Mobile equipment data tracking

Mini-Pod is a compact, features-rich system that allows owners or foremen to capture and conveniently use critical information from each individual machine so it can be used to the best advantage. Engineered specifically for heavy-service work environments, the wireless device can capture location, machine hours, idling vs. work logs, mileage and PTO time. Mini-Pod also facilitates the tracking of dispensed fluids, including fuel, engine oil, transmission,and hydraulic fluid, for every unit in the fleet.

Aggregated data is provided through a cellular connection. Information is collected passively, within a range of 300 ft. line-of-sight, and transmitted via secure radio link. GPS coordinates are stamped onto the record as hour data is collected. Captured information can then be accessed via email or web reports.

In addition to generating real-time information on key jobsite resources, Mini-Pod provides a means to prevent fuel theft and the unauthorized dispensing of fuel. It will also generate service alerts, thus maintenance.   — OEM Data Delivery, www.oemdd.com
