Beidou : named COMPASS is Chinese project navigation and positioning satellite
Engine block : A function allowing you to remotely interrupt your vehicle engine operation by a simple SMS. This option is ideal in case of theft, helping you to quickly find your vehicle.
SOS button(or alert button) : Allows the GPS plotter to touch and send the geographical position of your vehicle.
Doors opening/closing sensor : made of two parts: fixed and mobile.
The magnet integrated to the moving part establishes contact in the fixed part when it comes close. The fixed part contains a switch called ‘reed relay’ . When the door is closed, the two parts are in contact. When the door is opened, the magnetic field disappears, the two parties separated, the contact is opened and the intrusion detected.
Web mapping : is an interactive representation of geographical data for a reduced support. It includes a topographic map to find or locate a region, road or itinerary.
The advent of Web 2.0 has fostered many web mapping services among them: Google Maps.
Corridoring : to draw a traffic corridor, trigging an alert while crossing the vehicle perimeter.
Galileo : a positioning system satellite launched by the European Commission in 1999. This project was developed in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2003. It is based on a constellation of 30 satellites that will cover the entire globe with ground control stations.
The peculiarity of this system is its civilian use particularly in transportation, social services, justice and customs services, public works,search and rescue systems.
Geofencing : process of defining an area on a map. While crossing the area perimeter by the vehicle triggers, an alert is given to the operator
Geolocation : a process that allows you to point on a map, the location of one or more areas (cities, mountains, events.) from their geographic coordinates ..
Glonass : a Soviet positioning system satellite initiated in the eighties. It is managed by the Space Forces of the Russian Federation ..
GPRS : General Packet Radio Service is the second generation GSM network. It is based on a packet data transmission. This development provides access to new features such as access to the Internet, sending and receiving multimedia messages.
GPS : Global Positioning System is a geolocation system initiated by the Department of Defence of the United States. It relies on satellite signals to identify a location on a map. It receives satellite information enabling it to calculate longitude and latitude. This information will be used to locate an object on a map.
Differential GPS : Differential Global Positioning System that was designed to improve GPS accuracy. It is based on a fixed reference station network which transmits the difference between the positions indicated by the satellites and their known real positions.
GSM : Global System for Mobile communications is a global telephony standard. It was designed for low-rate communications circuit mode and carries only voice and simple text.
Inmarsat : International Maritime Satellite organization.Is a company specialized in mobile satellite communications. It operates a network of geostationary satellites.
IRNSS : Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System is a satellite positioning system developed by the Indian government.
QZSS : : Quasi-Zenith Satellite System is a regional satellite positioning system being developed by the Japanese Space Agency JAXA.
RFID : RFID technologies’ Radio Frequency Identification ” are quintessential traceability techniques. They use markers called smart labels or tags (smart chips) or transponders (transmitter and responder) that include a programmable chip and a wound or printed antenna. They enable remote identification of objects or people through a reader that captures information in a chip.
