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.
