LocationXS web service begun by Teydo
Aug 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Teydo BV has launched its LocationXS web service, a flexible mapping system for Teydo's partners servicing the Location Based Services (LBS) market. Location XS is built on Teydo's FleetOnline web service and Trimble's trimTrac locator, but branded as LocationXS.
The TrimTrac locator comes as a battery-operated GPS unit with an internal motion sensor, GPS, and GSM antenna. Internal batteries last for 90 days in normal use; for more permanent installations the TrimTrac can be connected to a battery using the Vehicle Adapter Module (VAM)
Partners sell a TrimTrac locator to an end user and open an account for the end user on the LocationXS web site. All TrimTrac units require an annual subscription for the wireless service for data communication and LocationXS access.
Once registered, the end user account is set up automatically. All TrimTrac transactions are charged to the end user in the LocationXS account. Partners charge their own rates to install and mount the TrimTrac VAM.
Once operational, the TrimTrac locator receives satellite signals from the US government's GPS satellites and reports its status, position, speed, and direction over any of the four GSM mobile networks in North America (AT&T Wireless, Cingular, T-Mobile, and Microcell/Rogers)
