Truck, Commercial Vehicle and Heavy Equipment Telemetry
Slovenian based Altron offers its customers a comprehensive solution in the field of GPS localization services and telemetry for vehicles and heavy machinery used in construction, foresting, or logistics sectors. It aims to reduce machine operating costs by remotely tracking data such as operational hours, locations, or fuel levels automatically.
Remote system diagnostics allow insights into real-time status of vehicles in use. Altron utilizes the Wialon GPS tracking solution developed by Gurtam for designing individual customer solutions.
The company ensures all-time reliable connectivity from the vehicle to the cloud via SIM card and the 1NCE IoT Lifetime Flat .
Altron designs, develops, and integrates complete system solutions according to its customers’ requirements. These solutions range from a single worksite activity monitoring system to a more complex one that tracks and records every activity, movement and parameter of machines and vehicles in use. These solutions also involve workflow digitalization by replacing manual recording and calculation with remote reading and diagnostics as well as automated creation of reports and field force work orders.
All-time vehicle and machinery tracking require reliable and secure connectivity that allows for a constant data flow from the device to the backend to collect and process telemetry data. Therefore, a network is required to be available everywhere with no further setup or installation costs. Cellular connectivity has proven to be the best solution for Altron as it offers worldwide availability with a standardized and secure technology. A second challenge: Tariff calculation is often complex and varies between operator, data usage, bearer technology and location, making it unattractive for many use cases.
The 1NCE IoT Lifetime Flat is a cellular data rate available worldwide, offering 10-year connectivity over all available bearer technologies like 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT or LTE-M with no extra charges for setup, installation or roaming. It is designed to usually last over the complete lifecycle of a device and therefore can be easily priced into any device, making the final solution easy to calculate and any business model scalable.
