A partnership between Turkish telematics company Arvento Mobile Systems and Swiss wireless connectivity firm U-Blox has led to the launch of a vehicle tracking system.
 
The IMT.x1 uses U-Box positioning technology to deliver high levels of positioning sensitivity and accuracy. It has a six-axis gyro sensor that can sense three-dimensional movement caused by emergency acceleration, panic braking, and directional yaw and drift.
 
With connectivity options including dual Can bus and Bluetooth, the system is also e-call compatible and captures and provides data for accident analysis and other vehicle tracking functions. The system also uses an Arm-based microcontroller.
 
“This latest launch is yet another product of a successful, eight-year strategic partnership between Arvento and U-Blox,” said Özer Hıncal, Arvento’s general manager. “U-Blox is more than a supplier. As a global leader in the IoT industry providing high-performance IoT modules, platforms and support services, U-Blox is our trusted partner, working closely with us to address customer demands and issues.”
 
As with 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 modules.
 
The development of the IMT.x1 aligns with Arvento’s vision and mission as a developer of fleet telematics and vehicle tracking devices and will be available from next month.
 
With headquarters in Thalwil, Switzerland, U-Blox has offices in Europe, Asia and the USA.
 
Arvento Mobile Systems specialises in designing, developing and manufacturing fleet telematics systems and IoT products. It has more than 78,000 clients and its technology and products are being used in more than 895,000 vehicles on three continents.
