is designed to monitor and track powered and non-powered assets such as trailers and containers (not Carmens), Teletrac Navman, a global software-as-a-service provider, is leveraging location-based technology and services for managing a company’s mobile assets, regardless of the size of company.
Called the Solar Tracker, the device is an advanced GPS device that runs on solar power by day and long-lasting, durable batteries by night for around-the-clock coverage of mobile assets.
According to Andrew Rossington, chief product officer of Teletrac Navman, “The Solar Tracker functions as a key operational tool for the business, enabling fleet and asset managers to use the data accumulated by the device to manage a more accurate invoicing system, and to know what assets are available to be utilized for jobs, which can save businesses thousands of dollars annually.”
Rossington points out that one of the biggest challenges is protecting its vehicles and mobile assets, whether it’s a shipping company, a specialty service company like a manufacturer, or a government agency. “The Solar Tracker offers a simple and sensible solution by alerting the back office in real time whenever the asset is on the move,” he says.
The Solar Tracker is fully integrated with Teletrac Navman’s new AI-enabled platform, TN360, as well as the DIRECTOR platforms. With it, you can view all trailers, and non-powered assets simultaneously on the same system. The device is easy to install and rugged, IP67 rated and suitable for inclement weather.
“GPS and other data technologies provide functions that transcend the original intent of the device or technology,” adds Nick Jones, president of Teletrac Navman. “With advanced processing, artificial intelligence and – in this case – solar power, the sky is clearly the limit for the future of fleet and telematics.”
He adds that using sustainable energy like solar, the company takes great pride in providing practical innovations that not only help clients make smarter decisions but also empowers them to limit their carbon footprints.
