Description of the system

The StTr®1000′s onboard system, which is our original solution, built on our long-term experience, is mounted on a vehicle in a location that is not visible to the user, and therefore its location is difficult to detect when attempted to steal or sabotage. The onboard unit StTr®1000 reads the position and speed (and other parameters according to individual customer requirements) of the vehicle or machine using the GPS satellite navigation system. The monitored vehicle data transmitted online using the GPRS communication medium in the GSM network is collected on the server and made available to NiTcar system users. Thanks to this form of communication, vehicle data is transmitted in real time, so the current position of all vehicles is available on the server.

Onboard unit StTr®GSM 1000 has:

  • Integrated GSM / GPRS module with GPRS function
  • 2 digital inputs, 1 analogue input, 1 digital output
  • (expandable up to 8 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs)
  • Communication capabilities in SMS, GPRS mode
  • buffer of 16,000 items (expandable to 8,000,000 items),
  • Built-in backup power.

GPS and GSM antennas are connected to the controller and additional sensors, such as.:

  • engine operation, switch on ignition, robbery, burglary,
  • open loading area, opening / closing door,
  • connecting / disconnecting the semi-trailer,
  • open the fuel cap,
  • temperature in the cargo area, battery voltage,
  • presence of a trailer,
  • fuel level,
  • Other vehicle state sensors according to individual solutions.

The StTr ® -GSM 1000 controller can work with the contactless reader and the driver terminal and other devices equipped with an RS485 interface.The reader allows you to verify the drivers currently driving the vehicle. It is possible to work with the vehicle alarm system.

Real-time monitoring allows you to observe any vehicle parameters, and moreover, it allows you to make changes to the on-board parameters and communicate with the driver by bi-directional communication.

Vehicle data is automatically transmitted at a specified frequency. Vehicle information is sent “on-line”. All events identified as alarms are transmitted without delay and periodic information at the frequency selected by the client. For example, when transporting dangerous cargo or high-risk cargo, the data can be sent up to several seconds, in the case of transporting other goods or monitoring sales representatives, eg every 30 – 60 seconds. By default, data is sent every 5 to 30 seconds while traveling according to vehicle speed and every 5 – 15 minutes at stop

In addition to the above equipment, the transmission system is a communication server that performs direct communication with location, receiving and processing information received on-line, and central servers and databases, a map server – a set of servers that support a map and customer queries. This modern, authoritative, proven and operational data transmission system, with the ability to extend the dedicated communications server in its own Surveillance Center, provides low cost GPRS transmission.

Access to current locations and archive data stored on the server to display information about the selected car and to display vehicle position on the digital map is possible with the help of a dedicated NiTcar application installed on an unlimited number of devices.

The customer, when logged in, gets access to the vehicles assigned to him. This may be one specific group (eg marketing department) or all vehicles. One client can have a freely defined number of access accounts with different privileges. Vehicle data, location data, status of monitored inputs and alarms are displayed in tabular form, the current vehicle position is displayed on the map. The user can use the additional options to filter data by time intervals, normal and / or alarm states, vehicle speeds, or sensor inputs. It may also include these figures, along with the average speed and number of kilometers traveled, as a text report. Vehicle data, location data, status of monitored inputs, and alarms can be compiled in the form of reports that allow for subsequent analysis of individual vehicle routes and pre-designated verification. Reports can be created by selected criteria for the driver and / or vehicle e.g. .: the distance traveled, the speed range of speeding, the states of mounted sensors. The user can use the additional options to filter data by time intervals, normal and / or alarm states, vehicle speeds, or sensor inputs. It may also include these figures, along with the average speed and number of kilometers traveled, as a text report. In addition, it is possible to generate logistical reports from driver positions and working hours. The reports allow you to analyze: the vehicle’s routing, the places and times of stops, the length of the driving periods, the driver’s working time, driving parameters, other events according to individual arrangements. All reports can be printed, exported to other systems or emailed. Using a dedicated NiTcar application makes it easy to carry out ongoing vehicle tracking operations and navigate on the digital map. The system includes digital maps of Poland (500 city plans) and Europe (general map with a fragment of Asia and maps of 18 EU countries with city maps). The map server is an integrated part of the NiTcar system, providing high performance and speed of map display. On the map can be displayed all selected vehicles to monitor or one vehicle or their designated group. Maps can be scaled automatically relative to the displayed positions, there are also a number of navigation tools that allow you to quickly scale the map and adjust to a specific area. It is possible to save and print maps. The program constantly draws speed charts, sensors statuses. The user, from all available vehicles, can choose those that he wants to observe on a regular basis. Map shows the route traveled by the vehicle in the form of points. Details of the position: vehicle position (text description of position: town, municipality, province), ignition status, speed, distance traveled in km, etc., are displayed in tabular form on the panel after selecting a position from the list or pointing it on the map.
