CargoObserver is a modular telematics unit with customized housing and functional variants depending on the needs of the application. With optional wireless sensors the system’s functionality can be extended further. The sensing and tracking device sends information over GSM for many years and is hence energy self-sufficient and maintenance free. The mission critical data is sent directly to a Web application or thanks to the open interfaces also to the IT system of the customer.
