Qualcomm Inc., a provider of integrated wireless systems and services to transportation, logistics and service fleet companies, announced its new Trailer Tracks 210 (TT210) solution. The next-generation TT210 is designed to deliver timely information about the load status and location of trailers with enhanced features that improve the return on investment for fleets that incorporate trailer tracking into their operations, the company says.

TT210 is the successor to Qualcomm’s Trailer Tracks 200 (TT200) untethered trailer management solution and is slated for commercial availability in the first quarter of 2011. New features, according to the company, include:

  • An embedded solar panel and antenna;
  • Improved memory and processing power;
  • Superior coverage in Mexico, which is important to carriers that operate throughout the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) region;
  • A more compact design that enables simpler, less time-consuming installation; and
  • Bluetooth capability.
  • Qualcomm says that both TT210 and TT200 leverage the same Trailer Tracks host environment, so customers using either or both platforms will benefit from future host development and will manage their trailer assets from a single Web portal.

    Qualcomm also announced that it now is offering StarTrak’s ReeferTrak system for refrigerated transport to its customers. In addition to benefiting from the asset management capabilities of Qualcomm’s mobile information systems, refrigerated carriers will be provided with the ability to control, monitor and manage their reefer assets remotely and proactively, the companies say.

    The ReeferTrak system’s two-way logistical, monitoring and control capabilities now can provide Qualcomm customers the ability to monitor reefer location, as well as control the critical conditions of their refrigerated trailers throughout the shipping process. Fleets can track and locate their reefer assets, monitor and control fuel consumption, and control the reefer’s operation remotely with capabilities such as start and stop, change set point and initiating a defrost.
