Exploring Vence, Agtech’s Latest Hack
The Hacking Satellite Series isn’t always about conceptualizing our own products for the future of satellite. This month, we’re going to take a quick look at a pretty cool product that has come to market for livestock farmers called Vence, which (according to TechCrunch) recently raised $2.7M to pursue its goals. In a strange way, Vence is a case study for the satellite industry’s potential role in... More
The last few articles from the Hacking Satellite Series have been related to autonomous vehicles and the opportunities they will create within the satellite ecosystem. As a brief departure, this is a great opportunity for us to take a quick look at the foundation for the next few articles in that series by examining M2M (Machine to Machine) from a core level. Is it really any different from IoT (Internet of Things) or “smart” technologies?... More
Implementing a telematics solution into your fleet of vehicles allows you to improve safety, improve sustainability, streamline operations, and reduce overall costs. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, among other goals, the US government has established various Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans, with Fleet Management being one of the primary focal points. It is no wonder, as the Federal Fleet alone is comprised of... More
GSatTrack can allow you to leverage your hardware device's General Purpose I/O ports to maximum effectiveness. Configuration is fast, easy, and intuitive, bringing to light another reason to choose GSatTrack as your default tracking portal regardless of the hardware you currently employ.
General purpose input/output (GPIO) is a common feature across many models of tracking hardware. GPIOs allow users to decide how the physical ports or pins on a... More
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an enhanced method of securing your account with GSatTrack. Once configured and enabled, two forms of identification are then required to log into your account:
A trusted device
Requiring two different forms of identification – something you know and something in your possession – increases the security of your account, dramatically reducing the chances of an unauthorized party accessing it.... More
Tracking providers often highlight their versatility in getting data into their systems by accepting a wide variety of data formats and protocols from a multitude of devices. GSatTrack is no exception to this, allowing one to integrate hundreds of different device types under a single platform. The flip-side, however, to getting data into a singular system is often how one can get data back out of the system in order to integrate with legacy,... More
GSatTrack has dedicated mobile apps for tracking the most popular mobile devices – iOS and Android phones and tablets. Both apps can be downloaded from the appropriate app store – either Google Play or iTunes by simply searching for GSatTrack.
These mobile apps have been published for a while now and allow you to track specific mobile devices on the GSatTrack platform.
Past vs Present
What’s new (and interesting!) is that we now support... More
Rapid technological advancements have swelled into a tsunami of change resulting in great shifts within the overall IoT, M2M, and satellite-related industries. Business models and operations are undergoing fast changes, while increasingly revolutionary solutions are becoming available. One cannot help to think about potential opportunities that were previously unattainable as well as nascent possibilities that still escape one’s imagination.... More
Alerts are a powerful feature of any tracking and reporting platform. Alerts allow users to be notified in real-time about specific conditions met for an asset or group of assets that is noteworthy in some way. And often alerts are used to indicate issues that require a real-world response whether immediate or otherwise – such as when a driver is operating a vehicle recklessly, a driver needs emergency assistance, or a vehicle is simply due...
