Yesterday truvami GmbH (in incorporation), based in Zürich, Switzerland, launched its highly flexible end-to-end tracking solution for multi-purpose use, primarily for B2B business applications. The tiny-sized trackers, that work seamlessly indoor and outdoor, integrate best-in-class technologies from the IoT, wireless communications and cloud networking domains.
truvami started as a joint project between Swisscom Broadcast AG, Berne (CH), and electronics engineering company Miromico AG, Zurich (CH), to develop a tracking solution that integrates a unique design with very small form-factor that can geolocate assets, workers and animals both inside buildings and in outdoor environments. The solution leverages the LoRaWAN wireless network operated by Swisscom Broadcast, a hosted cloud application for dashboarding, device-management and configuration as well as the cutting-edge design of all electronics at smallest PCB footprint provided by Miromico.
“Each of our trackers have unique features that are required by many customers for their use cases. One of these features is the unique small form-factor which is key for certain applications”, says Chiara Koopmans, Managing Director of truvami. ‘’When trackers have to be attached to assets, like boxes, crates and pallets as used in transport-logistics, the usual GPS-trackers are too large to be attached to such assets. In addition, our truvami tag S tracker has rechargeable batteries, which will last long and can easily be recharged.”
Swisscom Broadcast AG is providing solutions to its customers that leverage networking and software applications available within the Swisscom Group. One of these assets is the Swisscom LPN (Low Power Network), which is based on LoRaWAN wireless protocol, and provides high international coverage through roaming with other LoRaWAN network operators in the world. Chiara Koopmans, Managing Director of truvami explains: “The truvami trackers can also be used by companies that prefer to deploy a private LoRaWAN network.’’
truvami was launched at the largest LoRaWAN event in the world, i.e. The Things Conference in Amsterdam, where Managing Director Chiara Koopmans delivered a keynote speech.
