Cinterion and DCT announce deployment of M2M fleet tracking device

Cinterion (Munich, Germany), a supplier of machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, and Digital Communications Technologies (DCT) (Miami, Fla., U.S.A.), a manufacturer of wireless communications hardware, on Thursday announced early deployments of a new intelligent tracking, tracing, and reporting device designed for the fleet management and stolen vehicle recovery.

The Syrus GPS device combines Cinterion-powered cellular communications with built-in GPS for tracking capabilities, according to Cinterion. It features theft recovery tools plus a fully integrated 3-axis accelerometer to detect and help manage driving behavior. Cinterion’s EGS5 JavaTM module is compatible with almost any end-user platform and enables customizable prompts and reporting as well as over-the-air software updates says the company.

Early implementers have reported the following mission critical benefits:

Carrotech (Stellenbosch, South Africa), a company that tracks technology for agricultural equipment, uses Syrus GPS throughout the UK. The movement sensor and ‘panic button’ features aim to improve drivers’ sense of safety on the road while allowing implementers to bolster their theft-prevention capabilities, according to Cinterion.

Ride Systems, a custom GPS tracking company, uses the Syrus GPS tracking device for customer support according to Cinterion. The new design has dual internal antennas, which makes it easy to set up and deploy.

GPS Web Tracking (Pinecrest Fla., U.S.A.), a provider of GPS related products and services, also began offering its customers the DCT Syrus solution says Cinterion.
