The latest edition of Qualcomm’s Trailer Tracks 210 (TT210) includes a solar charging system to maximize battery life and unit uptime.

An untethered trailer tracking platform, the new TT210 includes one-piece hardware configuration for easy installation and offers timely information about the location and status of trailers for more efficient planning, enhanced productivity and improved security.

TT210 is a stand-alone trailer tracking platform that monitors both tethered and untethered trailers independent of truck-based mobile systems.

Reporting includes the location and status of the trailers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico and integrates seamlessly with Qualcomm’s MCP100, MCP110, MCP200 and legacy mobile fleet management solutions.

According to Qualcomm, the system offers:

  • Onboard geofencing. The built-in intelligence of the TT210 platform receives and stores geofence parameters, frequently communicating location information and allowing the unit to accurately compare its whereabouts to the geofence coordinates set by the customer. TT210’s onboard geofencing feature quickly identifies when a vehicle enters and exits a geofence, allowing the fleet to take action immediately. The platform does not require the host software to calculate whether a geofence has been breached, so more accurate and timely reporting can occur.
  • Connects and disconnects: When leveraging connectivity with Qualcomm’s in-cab unit, TT210 delivers frequent and detailed reporting on trailer connects and disconnects at no extra cost.

“To be profitable, fleet managers must ensure all resources are being used to maximum capacity and they can’t do that if they lack real-time insight where trailers are located, which ones are in-use and loaded versus empty,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “We listened to this customer feedback and designed the TT210 with improved capabilities to offer users critical, up-to-date information, using our proprietary onboard geofencing and advanced connect and disconnect technologies. In addition, to further improve power management and simplify unit installations, we embedded our solar charging system into the platform.”
