OVERVIEW
EVALKIT provides all of the necessary hardware, software, and documentation to
effectively operate and evaluate the performance and suitability of BOLERO unit. With
EVALKIT System Integrators and Developers can develop their own customized embedded
application. EVALKIT is shipped preconfigured. The included EVALBORD offers a series of
switches, LEDs and interfaces used to test the factory preloaded and your own
configuration.
The factory preloaded configuration enables you to test the system and see how the
BOLERO works when using web-based applications. Only a computer (PC client)
connected to the internet with a pre-installed standard web browser is necessary from the
user side.
FALCOM BOLERO-EVALKIT consists of 2 boxes:
1. BOLERO-EVAL-BOX (first box),
2. BOLERO-EVAL-ACCESSORIES (second box).
After completing the installation of the EVALKIT, using the preloaded configuration, without
any user changes, the BOLERO will connect automatically to the FALCOM application
server that provides two-way communication in real time. User-configuration can be
accomplished both locally via Bluetooth interface and remotely via SMS, Data or
GPRS/Internet.
For a complete description about configuration command set and how to develop userapplications with BOLERO, refer to the user manuals included on CD-ROM in PDF format.

BlueSoleil, then go to “BTE050/BT-33A1 icon”, right click on it, and start “Properties ....”, finally copy the device address
given on this dialog box ( for example: 00:0D:18:A0:C5:83) and send it to the device without colon“:”, thereafter restart the
unit. (the Mac address uses Hexadecimal characters meaning only 0-9 and A-F are valid).
e.g.“$PFAL,Cnf.Set,DEVICE.BT.AUDIOGW=000D18A0C583,8888.
NOTE: DEVICE.BT.AUDIOGW parameter enters not only the predefined passkey of your Bluetooth headset device, but
also it changes the passkey of your BOLERO device being used for serial data connection. If you change the
passkey with DEVICE.BT.AUDIOGW parameter and reboot the BOLERO, type the new passkey when prompted
for the passkey.

BOLERO operating software
BOLERO contains an independent-customized software that provides even greater
performance and flexibility for its users and system integrators to develop highperformance applications. The software stored inside the device enables users to
implement applications, to track, control and monitor the BOLERO device, as well as to set
and poll the configuration of the device remotely via SMS, data call or from an Internet
server. The software comprises a set of word-like commands termed “PFAL”. Each
command causes the system BOLERO either to take a particular action or to read, set a
particular configuration. BOLERO-EVALKIT is supplied with a basic configuration settings as
starting points for the creation of user applications. This configuration is primarily intended
to exercise the hardware and software features for your test purposes, it also allows you to
simply change the configuration and adapt it to your own needs. Thus you have the
possibility to configure 1 x Button and 4 x I/Os depending on what the configuration is most
important for you. Additionally there are 4 x LED indicators which can be programmed to
display the operation status of the unit.
References how to customize the configuration of your BOLERO device are available in
the BOLERO software manual – see related documents in chapter 1.2, page 5. The
BOLERO included in the BOLERO-EVALKIT has been factory-preloaded with a configuration
that allows you quickly and easy to start the evaluation processes. When you power and
start up the BOLERO unit, it connects automatically to the both included Keyfobs, I/O-BOX
and FALCOM application server using the factory-preloaded configuration without any
changes made by the user – see chapter “How does the BOLERO-EVALKIT work with
factory preloaded configuration“.
To have access the FALCOM application server, only a computer (PC client) connected
to the internet with the pre-installed standard web browser is necessary from the user side
- moreover how to log in, see next chapter.
3.5
FALCOM Trace4You application software
FALCOM Trace4You
with a permanent high-speed internet connection enables
each BOLERO-EVALKIT user to login and view their BOLERO (vehicle data) from any
browser anywhere in the world. It allows you to view all vehicles equipped with BOLERO
units, view history of vehicle events, view reports, manage geofences, and change the
current configuration of any of the BOLERO units.
After the BOLERO is successfully powered up, open a web browser (IE 6 or Firefox) and
enter the following address:
http://eval.trace4you.com/tracker2
