PDF I give information :-)

Since the 1st of July an Infomobility system, using innovative intelligent information panels, is available. This information panel is a highly sophisticated device which communicates, through wireless GSM/GPRS systems, with any public vehicle suitably equipped with a satellite location system (GPS). Thanks to this device it is possible to know exactly, at any moment, where a vehicle's is.

PDF Hazardous goods (ADR) require satellite

Gps control will be compulsory starting from 2007. Teq can supply a system which is already compliant. Monitoring the road transport of tanks containing hazardous goods is the latest need to grant safety, as per article 1.10.3 Adr 2005. It is therefore necessary to equip tanks with a GPS location system which constantly informs the operations centre about the vehicle's position and that is able to acquire data for the fleet management.

PDF Brains on board

Teq, electronis for automotive: 20 years of experience in the field of automotive electronics. Teq, located in Barbengo, near Lugano, was born in 1986 as supplier of systems for exceptional transport vehicles and for self-propelled machinery used in scrap metal yards. Mr. Alessandro Prioglio, managing director of the company, explains: "In the early Nineties we had the intuition that CAN protocol (Controller Area Network) would be the future: it actually allowed to do without cables. The first applications were developed with Mauri in Desio: this is how the first multiplex system equipped bus based on CAN was born."

PDF Electronics makes its own way - the fab 4 of fleet management

Multiplex net, already present on all heavy trucks, is now at its 2nd phase, i.e. easier communication outwards and data storage in one single format. Once upon a time, there was the so-called Controller area network, better known as Can bus or multiplex system. Later on, in the late Nineties, five of the most important European trucks contructors (Iveco, Man, Mercedes, Scania e Volvo), realized that those "telematic mini motorways" (i.e. multiplex nets) created on board of trucks needed something more which could allow the languages of different nets to be uniform: a standard.
