An advanced cargo logistics tracker from DOT Telematik will feature u-blox GNSS and cellular receivers.

DOT’s X-Rayl Solar Pointer is a solar-powered telematics box aimed at rail and container tracking, designed to withstand rough handling and provide a secure asset-to-cloud data link for telematics and sensor data.

The Austrian telematics provider chose a u-blox LARA-R2 cellular module and SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver to transmit and receive data concurrently for the X-Rayl.

“We were impressed with the quality and reliability of u-blox’s SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver. After evaluating the LARA-R211 LTE Cat 1 modem with 2G fallback, we decided to source our tracker’s cellular modem from u-blox as well,” said Philipp Tarter, CEO of DOT.

“u-blox has proven to be a highly reliable partner, delivering high quality solutions that add value to our products.”

Drazen Drinic, principal product strategy cellular product centre at u-blox, welcomed the announcement.

“We’re very pleased that DOT chose to design our LARA-R211 LTE Cat 1 modem into the latest edition of their solar tracker. The telematics market is one of our key markets and we are proud to be part of such a highly competitive cargo tracking solution,” he said.
