Advanced Tracking System

ATS is a complete platform that seeks to use different technologies to provide valid solutions to problems typical of the transport sector and, more generally, of monitoring systems.
With the ATS platform, achieving a detection accuracy of a few meters is possible using traditional, low-cost GPS receivers: the system captures information (raw data) from the receiver and reprocesses it, integrating this information with corrections provided by the local systems of GPS ground stations and the EGNOS system.
ATS integrates locational information with information obtained by wireless Zigbee network sensors installed on rover.
ATS also improves the security of transmitted information and provides a calibrated ionospheric model.
The importance of goods transport is constantly increasing in our globalised world. Knowing where goods are located in delivery networks is important for customers, but also for logistics companies seeking to reduce shipping costs and time latencies and offer the best service to customers.
ATS is a complete platform that seeks to use different technologies to provide a valid solution to problems typical of the transport sector and, more generally, of monitoring systems to reduce shipping costs and time latencies and offer the best service to customers.
In the field of goods transport, monitoring a high current limit on “pure” localisation systems involves simply knowing where devices are; through hardware specially designed for ATS, users can add various components to display information in the system, such as the load status of trailers, or the type of transport being performed (i.e. identifying the type of trailer attached to a vehicle).
