The industries simplest to operate yet most complete fully FMCSA compliant HOS application

cropped-logo-only-1-inch1.jpg

Introducing DriverLog by Wireless Links.

The industries simplest to operate yet most complete fully FMCSA compliant HOS application.

DriverLog can be installed on any Android device and is fully integrated with Wireless Links Fleet.net fleet management server providing the dispatcher with complete visibility of the status of every driver in the HOS cycle including replay of history and comprehensive reports.

For integrators and software developers, Wireless Links offers Plug & Play seamless integration of DriverLog into any 3rd party under affordable licensing plan.

One of the DriverLog’s major advantages is its automatic data protection. The HOS data from the Android device is continuously uploaded and stored on the Fleet.net server. The HOS data on the Android device is continuously and automatically synchronized with the data stored on the server. In a case where the driver loses or breaks the device; when logging in from a new device with the correct credentials, the server will automatically download to the new device current and historical data allowing seamless operation.

DriverLog has three optional modes of operation and communication:

  1. DriverLog is installed on an Android tablet that has no cellular modem.
    The driver will record the HOS on the tablet that is Off-Line. The data will be processed and displayed on the device but the Fleet.Net server will be updated and synchronized with the HOS data only. When the Android tablet has reached an area with Wi-Fi coverage where it can register, the data accumulated on the Android tablet can be uploaded to the Fleet.Net server.
  2. DriverLog is installed on an Android smart Phone with a cellular data plan.
    The Android smart phone is communicating real time with the Fleet.net server via the smart phone’s cellular data plan and is fully synchronized with the server. The major advantage of this option is that the dispatcher has REAL-TIME VISIBILITY of the status of every driver in the HOS cycle. Optionally the smart phone may also be used to send GPS data to the Fleet.net server.
  3. Piccolo Plus for Fleet managements and WIFI router.
    In this option; Piccolo Plus – The industry’s most innovative GPS unit is installed in the truck. In addition to the Piccolo Plus being an advanced GPS unit with functions such as: Engine Diagnostics, Driver Behavior, IO’s, PTO’s for Lift Monitoring, Temperature Monitoring and much more, the Piccolo Plus is also a WIFI Hot Spot. It routes the HOS data from the Android tablet to the internet via cellular communication. This option, in addition to the advanced and comprehensive fleet management functionalities offered by Fleet.net, the dispatcher has real time visibility of the HOS shift and cycle status of each driver (See Fleet.net screen below). One of the major advantages of this option is that only one SIM is needed for both GPS fleet management and HOS functionalities.

The Fleet.Net server is continuously updated and synchronized with the mobile device so the dispatcher is updated real time on every driver status within the HOS shift and cycle.

Wireless Links introduces innovative temperature monitoring solutions for cold chain supply made simple and affordable by innovation

Piccolo Hybrid – Dual Mode for Trailer Tracking and temperature monitoring for up to 6 cold zones in one trailer

Packaged in an IP65 waterproof enclosure with a rechargeable lithium back up battery and up to 6 temperature sensors to monitor up to 6 different zones in a refrigerated trailer or truck. The Piccolo has flexible setting to send temperature with every GPS and/or when the temperature is changing with certain value, additionally send automatic alarm once an extreme high low temperature level is reached. The unit will automatically switch from real time vehicle tracking mode to asset tracking mode once external power is disconnected. For example, when the trailer is disconnected from the cabin, the unit will automatically switch to be powered by the backup battery and will enter “asset tracking mode”. In this mode, rather than sending GPS and temperature in the normal predetermined interval of 1-2 minutes, the unit will send GPS data in longer intervals.
When disconnected from power, a possible scenario could be that the unit will send GPS and temperature data once an hour. Also when parked the Piccolo Hybrid will wake up automatically and send an alarm once vibration is detected, then switch to send data every XX minutes for as long as the vibration continues (asset is in motion or vibration is detected).
The unit will send notifications to the server when and where the external power is disconnected and switch to operate on internal backup battery. Also, the unit sends a notification to the server when and where the external power is reconnected. With every GPS message, the unit sends the battery level it currently operates on.

Piccolo Plus integrated with RFLink – The only active RFID tag in the world that has a temperature sensor and is integrated with a GPS unit for advanced fleet management, asset tracking and temperature monitoring functionalities in a refrigerated trailer and/or refrigerated truck 
RFLink is a cost effective solution to monitor the pickup and drop off location of a refrigerated trailer and to know the temperature inside the refrigerated trailer at the time of pick up or drop off.
The solution includes a Piccolo Plus GPS unit installed in a truck. The Piccolo, in addition to its normal GPS Fleet Management functionalities, is also regularly communicating with small RFTags that are being placed on the trailer .The RFTag has an integrated temperature sensor and optionally can also have an external temperature sensor to be placed inside the trailer.
When the truck gets within a range of up to 70 meters from the trailer, the RFTag will establish a wireless communication link with the Piccolo Plus and will send its temperature reading. The Piccolo Plus will then send to the server via cellular communication a “connect” message with the time and temperature of that RFtag and that RFtag GPS location obtained from the Piccolo Plus and vice versa. When the asset is dropped off and the truck drives away, the RF tag is no longer within range, and the Piccolo will send a “disconnect” and last temperature reading including a GPS location message to the server.
The RFTags optionally has one ON/OFF input for monitoring events such as door open/close.
As opposed to the Piccolo Hybrid ( Solution #1 )  the RFLink is not a real time tracking solution rather a monitoring solution. On the server side by the push of a button, the dispatcher will know the location of every trailer, when it was picked up, when it was dropped off, and by which driver and what was the temperature inside that trailer at the pick up and drop off .
RFtag is a cost effective solution for monitoring assets. The advantage of this solution – no need for wiring the communication between the RFTag and the Piccolo as it’s Wireless communication.

Once placed in the refrigerated area the Piccolo TMX is normally in deep sleep mode configured to wake up once every XX minutes, read the temperature with the current GPS position and send it with a time stamp to the server.
Alternatively, in order to preserve battery life wake up every XX minutes (for example every 5 minutes) read the temperature with the battery life and time stamp store it in the Piccolo TMX memory and send all accumulated reading with their respective time stamps to the server every YY minutes (for example every 60 minutes).

Piccolo STX – the ultimate solution for refrigerated trucks 
a GPS unit installed in the cabin that in addition to GPS, Jbus, IO’s – standard fleet management functionalities, it also has an integrated external digital temperature sensor installed in the refrigerated truck. The Piccolo has flexible settings which allows sending temperature with every GPS and/or when the temperature is changing to a certain value, additionally it sends an automatic alarm once an extreme high low temperature level is reached.
