Brazil­ian com­pany launches track­ing de­vice

Power Watch India - - DISPATCHES NATIONAL -

Re­com­inte, a leader in the aero­nau­tic in­dus­try, re­cently an­nounced that Telit Wire­less So­lu­tions, a leading global ven­dor of ma­chine-to-ma­chine (M2M) mod­ules, value-added ser­vices and so­lu­tions, is the M2M mod­ule sup­plier for the Tracer Tag, a high-tech por­ta­ble track­ing de­vice. Re­com­inte’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary so­lu­tion is ca­pa­ble of track­ing lug­gage both on the ground and in tran­sit, it is in­formed.

The Tracer Tag ad­dresses a grow­ing is­sue for air­lines and their pas­sen­gers. Last year, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by SITA, the num­ber of mis­han­dled bags per 1,000 pas­sen­gers was 6.96 -- or 21.8 mil­lion mis­han­dled bags world­wide in 2013. De­layed and lost lug­gage cost the in­dus­try more than US$2 bil­lion last year alone. De­spite sev­eral im­prove­ments, pas­sen­gers with at least one con­nec­tion are the most likely to ar­rive with­out their bag. Al­most half of all de­layed or lost bags come from trans­fer flights. Un­til now, the use of track­ing de­vices to tackle this prob­lem has been tricky due to strict air­plane leg­is­la­tion and reg­u­la­tion for elec­tronic and wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vices. Re­com­inte’s so­lu­tion was de­signed to ad­dress these con­cerns by au­to­mat­i­cally shut­ting it­self off when fly­ing and turn­ing it­self back on when on the ground. Tracer Tag in­cor­po­rates the Telit’s GL865-QUAD and JN3 mod­ules to pro­vide its best-in-class track­ing so­lu­tion.

The Telit GL865-QUAD is a GSM/ GPRS mod­ule that comes with 4 GSM bands for global ap­pli­ca­tions. With its ul­tra-com­pact de­sign and ex­tended tem­per­a­ture range, the Telit GL865-QUAD prod­uct is the per­fect plat­form for high-vol­ume m2m ap­pli­ca­tions and mo­bile data de­vices. Additional fea­tures such as in­te­grated TCP/IP pro­to­col stack and se­rial mul­ti­plexer ex­tend func­tion­al­ity of the ap­pli­ca­tion at no additional cost.
