FALCOM
A leading developer and manufacturer of automatic vehicle location systems,
personal and asset tracking products for commercial and
industrial applications.
FOX-IN
The Advanced Vehicle Tracking System
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
FOX-IN is a free configurable smart tracking device which can be fully
adapted to user requirements. Its main purpose is to act as a mobile
client for various system solutions like AVL, fleet management, vehicle
security and recovery. The device can operate fully autonomous and it
is able to interact using sensors and actors.
It can be adapted to existing tracking solutions and can be easily
configured to gather or exchange relevant information with servers or
users directly. An often used example is to send status reports or
verbose alert messages directly via SMS to users and/or via TCP to
tracking servers. Users benefit most from combining comfort and
security aspects - for example having regular voice calls as well as spy
calls in emergency cases. Drivers logbook and data logging
functionalities are combined in the history feature.
Geofencing can be used to report violations of predefined routes or
areas (for example if a car enters or leaves a specific Area/Geo-fence).
All of these features are perfectly integrated in a device concept which
significantly reduces time-to-market and provides low cost tracking
and security solutions.
