Where's Tim, and why you should care (arf)

Tim Hibbard posted this on August 30, 2005:

Using EnGraph's GPSParser, Air-Trak's Cloudberry AVL data and Google Maps, I built a web page that shows my real time location.

It took a little over an hour to put together. That shows the ease of EnGraph GPS Management tools and Google Maps.

Here's the page - www.timhibbard.com/wherestim.aspx


I'm sure you've heard of Google Maps, so let's dig into the other technologies.

From EnGraph:

EnGraph can quickly enable GPS tracking for your organization. Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology has become easier to implement and far less expensive. Let EnGraph show you how easy it is for any industry...

EnGraph can implement different levels of GPS/AVL technology to your organization. From passive GPS tracking with automated downloads to real-time AVL systems. Use integrated Messaging systems to communicate in real-time with MDT, PocketPC, or Motorola equipped vehicles....

Architecture #2) Real-Time AVL with Nextel Wireless and Cloudberry

For any size fleet, the Real-Time AVL with Nextel Wireless solution provides an affordable way to communicate with and monitor each vehicle in real-time. Nextel Phones or In-Vehicle platforms transmit GPS and other data through Nextel wireless networks to the Cloudberry® Data Center, which is then accessed through internet and displayed with EnGraph software.

The hardware and architecture for this solution is provided by Nextel and Cloudberry, a leading GPS tracking and communication system. The Cloudberry® GPS system gives managers real-time visibility and control of their mobile workers, vehicles, and assets to increase productivity, security, customer service, and profitability.

The Cloudberry® Nextel Phones platform enables you to track and message with your mobile workforce using Nextel GPS, Java-enabled phones running over the Nextel nationwide guaranteed all-digital wireless network.
The platform gives you accurate, up-to-the-minute information on employee locations, hours, and job statuses.

The Cloudberry® Nextel In-Vehicle platform is a rugged, vehicle-mounted unit enabling managers to track and communicate with their mobile employees through the Nextel nationwide guaranteed all-digital wireless network.
The platform offers a variety of unique security and communication features.


It turns out that Nextel themselves offer a number of GPS tracking solutions.

And it turns out that Verizon doesn't:

My phone says GPS. What does that mean? Can other people or agencies see where I am located?
Many of the phones sold by Verizon Wireless in 2002-2003 and 100% of the new handsets sold since December 31, 2003 are GPS-capable, which means there is a chipset in the phone that will help provide location information to a PSAP when a caller dials 911. The phone is not a stand-alone GPS device. The handset alone does not support or initiate any kind of individual tracking capability. The location-determining capability becomes functional after dialing 911 when the network is prompted to determine the mobiles' location.


From Cloudberry's perspective:

CLOUDBERRY PLATFORMS

With Cloudberry®, you can track and communicate with your mobile workforce using two hardware platforms: Nextel® GPS, Java-enabled phones and rugged Nextel In-Vehicle units that deliver always-on tracking, push-to-talk communications, and added security.

The Nextel Phone and Nextel In-Vehicle platforms run over Nextel’s nationwide guaranteed all-digital wireless network. When Nextel coverage is unavailable, both platforms can cost effectively provide 100% satellite coverage of North and Central America with the SatCom Upgrade module.

You can mix and match Cloudberry platforms and modules, scale them up to tens of thousands, and conveniently monitor and manage them from a single Cloudberry display.

Nextel Phones or In-Vehicle platforms transmit GPS and other data through satellite and Nextel wireless networks to the Cloudberry Data Center, which is then accessed via an Internet-connected PC.


Morpeth speculated on the possibilities:

Other possible applications: Pets? Children? Vehicles?

Actually, vehicles are already covered, either via something like the EnGraph solution or via a LoJack solution. Children and pets are an interesting application, although tracking of children could raise a number of privacy questions (does a parent have the right to track their teenager's whereabouts?) and abuse questions (what if someone intercepts the location and uses it to track down a particular minor)?

But no such restrictions occur for pets, and I'm sure that police agencies and rich pet-owners would love to be able to track Fido in case he (or she) runs away.
