Application Background Printer Friendly Version
Many industries need to track vehicles and other assets for commercial and occupational health, safety and security reasons.
GPS receiver modules are easily obtained to mount on a vehicle or asset and the position of the asset is shown locally
This application reads the GPS position and routinely sends the position via cell phone or satellite networks to a central server to display on Google Maps using a standard web browser and perhaps exported out to a companion GIS/Land Information System.
This vehicle/ asset tracking system is generally used in conjunction with a wider application, such as remote asset monitoring.
There are several applications for mobile maintenance facilities, truck mounted repair facilities for example, where test and commissioning data is collected from oil wells or other assets on a regular maintenance trip. Having the GPS location recorded along with the data is useful as an audit trail of the measurements at different locations.
The 2501A Neon GPS Receiver Module is a GPS Receiver with a dedicated interface to the Neon Remote Terminal/ Module family of products.
The 2501A Neon GPS Receiver Module receives standard NMEA GPS data streams and puts those data streams into registers that can be read by Neon Remote Terminals and Modules. The Neon Remote Terminals and Modules can be programmed to routinely or on demand obtain the current latitude and longitude and send this position data to the Neon Server.
The system supports Geo Fencing, where the system can alarm when the unit is brought within a specified distance from a location, for example 500 meters from a depot or pumping station.
The Neon Server presents the position data overlaid on a Google maps interface if required, as well as displaying various options for tracking history and tracking of different specified groups.
The connected Neon Remote Terminal or Module records the latitude and longitude as required by the logging scheme and schedule so the position can be logged in the same way as normal logged data. Hence the position logging is maintained even when there is no cell phone or satellite phone coverage.
Neon Remote Terminal or Module have digital inputs and outputs and available for input or output of tracking status information or operational information.
As an example an input could be connected to a distress button, a disable button, a battery status or vehicle status input. As an example, an output could be connected to a warning light or siren.
