This project includes several mobile applications. Trackunit A / S provides tracking services and facilities for a fleet of cars and other mobile means. Their services are popular among medium and large businesses from a variety of industries - construction, urban transport, taxis, trucking, etc.

At the time of the project implementation Trackunit A / S employees already had an established serial production of devices, however the company there was a need to expand the range of its services through the development of Android and iOS applications.

BUSINESS-TASK

This project includes several mobile applications. Trackunit A / S provides tracking services and facilities for a fleet of cars and other mobile means. Their services popular among middle and big business various industries - construction, urban transport, taxis, trucking, etc.

At the time of the project, Trackunit A / S staff already had serial production of devices, but the company there was a need to expand the range of its services through development of iOS and Android applications.

SOLUTION

The solution offered by us consisted of several mobile applications: fixing the coordinates of the vehicle to send them to the server and receiving these coordinates from the server, as well as displaying them to the user on the map.

The first application has a minimal interface, which is mainly needed to identify the user and configure the application. It reads GPS-coordinates of the device at certain (adjustable) intervals and sends to the server data about the coordinates of the device, the speed of movement, the direction of movement, etc.

An application that receives coordinates from the server (tracking application) has a more convenient interactive interface. It shows the location of the car on the map and allows you to set special warning signals, for example, if the car has left a certain area. In addition, the application provides statistics on the use of the vehicle: data on average speed, distance traveled, temperature status on board, etc. In fact, this application is a set of a series of applications: there are versions for iOS and Android, as well as several versions with various design variants corresponding to the brands of Trackunit A / S subsidiaries, as well as client companies.

ADVANTAGES

АOutsourcing of the project helped to reduce development costs and possible risks associated with development. This expansion of services also helped to improve efficiency and expand the company's presence in the market. In addition, the mobile application Paver Operator Unit allows not only to optimize the work of operators of asphalt pavers, but also to predict the arrival of urban and suburban transport to stop, monitor the work of taxis and cargo delivery services, monitor coastal floating assets.

The mobile solution helped to reduce the cost of services and, as a result, expand the company's presence in the market, as the developed applications allowed to save Trackunit A / S customers from purchasing additional special equipment and to simplify the process of using the company's services: to acquire only necessary software and related services.

PRINCIPLES OF WORK AND THE USED TECHNOLOGIES
  • The application, fixing the coordinates of the, is a set of native mobile applications for iOS and Android that monitor the position of the car and send data to the server in JSON-request format.
  • Web services serve to obtain and transmit information about the location of cars in the format of JSON-requests.
  • The user web interface is a site with access to a personal cabinet, information on tracking and traffic statistics. The site has a convenient interface for monitoring vehicles in real time.
  • Tracking application is a set of native mobile applications for iOS and Android that receive data from web services in JSON-query format and display the position of cars on the map along with other statistics about the vehicle. Various notifications and notifications about different situations are also supported depending on the user settings.
  1. Objective-C, Xcode, iOS SDK.
  2. Java, Eclipse, Android SDK.
  3. Google maps, GPS system.
  4. Push notifications for iOS and Android.
