Case study: Development of system for asset tracking without using GPS

Biotech company from Germany wanted a system with software and hardware that will enable them to track package with stem cells from hospital to stem cell bank.

In order to do this, it was required to develop software solution and integrate with hardware tracking device.

For position tracking, GSM signal has been used, since it provides enough precision (within few 100 meters) and appropriate signal strength inside strong concrete buildings (which is not the case with GPS). Public database of GSM stations has been integrated with cloud software and used to determine the package location.
For position displaying, OpenStreet maps have been used.

ARS did the following:
– Development of software
– Hardware integration and configuration
– Firmware updates
