Orbcomm Inc., a global satellite data communications company focused on two-way Machine-to-Machine communications, and MobileNet Inc. a global solutions provider specializing in heavy equipment telematics applications, last week announced that Doosan Infracore America has selected MobileNet’s TrakPak application as the GPS system to be included as standard equipment on new qualifying Doosan DX Series excavators and DL Series wheel loaders.
“The TrakPak system developed by MobileNet utilizes Orbcomm’s global two-way data communications capability to monitor equipment conditions, ranging from location, work hours, geo fencing, unauthorized use alerts, fuel consumption, and productivity, among others,” said Bill Purdie, CEO of MobileNet.
MobileNet’s TrakPak application is an onboard vehicle monitoring and communications system that helps heavy equipment users improve operational efficiency by remotely monitoring machine usage. The system tracks and communicates key productivity and performance information, which can be accessed through an online website, providing a detailed examination of individual machine’s operation. The system uses ORBCOMM’s global low Earth orbit satellite constellation for communications, relaying critical positioning and operational data from the machine to the MobileNet back office application.
Orbcomm is a global satellite data communications company, focused on Machine-to-Machine communications. Its customers include Caterpillar Inc., Doosan Infracore America, General Electric, Hitachi Construction Machinery, Komatsu Ltd., and Volvo Group.
MobileNet provides custom mobile data solutions that include the integrated hardware, software, and wireless communications components needed for a complete global fleet monitoring system. MobileNet markets its technology directly to the railway and utility industries, and to heavy equipment manufacturers such as Doosan through private labeling.
