FOX Lite

Fox Lite is AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) device enabling satellite vehicle monitoring and supervision of its status, defined parameters, measurement and detection of important events.
Vehicle data are transferred through mobile telecommunication network (GSM/GPRS) and Internet enabling the user to track and control his vehicles at any moment. It is designed for private or professional use, for monitoring of only one vehicle or the whole fleet. Monitoring is performed by computer or mobile phone connected to Internet. Device configuration can be done remotely through SMS messages and GPRS service, or locally using serial port. Expense optimization of GPRS traffic is achieved by double set of parameters for device operation in local network and roaming.

Main functions
  • Satellite vehicle locating, tracking and mapping in real-time
  • Automatic monitoring of vehicle statuses and important events, and reporting by GPRS and SMS
  • Immediate alarming about critical statuses and emergency

Functional characteristics
  • Satellite vehicle monitoring using GPS/GLONASS
  • Configurable smart algorithm for GPS data sending
  • Sending events caused by digital inputs or changes in statuses of the vehicle
  • Instant data transfer on vehicle position and statuses on user request
  • Sending events in real time, or logging and sending data at predefined time period or at predefined time of the day
  • Logger capacity more than 60.000 records
  • SMS alert
  • XML, binary, auth+ack binary and encrypted sending formats
  • Backup server IP address
  • Calculation of distance traveled by vehicle and sending this information together with GPS data
  • Calculation of vehicle maximum speed
  • Driver identification using iButton
  • Driver identification using RFID card
  • C-Drive information
  • Shock/acceleration sensor. In power save mode, shock/acceleration sensor detects mechanical shock and wakes up device from power save mode. In normal operation mode it detects vehicle crash event and obtain C-Drive information
  • Vehicle engine RPM measurement
  • Vehicle fuel level control using analog and digital sensors
  • Vehicle fuel consumption control using fuel flow meter
  • Temperature measurement using additional Geneko temperature sensors
