Monitor when and where a student gets on and off a bus while managing your fleet.

cropped-logo-only-1-inch1.jpg

RFLink is a revolutionary accurate and reliable solution to monitor when and where a student gets on and off a bus and is fully integrated with the GPS based fleet management system that tracks the bus.

The solution includes a Piccolo Plus GPS unit installed in the bus that in
addition to sending data such as GPS, IO’s, driver behavior and engine diagnostics also has an active RFID receiver. A small battery operated RFTag transmi􀂂tter is placed in the backpack of each student.

The RFTag has an active RFID transmi􀂂tter with a range of 210 ft. (70 m). Once a student gets on the bus, the RFTag will automatically link up and register with the Piccolo Plus and will route the data of the student ID, Time and Location of registration to the Fleet.net server.

When the student gets off the bus the link will be broken and the Piccolo will send a notification to the server with the date, time and exact location where the student got off the bus.

The server will display visually in real-time the location of each bus and the list of students on that bus and will generate reports as needed.

The advantage of using the RFTags is that the registration of getting on and off the bus is done automatically – no action is required by the student.

bus

 

Passive RFID – A passive RFID reader connected via RS232 to the Piccolo Plus that is installed in the bus.

The passive RFID reader is installed on the dashboard of the bus. Each student is provided with a passive RFID tag that is about the size of a credit card or with a key chain butt􀂂on tag the size of a dime. When the student gets on or off the bus they are required to scan the RFID tag by passing the tag around 5” (8cm) from the RFID reader. The Piccolo Plus will send via cellular the ID of the scanned RFID tag to the server times-stamped with the date, time and location of the scan.

The rest of the functionality is the same as described above for the RFLink. The disadvantage of this option is that student action to scan the tag is required.

RFLINK: A GAME CHANGER FOR ASSET TRACKING

cropped-logo-only-1-inch1.jpg

Do you know where your trailers are?

RFLink temperature

Piccolo Plus is the only GPS unit in the market fully integrated with Active RFID technology revolutionizing the Asset Tracking market.

An RFTag is placed on every trailer, container, or any asset and a Piccolo Plus with an RFLink module is installed in every truck.  In addition to sending the GPS position, driver behavior, via the air engine diagnostics and temperature monitoring the Piccolo Plus is also communicating wirelessly with the RFTags placed on every trailer. The range of the RF communication is up to 250 feet (70m) and is configurable for shorter range as needed.

Once a trailer is picked up by a truck, the Piccolo Plus installed in the truck will detect the RFTag installed on the trailer and will establish a communication link sending the RFTag ID to the Piccolo Plus which will route the data via 2G or 3G cellular networks to a 3rd party application or to the Fleet.net server with the date, time and GPS location where the link was established to be marked as the pickup location. When the truck arrives at its destination, it drops off the trailer and drives away, at this point the RFLink between the RFTag installed on the trailer and the Piccolo Plus installed on the truck is broken and the Piccolo Plus will send a disconnect message to Fleet.net with the RFTag ID, time stamp, date and GPS location of the trailer drop off location.

The RFTags can also serve as wireless temperature sensors and wireless IO‘s for numerous status monitoring applications.

 with this option in addition to the HOS application installed on an Android phone, the Android phone will also send GPS data every minute to the Fleet.net server that will provide the dispatcher with GPS based fleet management functionalities. The cellular data communication for the HOS and GPS is via the existing cellular data plan of the phone, already bundled with the voice plan. To meet the DOT requirements for HOS we designed the BlueLink Bluetooth transmitter that is plugged directly into the trucks J1939 or J1708 engine diagnostic connector. BlueLink will send the odometer data to the DriverLog app on the Android phone.
