Globalstar’s SmartOne Selected for Fleet Tracking in Colombia
[Via Satellite 04-23-2015] Spanish technology and fleet tracking solutions specialist FAGOR Electrónica has entered an agreement with Globalstar Europe Satellite Services for a satellite tracking solution in Latin America. The company is providing Globalstar’s SmartOne data modem through its authorized distributor Skytracking to incorporate satellite in a hybrid tracking system.
Globalstar’s SmartOne will enable fleet tracking when vehicles travel beyond the reach of GSM networks. The device also provides engine runtime information and total mileage, as well as a vibration sensor that detects unexpected motion, such as attempted theft.
“This market has huge growth potential,” said Corry Brennan, simplex regional sales manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Globalstar. “Governments are eager to have more transparency in the transport industry, and there is an increase in regulations that cargo-carrying vehicles have trackers installed.”
