Trailer Tracking

We’ve made trailer tracking as easy as possible for you!

Trailer tracking is becoming more and more popular with our customers. Whether your trailers are flatbed, drop deck or refrigerated, our units are so small and lightweight that they can be fitted almost anywhere on your trailer, giving you peace of mind that it’s secure when not being used.

How it works

The unit is installed into the trailer and can be connected up through the vehicles’ cabling so that when the trailer is connected to a cab or tractor unit the device is running from the main vehicle power. As soon as the trailer is disconnected the device uses its own battery power to generate location reports.

Length of operating time

This will be subject to how the unit is configured to report. We are able to customise the reporting level in order to extend the life of the battery when the trailer is disconnected. It may be possible to achieve up to 3 months of reporting on a standalone trailer.

Trailer monitoring – simply log into your own user face (whether at home, at work or on your smartphone) to see where your trailer is on a map to be reassured of its location.

Technical

improve-efficiency

The global positioning system (GPS) consists of 24 operational satellites (with several spares) orbiting the earth at an altitude of approximately 11,000 miles. The satellites orbit the earth twice per day in a pattern, which ensures that at least 4 satellites can be viewed from the earth at any position any time of the day. Typically however between 5 and 7 satellites may be in view.

These satellites broadcast signals, which are analysed by GPS receivers on the earth. The signals carry information such as the satellite idenitifier, it’s position, and an extremely accurate date and time (derived from an on board atomic clock). GPS receivers on the ground use the signal from at least 4 satellites to determine their own position with an accuracy of around 10 to 20 metres.

The Foretrack GPS receiver also contains a GSM GPRS device inside (much like that found inside a mobile phone). This allows the receiver to transmit its information from the receiver back to the host server in real time via the internet.

The Foretrack GPS receiver also calculates a variety of fleet management information (speed, heading, distance, idling, driver behavior), which is transmitted along with the vehicle location tracking information.
