Intelligent Vehicle Tracking and Mobile Resource Management Device
Sierra Wireless' PinPoint XT is an intelligent device ideally suited for vehicle tracking, fleet management and telematics solutions. The PinPoint XT features ALEOS, the embedded intelligence available exclusively on the Sierra Wireless line of AirLink products. Coupled with the AceWare suite of remote management tools, ALEOS lowers total cost of ownership by simplifying device setup and provisioning and provides customers with comprehensive remote configuration and diagnostic capabilities.
To support comprehensive vehicle telemetry, the PinPoint XT features a full suite of I/O ports, including four digital inputs, three analog inputs and two relay outputs. The accompanying AceWare suite of device management and configuration tools has also been enhanced to support the new event reporting feature of ALEOS, enabling PinPoint XT users to have full control of the data collected and transmitted based on the occurrence of an exception, minimizing the amount of data passed over the network. This feature allows the PinPoint XT to perform intelligent decision making at the end-point, giving customers robust control over the data from their mobile assets. Finally, the administrator can select from several delivery options, including email and SMS, enabling real time notification to the proper personnel.
By leveraging the highly efficient location based services protocol feature built into ALEOS, third-party application providers can more thoroughly integrate GPS tracking applications with the PinPoint XT. This feature allows application providers to access the full complement of data, including digital and analog input status, odometer readings, low power state information, and network signal strength from the PinPoint XT, and enables seamless incorporation of both location and event data into their application.
