NEUDSTADT AM RUBENBURGE, Germany — A new locating device has been developed by Magnatec Technologie GmbH in Germany to facilitate monitoring and tracking of valuable shipments in transit.
The system, accommodated in a small housing, enables shipments to be located via the GSM mobile phone network and records the results on digital cards.
This means it does not suffer from the typical disadvantages of satellite-based GPS systems – for example having to be in the line of sight of at least three satellites. It can quickly be attached to containers or crates or unobtrusively slipped in with postal consignments or cardboard boxes.
