About TransCore's Sense & Track Trailer Tracking
TransCore's Sense & Track mobile terminal is one of GlobalWave's family of compact satellite communication devices. Using a two-way protocol, it sends reports, receives commands, and can be polled throughout North America. It utilizes a third generation GlobalWave satellite modem that allows for fast GPS fixes with an accuracy of 35 feet or better and capable of providing location information in less than a minute, among the fastest response time in the industry.
GlobalWave satellite trailer tracking products are the most rugged and power efficient available today. TransCore's untethered tracking solutions are capable of providing up to six (6) years of service on a single integrated battery pack and are easy to install.
With full sensor suite capability the Sense & Track terminal is able to show loaded/empty status and provide data from other monitored systems such as load temperature and tire inflation. By adding cargo and door sensors, immediate alert notification can be sent when trailer doors are opened or closed along with empty/full load status information enhancing security for both the load and trailer, including reduction of theft.
With three ground control stations providing service to five continents, the GlobalWave network supports customers worldwide including more than 600 commercial fleets throughout North America, the U.S. Department of Defense, and powers TransCore's 3sixty fleet management services.
