TRACK provides enhanced vehicle positioning in the most challenging environments by using low cost inertial MEMS sensors and GNSS. The inertial core of accelerometers and gyroscopes continuously tracks the relative movement of the vehicle and uses GNSS information as absolute updates when available. In tunnels, parking structures or other areas where GNSS becomes unreliable like downtown centers, the inertial core filters out erroneous data and provides reliable positioning without GNSS. Calibration and misalignment to the vehicle is all done automatically through typical driving motion without need of expensive factory calibrations.
GNSS and IMU’s provide the required inputs for TRACK to operate. Optional inputs such as vehicle speed, pressure sensors and maps, can improve the accuracy of the solution. TRACK is always outputting continuous 3D positions, 3D velocities, roll/pitch/heading and driving dynamics.
TRACK’s services both pre-market and after-market automotive. This includes fleet tracking, navigation head units, telematics, vehicle AR/VR and other vehicle applications that require best positioning accuracy at an affordable cost. TRACK is currently shipping commercially in more than 50 million devices.
Why Our Customers Choose TRACK
Control & Optimize Your System Design
TRACK is a hardware agnostic software solution that allows customers to use the GNSS receiver and sensors of their choice. Customers can add their own improvements or IP to differentiate themselves from the competition. Customers may also choose TRACK as a software upgrade to their existing vehicle platforms that contain GNSS and sensors.
TRACK is offered separate from the GNSS, IMU or processor. This configurable system provides the best accuracy, at a competitive price, while allowing the system integrator to optimize or customize to their specific vehicle platform.
TRACK is now offered as a pay per use license service model. This new licensing model allows customers to pay for licenses as they are needed to avoid upfront capital costs. This accommodates seasonal or other time-based usage fluctuations. Companies using fleet tracking can benefit from this pay-per-use license model as it is easily transferrable between vehicles, provided they are connected to the cloud. This function is particularly useful in times where one vehicle may be down for maintenance, while another vehicle has been recommissioned for use. Seasonality may also affect usage as more vehicles may be deployed at different times of the year. This new model generates cost savings during periods of low usage while enabling companies to scale their use as their business requirements grow.
Easy to Integrate, Update and Transfer
TRACK can easily be integrated into existing systems, updated and transferred between different vehicles. This functionality makes installation and software updates seamless and instantaneous across vehicles.
Licenses can also be added or removed at any time to adjust to demand changes or business growth.
