Smart GPS Tracking

Smart Tracking refers to the technologies utilized to track the locations of kids, pets, vehicles, or physical assets.

Industry Trend

Smart Tracking finds applications in locating people/animals, vehicles, and physical assets on the move in real time. Trackers for kids become appealing to parents looking for peace of mind. For vehicles, the smart tracking can capture data from telematics devices, sensors, cameras and mobile apps and turn this into business insights that are accessible in real-time on customizable dashboards, alerts and reports. Asset tracking, also known as asset management, typically uses tags for packages in transit on a truck, rail freight, or car. More valuable the asset is, more important the asset tracking is.
Xingtera offers complete solutions for various tracking applications. The advent of different tracking  technologies have powered Xingtera tracking solutions to realize easy tracking capabilities. Those technologies include GPS, WiFi, RFID, Beacons, NFC and QR Code.  The scope of addressed market and applications is huge and broad. All the solutions are turkey based, with fully integrated HW devices,  PAS/SAS platform, and mobile App. Our GPS based tracking solution includes the GPS tags, PAS/SAS platform, and mobile App, typically applied in CAT-M1 or NB-IoT networks and offers a n great number of tracking applications.

What are Challenges in GPS Tracking

The challenges encountered by the GPS tracking vary with the applications. However, some of them are common.

Battery Management

Batteries used by the GPS trackers need to be lightweight and last for hours, preferably for days. The application determines how often GPS needs to be turned on. The lightweight trackers usually mean low battery capacities. How to manage the batteries that are low in capacity and demand long operating time is a challenge for the trackers.

GPS Limitation

GPS relies on unobstructed view from a tracker to the sky (GPS satellite). Kids, pets, vehicles, or moving assets are unavoidably obstructed by various objects. A kid could walk inside a building. A dog could hide behind bushes. A car could be inside a parking lot. A moving asset could be inside a tunnel.

Cellular Coverage

Tracking devices are typically dependent upon cellular technology (LTE, 2G, CAT-M, NB-IoT, etc.). Anyone who has ever experienced a dropped call or traveled through an area without cellular coverage understands the frustration of poor cellular service. In addition, LTE may not be available everywhere, particularly in the remote area.

Solution Overview

Xingtera's Smart GPS Tracking solution consists of intelligent trackers, cloud service, and mobile app. For kids, Xingtera will provide lightweight, easy-to-attach but hard-to-lose trackers. For pets, the trackers are integrated into the pet collars. For vehicles and assets, magnets are used for easy attachment. The cloud service and mobile app use the unified software stack for those applications.
