A UK SME specialising in the design and development of standard or fully customised hardware, software and firmware of M2M (Machine 2 machine) devices for remote monitoring and tracking using GSM/GPRS/GPS/RFID and with the ability to monitor temperature/humidity/open/close and other variables suitable for Internet of Things (IOT) based applications seeks partners for distribution services agreement or services agreements
This UK SME has been working in the area of location based tracking for a number of years and has successfully developed a remote monitoring and asset tracking system complete with 3G/GSM modem to enable data to be transferred via the mobile networks In addition to tacking location the company is able to monitor and record additional variables such as temperature/humidity/open/close and provide instant alerts and alarms for a complete remote monitoring solution. The company has used this knowledge as part of the development of a wider range of M2M telematics IOT platforms that can be used across a wide range of industries. Possible applications include: Fleet management tracking Asset tracking – with RF for stolen/lost equipment recovery Asset tracking with RFID - for manufacturing supply chain Cable theft detection Remote locations of vending machines Remote alarms –, door open/close, power loss, water level, fuel level etc. Remote temperature/humidity monitoring e.g. for fridges and freezers People tracking – e.g. elderly, lone worker Animal tracking – dogs, endangered animals etc. Crop monitoring – developing networks in remote fields to send data back on crop health and soil conditions. The company seeks partners in a number of areas: Distributor for a distribution services agreement– partners who have a customer base in the relevant markets for IOT products and who would like to offer new M2M telematics solutions to their client base. End users for a services agreement– partners who have a requirement to monitor or track devices in remote areas or transfer data back from remote locations and need a customised solution.
Innovations and advantages
The company designs and manufactures all their hardware/software and firmware in house and as such are able to offer a completely customised M2M/location/remote monitoring solutions using GSM(Global System for Mobile Communication)GPRS(General Packet Radio Service),GPS(Global Positioning System), RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) suitable for IOT based applications. This also enables them to closely control the supply chain. The standard M2M and telematics board they produce is very small at 53mm X 36mm X 15mm meaning it can be easily incorporated into designs and is small and lightweight. The system can be equipped with a high capacity long life 3.6V primary lithium-thionyl chloride battery which combined with the very low power design can offer long term use of 2-3 years meaning the system can be used in remote areas where there is no power supply or in areas where the device needs to be hidden and discrete. Data is transferred using the GSM and 3G mobile networks The system includes a tamper alerting facilities to alert operators to attempts to tamper or remove the system. Devices can be supplied in robust enclosures The product can be integrated into third party devices and equipment, enabling communication directly with other sensors and devices.
