G-Trac developed our self-drive Technology specifically for use in car sharing services.
Our solution has been successfully implemented in hundreds of vehicles, enabling our customers to offer reliable and highly automated car sharing solutions.
The flexibility of our self-drive Technology platform allows you to implement innovative business models.
G-trac self-drive Technology will work in almost every vehicle with central door locking and is independent of engine type (conventional fuel, hybrid or electric). The system’s intelligent power management guarantees minimal power requirements, which allows for long standby times between trips.
• Access options
The vehicle can be accessed with standard RFID cards or standard cellphones.
• Vehicle key deposit
The vehicle keys are electronically secured and stored in the vehicle. Optionally, a multi-level ignition interruption and PIN access can be implemented to increase security. In case of unauthorized use, the vehicle can be remotely immobilized and located via GPS.
• Self-Drive 2.0
Our flexible workflows allow for the configuration of innovative business models, such as spontaneous use, one-way use, and flexible vehicle locations.
• GPS localization
GPS localization is the technology behind our Self-Drive 2.0 functionality. It also provides optional vehicle tracking (if required and activated).
• Online connections
Communication with our servers can be established via GSM or GPRS. Intelligent fallback strategies allow communication by SMS or even autonomous operation if higher-level connectivity breaks down or is not available.
• Vehicle data processing
G-trac Self-Drive Technology can access large amounts of vehicle data provided via GPS Black Box, such as distance driven, odometer readings, and fuel level. Alternatively, distance tracking is available through analog signal or wireless mileage recording.
• Fuel Monitoring
With integrated fuel sensor installed, the vehicles can conveniently be monitored by the user.
• Fleet management
Large fleets can more efficiently be managed with remote access, for example for configuration and trouble-shooting. Firmware updates can be installed wirelessly without vehicle downtime.
