The Crown Joule: 3 Different Ways to Power Trailer Tracking
One of the biggest challenges in selecting a trailer telematics solution is making sure it comes with a reliable and energy-rich power source. In fact, the power source is arguably the most critical component in a telematics device.
In this Point of View, Philip Poulidis, Senior Vice President & GM of BlackBerry Radar will discuss three types of power sources that are available with today’s trailer tracking solutions, and how to select the one that maximizes a trailer pool’s ROI.
Low Maintenance Devices
BlackBerry Radar devices are easy to install, provide maintenance-free operation and have unparalleled network connectivity for reliable asset tracking and monitoring.
These devices use the BlackBerry® QNX real-time operating system, which is trusted by customers to provide mission critical stability in industries like automotive, medical and nuclear power generation.
BlackBerry Radar devices can be installed and activated in under 10 minutes by virtually anyone. There is no requirement to connect to external power sources or additional sensors—everything is self-contained in the device, simplifying asset tracking.
The Real World Needs Real-Time Information
Improving utilization and efficiency is only possible if you have continuous visibility into all assets in your transportation or equipment fleet.
With multi-sensor measurement intervals taken every 5 minutes and a configurable data upload rate, BlackBerry Radar asset tracking devices collect up to 100X more data than basic GPS trackers. You get rich and accurate data that supports in-depth analytics, applications and instant alerts that you need to optimize daily operations more effectively.
