How the System Works

LocoTrack HGR4 is a rechargeable device designed for supply chain applications. The LocoTrack HGR4 provides location reporting as well as monitoring accurate temperature (NIST traceable), light, movement, tip, impact and shock levels. The LocoTrack HGR4 will regularly report its location, upload sensor logs, and receive any changes to its configuration settings. This cycle is continuous unless the sensors cross preset thresholds, upon which the device will send an additional ‘alert report’ regarding its condition. To ensure that the latency of alerting is low, sensors are monitored every 10 seconds.

In addition to providing standalone protection, the LocoTrack HGR4 is interoperable with other Loco products. As such, the LocoTrack HGR4 can read data from LocoTags, and act as a gateway to communicate tag data.

Design Considerations

The system has been developed with end-to-end security in mind and protection against replay and masquerade attacks is provided as standard. Each LocoTrack HGR4 device has a unique key programmed at manufacture and all communication is authenticated and restricted to the Loco servers. Communications can be completed over the cellular networks or via pre-configured WiFi access points.

The LocoTrack HGR4 devices are powered by Loco – a hybrid GSM, Wi-Fi location engine, which enables indoor and outdoor operation whilst minimising power consumption.

Installation and Asset Association

LocoTrack HGR4 is provided pre-configured with default settings. All that is required is to turn on the device, and associate the device with the asset/consignment it is being attached to. To simplify this association process, each LocoTrack HGR4 has a unique identifier that is presented as a number and a barcode on its label. Association is completed by scanning this barcode and entering details regarding the asset/consignment. This can be completed directly on the locoaware.com Web Portal or via the ‘Loco Assets’ mobile application. Once associated, LocoAware allows the user to search for a specific asset/consignment.

We provide technologies and solutions for a huge variety of tracking, monitoring, analysis and automation uses. For more information about what System Loco can do for you, please get in touch.
