u-blox , a provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, and Arvento Mobile Systems, a vehicle telematics and fleet management technology company, today announced the imminent launch of the new imt.x1 vehicle tracking system.
Arvento’s imt.x1 is described as highly differentiated from other vehicle tracking devices on the market, thanks to its 6-axis Gyro sensor which can sense 3-dimensional movement caused by emergency acceleration, panic braking and directional yaw and drift. With connectivity options including dual CANBus and Bluetooth, the system is also eCall compatible and captures and provides data for accident analysis and other vehicle tracking functions. The system also uses the next generation Arm® based microcontroller.
This latest launch is yet another product of a successful, 8-year strategic partnership between Arvento and u-blox. “u-blox is more than a supplier,” said Özer Hıncal, Arvento’s general manager. “As a global leader in the IoT industry providing high-performance IoT modules, platforms, and support services, u-blox is our trusted solutions partner, working closely with us to address customer demands and issues.”
As for previous Arvento products, collaboration with u-blox was a key factor in the imt.x1 product development process and the system’s high position sensitivity and accuracy are based on integration of u-blox’s 2G, 4G and 5G-ready cellular modules as well as GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) modules.
The development of the imt.x1 aligns well with Arvento’s vision and mission as a developer of advanced fleet telematics and vehicle tracking devices and will be available from August 2019, according to today’s press release.
u‑blox solutions are designed to let people, vehicles, and machines determine their precise position and communicate wirelessly over cellular and short range networks. With a broad portfolio of chips, modules, and a growing ecosystem of product supporting data services, the company is positioned to empower its customers to develop innovative solutions for the Internet of Things, quickly and cost-effectively. With headquarters in Thalwil, Switzerland, the company is globally present with offices in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
