The GPS/GPRS devices are autonomous battery-powered device for real-time monitoring of valuable shipments and transportation vehicles via the GSM network. The device contains a range of sensors, including temperature, humidity, battery Voltage, air pressure, light intensity, RF-strength, tilt, battery percentage and shock-force. The device also enables localisation of shipments with GPS and cellular localisation. The Sendum PT 300 automatically shuts off prior to aircraft take-off, and automatically turns back on when the aircraft lands. While in-flight, the device continues to collect sensor data.
Because of the device’s capabilities to transmit the GPS location, it is also possible in smartview to draw a geofence around a location. Once the GPS/GPRS device will be associated to a shipment and once this will enter/leave the area that the geofence was defined, it will trigger an alarm and notify all the recipients defined in the event profile.
