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.
Connect to almost any vehicle on the road with a variety of cable options.
In addition to GPS tracking, the tracker actively reads and reports engine diagnostics, fuel data, driver behavior and temperature data, the Piccolo Plus provides visibility into specialized, on-board equipment such as PTO status.
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.
The Piccolo Plus acts as a gateway, for easy-to-deploy and affordable active RFID tags for asset tracking and wireless sensors for temperature monitoring.
