Trax GPS

Tracker devices are pre-allocated to registered clients by Maritime Systems. The app then allows the client to sign on and view all their assigned trackers.

The trackers use Narrow Band Internet of Things technologies (NB-IoT) to send their location via Vodafone IoT Solutions to an AWS instance configured by Bearded Hen. The NB-IoT works with minimal bandwidth requirements resulting in device battery lives of between 5 – 10 years.

The app allows the user to view the routes trackers have followed historically and in real-time on a Google Map view.
