LiGO® devices have been specially programmed to track data when a significant event occurs. A significant event could be an on board system being engaged, vehicle direction change, Miles traveled, and/or time elapsed. The Smart Tracking System™ relies on event-based, rather than just time-based.
This keeps the data stream to LiGO® reduced to only meaningful data, reducing post processing requirements (data reduction) and significantly reducing M2M data costs. To the right is an example of how smart tracking also provides better adherence to the base map – no crossing buildings and parcels which might happen with delivery of data based only on time. This is significantly better than just gathering a track point every 2 minutes or even at 10 second intervals.
Additionally, event based tracking can provide fleets such as garbage collection trucks, street sweeping fleets, or public transportation fleets, and the managers in charge of them, with the ability to merge track data with other GIS data.
The use of a dump truck’s hydraulic arm, or the moment a street sweeper deploys its brooms can be set as events and displayed as data points view-able in LiGO®.
