Piccolo Plus

Piccolo Plus IoT Gateway​

The Industry's Most Innovative, Modular & Complete GPS Telematics Gateway

*available on 4g lte networks worldwide

The most innovative plug and play rugged fleet GPS tracker with WIFI hotspot, available on 4G LTE CAT-1 networks worldwide. The tracker provides trucking fleets with GPS vehicle tracking, vehicle diagnostics, geofence alerts, ELD/Elogs/IFTA ready, temperature monitoring, dual facing dash cam support and much more. All told, a very versatile truck fleet GPS tracking device, excellent for trucking fleets of all sizes .

GPS Tracker with WiFi Hotspot

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.

Reduced Monthly Charges

Fleet management, ELD and camera functionalities use ONE single SIM which eliminates the need for multiple SIM cards with multiple charges and enables the use of the less expensive WIFI tablet and WIFI Camera .

Plug & Play Integration

Plug & Play integration into any 3rd
party application via API or TCP/IP
Integration

How it works

telematics GPS vehicle tracking hardware device

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

The Dual Facing DashCam captures driver behavior events detected by the Piccolo Plus: sudden brake , sudden acceleration , sudden lane crossing sudden turns. Supports up to 2 additional cameras.

Functions as a wireless router enabling the camera system along with the HOS tablet for ELD to communicate through the Piccolo Plus, routing the data to the internet over 4G LTE cellular connection.

In addition to it’s many telematics functionalities, various IoT BLE tags have been integrated with the Piccolo Plus IoT. This functionality allows the Piccolo Plus IoT to act as an IoT Gateway which is used to process and forward the IoT data to the server- for multiple asset tracking applications and wireless sensors for temperature monitoring.

Compliant with Federal, Texas Oil, Texas Overweight, Agriculture exemption, California, Canadian DOT and Mexico rulings with auto-switch based on location.

Product Features

Modular, easy to integrate and inexpensive to customize to your needs

Install Wireless Links Fleet Dash Cam for fleet safety and monitoring of extreme driving behavior such as sudden acceleration, sudden lane crossing, sharp turns and sudden braking

The Piccolo Plus functions as an in-cabin WiFi Hotspot and wireless router allowing communication of any mobile device to the internet.

Various IoT BLE tags have been integrated with the Piccolo Plus IoT. This functionality allows the Piccolo Plus IoT to act as an IoT Gateway which is used to process and forward the IoT data to the server- for an all around connected fleet.

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

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.

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

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.

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

Highly compressed OTA, UDP communication packaged with MidLink Middleware and “Plug & Play” API or DLL for quick integration into any third party software

3 digital inputs, 2 digital output and 1 analog input for event logs such as engine on/off, vibration alarm, door open/close, are sent with the time stamp of the event.

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

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