Answer All Your Needs With One Telematics Device​

The most innovative and complete GPS Telematics Gateway providing real-time visibility into location status, with an unparalleled set of features including wireless sensor data, built-in WiFi Hotspot and ​ELD-ready for HOS Compliance.

The Piccolo Plus functions as a in-cabin WiFi Hotspot and wireless router allowing communication of any mobile device to the internet. The major advantage is that it lets you use one sim card, one cellular bill for GPS tracking, ELD, dispatch and messaging.

Wireless RFTags

The Piccolo Plus acts as a gateway- creating an easy to deploy, affordable and highly scalable wireless network of Active RFID Tags for temperature monitoring and asset tracking, delivering valuable data and insights online in real-time.

Passive RFID Reader

In addition to its advanced telematics functionalities, the Piccolo Plus can also function as a passive RFID reader for custom solutions such as student tracking, driver ID, container tracking and auto complete for the waste industry.

How it Works

Plug & Play Installation With Pass Through Harness

Connect to almost any vehicle on the road with a variety of cable options.

Mode of Operation

Actively reads and reports engine diagnostics, fuel data, driver behavior and temperature data. In addition, the Piccolo Plus provides visibility into specialized, on-board equipment such as PTO status.

WiFi Hotspot

Acting as an in-cabin WiFi router, the Piccolo Plus allows communication of any mobile device to the internet. The major advantage is that it lets you use one sim card- one cellular bill for GPS tracking, HOS, dispatch and messaging.

RFLink Wireless RFID Sensors

The Piccolo Plus acts as a gateway, for easy-to-deploy and affordable active RFID tags for asset tracking and wireless sensors for temperaure monitoring.

Built-In WiFi Hotspot

The Piccolo Plus functions as a in-cabin WiFi Hotspot and wireless router allowing communication of any mobile device to the internet. The major advantage is that it lets you use one sim card, one cellular bill for GPS tracking, ELD, dispatch and messaging.

Wireless Temperature Monitoring

Supports up to 50 RFTags for high-accuracy temperature monitoring of +/- 0.9°F (0.5°C) when packaged with an external digital temp sensor or an accuracy of +/- 1.8°F (1°C) with the integrated temperature sensor.

Passive RFID

For student tracking, driver ID, container tracking and auto complete for the waste industry.

Engine Diagnostics

Reads CANbus OBDII, K-Line, J1939, and J1708 data such as: fuel consumption, oil pressure, distance travelled, RPM.

Wired Temperature Monitoring

Monitor up to 6 different compartments with an accuracy of ±0.5°C, and easily configure the Piccolo Plus to report and alert on temperature readings periodically and on deviations

Driver Behavior

Detects and reports extreme driving behavior such as sudden acceleration, sudden lane crossing, sharp turns and sudden braking.

RS232

Flexible RS-232 interface allowing easy integration of external devices.

Garmin Interface

For Dispatch and 2-way messaging

Driver ID

Authorize drivers to start vehicle with driver identification via Dallas keys or passive RFID keys.

Back-Up Battery

Integrated rechargeable back-up battery. Battery level transmitted with every GPS data. Battery saving mode – automatically switches to deep sleep mode when the engine is turned off and automatically wakes-up when the engine is turned on or on tilt or vibration.

IO's

2 digital inputs, 1 digital output and 1 analog input for event logs such as engine on/off, vibration alarm, door open/close.

Auto Event Send

Stores and forwards up to 5000 events and sends them automatically when unit is back in cellular coverage.
