For the third consecutive year, Accent Systems has presented their services and their new, innovative and successful projects to the world in the Mobile World Congress 2017.
Track&Go, innovation and service
This year, we’ve bet on the update of “Track&Go”, a project we’ve developed together with Samsonite, Vodafone and In The Pocket, in which we’ve created the hardware. It’s a device designed to be put into your travel or business bag, with the objective of having our assets always located in real time. This updating of the project works with NB-IOT, a new and promising technology.
The solution is based on two principles. First of all, the proximity alerts that allows you to receive a smartphone notification when your bag gets out of your range. This will enable you to confidently leave your luggage in the dedicated compartment, while still enjoying your trip without any stress, for instance when travelling by train or plane.
Moreover, this new proof of concept test with NB-IoT will look into the future possibilities of geolocation. It would make it possible to track your valuables, anytime, anyplace. In case your bag gets lost, you will be able to see its current location and the necessary contact details to get your belongings back, if applicable.
The NB-IOT deployment
This new version of “Track&Go” solution, will work with Narrowband-IOT (NB-IOT), a technology that aims to connect intelligent devices that are at a great distance, using less power so that can accommodate smaller batteries with longer life, and with less costs for the final user.
Accent Systems has not only developed the hardware part of the project, but also has act as consultant of Samsonite and In The Pocket to explore NB-IoT as the best technology to handle the next phase of the Track & Go project (providing geolocation capabilities). Our company is investing, as well as in product development, in research in new technologies and our team has wide expertise in IOT technologies.
The result of excellence
“Track&Go” solution has caught the attention and interest of the attendees and, most specially, of FoneArena, an online platform that has rewarded the project with the “Best connected device” award of MWC 2017.
In Accent Systems, we are always betting on the innovations and new technologies, and the development of this solutions is an example of this. All our team expresses gratitude for the prize and the confidence!
