I
ntelligent Fleet Management with GPS Tracking

Location Updates
Vehicle devices can be programmed to provide the dispatch center with timed updates, e.g. every 1 minutes. The time period is programmable, which is dependent on needs, and wireless capacity to handle the data generated, and in case of cellular and satellite, monthly cost of an airtime plan,

Speed Exceptions
The vehicle devices can be programmed with speed exception information. Once that speed is exceeded, the unit reports the instance back to the dispatcher center.

Distance Traveled
The vehicle devices can be programmed to report GPS based on distance traveled.

Starts/Stops
The vehicle devices can be programmed to report position based on user definable start/stop activity.

Exception Reporting
Products have auxiliary inputs (e.g. ignition or meter on/off) that report vehicle position on a change of state, e.g. door open.

Vehicle Status Activation
Vehicle location is automatically updated when the driver activates terminal status/menu key or emergency control (TRK-240/Garmin Navigation Terminal, Mobi software for smartphones and field computers).

Data Logging
The CES Wireless products have the capability of automatically storing vehicle activity and location for extended periods of time. This may be required when the vehicle is outside the wireless geographical coverage area or indeed a faulty antenna. Once the vehicle returns to the wireless coverage area, all of the data stored in memory is downloaded to the dispatch center.

 

In addition, the FA-888 is a GPS tracking device that stores generated data and downloads via Wi-Fi when the vehicle returns.

 

GEO-fencing
Geographical co-ordinates of the vehicles travel path or target destinations can be programmed or transmitted to the terminal. Once the vehicle reaches that location border, the terminal advises the dispatcher automatically. Various zone sizes can be accommodated.

Poll - Ping
The dispatcher can send a command to the vehicle device at any time and receive its current location automatically.

geo-STATUS™
geo-STATUS™ is a proprietary ‘patent pending’ technology developed by CES Wireless to allow for certain “location based” statuses to be automated (i.e. at plant, leave plant, on job, leave job). The GPS samples and looks for a match to the plant zones/job ticket zone stored. Once the device acknowledges its presence in a particular zone the terminal automatically reports this specific and unique status to the Dispatch Center. Entry and exit is reported. The geo-STATUS™ coordinates can be preprogrammed in the terminal, or can be programmed over the air by the host software therefore supporting customer locations that can change regularly throughout the day. The product can support 99 different geo-STATUS coordinates.


Auxiliary Inputs and Outputs
In vehicle units have inputs and outputs to monitor and control vehicle activities. Inputs can be connected to ignition, doors, siren, seat belt indicator, money shoot etc. When a state changes (open or close) the exception is reported back to the dispatch center.

Auxiliary outputs allow the dispatcher to control the vehicle, e.g. honk horn, turn lights on, kill ignition.

MileagePlus
Provides the dispatcher with accurate mileage that the vehicle had traveled. Can be sent as the mileage between status reports or the accumulated mileage.

Manual/Automatic Vehicle Status
CES Wireless products contain smart algorithms that provide either manual or automatic vehicle status updates. Using the TRK-240 status keys, the driver can manually select a key that reflects their current status and with the touch of a button update the dispatch center. This message is appended with the current location and time.

Products also contain auxiliary inputs that can connect to various parts of the vehicle, e.g. ignition. When the ignition is turned on or off the CES Wireless device updates the dispatch center on the new state.

CES Wireless products also support Automatic Status, which use on board electronics, vehicle location and logic to decide the current status of the vehicle. For example, in the Garbage industry, a job ticket is sent to the TRK-240 terminal, which also contains the geographical coordinates of the vehicles target customer location. When the vehicle reaches the location, the CES Wireless device knows its there and sends the status ‘at location’ to the dispatch center. In the Readymix industry when the drum starts to rotate at a certain speed and direction, and knowing that the vehicle is at the customer’s location, the CES Wireless device will send a status indicating that the unit is ‘pouring”. This same logic and process can be transformed to other industries as well


Two-Way Text/Job Tickets
The CES Wireless models TRK-240/Garmin Navigation Terminal, Mobi software for smartphones and field computers are in vehicle GPS based message display terminals with an intelligent driver interface. A dispatcher can send text messages to the terminal/driver, e.g. delivery instructions, traffic information etc, and the driver can respond with updates on activities.

The TRK-240 also supports intelligent work order processing and job tickets. The dispatcher can send job tickets to the driver and the driver can respond with manual or auto updates on specific job status'. The TRK-240 supports multiple job tickets and manifests.

Canned Messages
Devices can be programmed with text messages affording the driver or dispatch to rapidly send recurring messages with the click of a button.

Status/Menu Keys
Both the TRK-240/Garmin Navigation Terminal, Mobi software contain status and menu keys, which provides the driver with a one-button control to update the dispatch center on current job or vehicle activities, e.g. on site, at plant, in service, breakdown.

Moreover, these keys can be programmed as menu keys to obtain further information from the driver, e.g. when the driver activates the In Service key, the display asks, “Please enter the odometer reading”. The driver using the numeric keypad enters the odometer reading and presses Send. The status keys and prompts are entirely user programmable to reflect customer activities or industry.

Bar Code Reader
The CES Wireless devices support third party bar code readers. This provides the user with the capability of tracking packages, gas tanks or any merchandise or inventory. Also used for scanning employee ID badges.

Credit Card Processing
The TRK-240 supports field commerce. With the optional card reader, credit card transactions can be processed from the field. The driver can enter the dollar amount to be processed. If the card is not read properly, the TRK-240 switches to a manual mode for driver entry.

Magnetic Card Reader
The TRK-240 supports data entry using a magnetic card reader. With the optional card reader, identity and product information can be processed from the field. The driver can enter numeric information to be processed with the scan. If the card is not read properly, the TRK-240 switches to a manual mode for driver entry.

Mobile Printer
The TRK-240 supports a number of printers depending on the application. This can take the form of credit card receipts, or job ticket printers.

Taxi Meter Interface
The TRK-240 can monitor taximeter activity and advise the dispatch center when the meter is on and when it is off. It also supports the capability of advising the dispatch center of the dollar total per trip (select meters only).

In Vehicle Product Integration
CES Wireless products are supplied with multiple ports. With our own in house engineering, we can, subject to review and quotation, integrate our products to other third party products.
