Lat-Lon introduces a new level of ‘SMART’ tracking technology with the addition of Adaptive Device Configuration (ADC). Tracking and monitoring devices can now make decisions on their own with the help of ADC.
Traditionally, users of GPS tracking devices would need to closely monitor and manually change the configuration of a device. For large fleets, this task can be overwhelming and time prohibitive. ADC makes it possible for users to easily manage reporting configuration and get automatic updates based on location, weather data, proximity to set points, unit status, and sensor input.
ADC users can add ‘if-then’ logic at the back-office level that allows a unit to react to data. This creates efficient, customized reporting which allows customers to track their assets even closer at critical times. For example, once a device leaves a specific geo-fence, reporting frequency can change to automatically update every ten minutes. Additionally, if it is sunny and the unit has a strong charge, reporting frequency can increase to every minute.
Dave Baker, President of Lat-Lon says "The natural progression of IoT is to add a layer of feedback to the units in the field so that they can automatically reconfigure based on changing conditions both local to the units as well as any other sources of data, such as the internet or business operational considerations."
Lat-Lon’s goal in creating ADC was to improve the ‘SMART’ technology by taking out the manual steps in the configuration process. This is beneficial for customers because they receive more timely data, reduce their work load, and increase their productivity.
Lat-Lon, a BSM Technologies company, is expanding the use of ADC in-line with customer needs and deployment situations. The ADC is compatible with the latest version of solar-powered tracking units (STU) and compact tracking units (CTU) by Lat-Lon.
