Tracker

Tracker

tracker A tracker is a device capable of determining its position using GPS satellites.

Trackers determine and record their position at a predetermined interval and send this information to the IneTrack servers through the very same GSM network that is used by mobile phones. For this communication, a SIM card is needed, just like in the case of regular mobile phones. Tracking devices also have built-in memory, where they can store the recorded data, so there is no data loss even if the tracker cannot establish a connection with the servers for some reason.

To interpret GPS signals, trackers contain a GPS receiver unit, which is responsible for calculating the position of the device.

Besides recording position data, some trackers can also react to certain events, such as the turning of the ignition switch, opening of a door, SOS signal, and so on.

GPS receiver

GPS receiver

basic1-125_information A GPS signal receiver chip is an essential part of any tracking device.
basic2-117_open_reading_book The Global Positioning System (GPS) is used to pinpoint a device’s location anywhere on earth.

The basic concept is that GPS satellites send signals to the earth, containing their position and the time the signal was sent. The receiver chip, which is a part of the tracker, takes this signal and analyses it.

Once the device has received a clear signal from at least four satellites, it can calculate its position.

 

Note: receiving GPS signals only permits the device’s owner to tell its location. Tracking requires the device to send its calculated position to an additional endpoint, such as a server.

In the case of IneTrack, this data is sent using the mobile network (cellular network), therefore all devices have a mobile data connection (which is enabled by a SIM card).

If this connection is temporarily lost, the device can cache its data, and may send it once the connection is re-established, so no data loss may occur.

SIM card

SIM card

basic1-125_information A Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card is a small plastic card with an integrated circuit.
Having a SIM card enables the device to wirelessly communicate with a cellular network.

This network is used for all data traffic. The tracker device will regularly send its calculated position (along with additional data) in small packets to a server, where the contents of these packets are analysed.

To ensure privacy and reliability, IneTrack uses a Virtual Private Network.

IneTrack SIM cards use M2M communication. You may choose either a roaming or a non-roaming subscription. If you opt for a non-roaming SIM card and you leave your country, the tracker will function as normal. It will uploads all of its data when you return to the original network.

Similarly, if a signal loss happens, the device will continue to record, and cache the data. When a clear signal has been re-established with the network, it will upload the cached data.

Note: the devices may also work with the owner’s existing SIM card if it has an active mobile data subscription.

Installing the built-in tracker

basic2-085_warning_attention We recommend going to a service station and have the tracker installed there by professionals.

You may also install the tracker yourself at your own risk.  However, only attempt installation if you are confident that you have the suitable knowledge to perform a proper installation! Incorrect installation may cause the device to malfunction.

Note: there is usually enough space to place the tracker behind the dashboard. If you wish to install the tracker onto a metal surface, make sure to apply a layer of thermal insulation between the device and the surface.

The positioning of the GPS antenna is very important.

The accuracy and the consistency of the tracking solely depends on whether the device can receive a clear signal or not. Therefore, do not install the antenna into the engine compartment or in the trunk as these locations are shaded by the metal body of the car.
