The DART M2M platform has its roots grounded in GPS tracking and industrial data radio. Raveon’s RavTrack GPS tracking system is built around narrow-band data radio modems. Raveon’s Cigorn gateway enables GPS tracking with narrow-band technology over very wide areas.
DART is the natural progression of Raveon’s RavTrack system. Adding dynamic frequency, ID, timing, and bandwidth allocation, Raveon has created an even more powerful GPS tracking system capable of covering whole countries, with millions of devices, and still make it easier to configure and setup than a static system.
Setting up a DART GPS Tracking System
- Install base stations at all the sites need to cover the region you wish to GPS track over.
- Each base can have from 1-20 radio channels
- Busy areas can have more channels, remote areas fewer channels.
- Each base station has a BSC that controls the base station.
- Install a Master Gateway at one base site, or at a central network location.
- The Master Gateway communicates to all base stations
- The Master Gateway authenticates and controls all GPS trackers on the network.
- The Master Gateway routes data and GPS locations to any number of endpoints.
- The Master Gateway outputs $PRAVE messages telling the speed, position, heading, mileage,…
- Install Wireless Devices (WDs) with GPS tracking options into every vehicle and device to be tracked.
- Each WD with GPS option has a GPS antenna on it to receive the GPS position.
- At a rate setup in the Master Gateway, the WD GPS transponder will automatically send its position.
- Monitor the location of your GPS transponders.
- Use Raveon’s RavTrack PC GPS tracking Windows application.
- Or use GPS tracking software from numerous other vendors.
- Or setup a web server to share GPS tracking information.
- Or, write your own GPS tracking application using the readily available APIs.
