Weighing only 25g and smaller than a matchbox, Trax is a groundbreaking blend of hardware, software and experience design that enables accurate real-time GPS tracking internationally thanks to its integrated SIM. Using its free App, a user can easily see the position of each tracker assigned to the app in an intuitive interface real-time, and control the way the tracker notifies of tracking alerts. Trax uses “Assisted GPS” – using not only direct information from GPS and Glonass satellites but also GSM/GPRS Quad-band, resulting in very reliable positioning achieved very quickly. As well as being accurate outdoors, Trax uses 3D Fusion, its integrated accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope and advanced algorithms to continue accurate tracking indoors and in places where satellite information cannot be received, with accuracy of 1.5-3m. Trax also uses Dynamic Modes, where it responds to your calculated activites: for instance, if Trax is not moving it goes into sleep mode so that no data is sent (thus preserving battery life). If you start walking, it then responds with the mode most appropriate for walking. All this, in a very small device which is easy to use and practical for staying close to loved ones wherever they are!
Trax’s free App is a actually a tracking solution on its own, granting free App to App tracking for older kids or visiting friends or travelling purposes. Combined with the tracker, the user can build and customise Geofences around areas like schools, playgrounds, sportsfields, parks, friends’ houses. These can be scheduled to operate or lie dormant on specific days of the week and certain times for ease of use. As the tracker’s administrator, the user can even share a tracker with a babysitter or dog walker for example. Parents and pet owners are kept informed of the whereabouts of their loved ones through push notifications when a tracker enters or leaves a geofence zone, if the tracker needs charging, starts to travel above a designated (customizable) speed or is dropped for some reason. If the user is close to a tracker, say letting the dog off the lead in parkland, yet not in the line of sight, the Trax app features augmented reality using the smartphone’s camera. Panning around will soon show the direction of your dog and its distance in meters.
