omniSENSE - Pro


Some of the key features and benefits of the omniSENSE – Pro are given below. The omniSENSE – Pro is a customisable product, to suite the need of different kinds of customer needs and are available in several common variants.

Features & Benefits

DGPS Enabled Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) is an enhancement to Global Positioning System that provides improved location accuracy, from the 15-meter nominal GPS accuracy to about 10 cm in case of the best implementations.

DGPS uses a network of fixed, ground-based reference stations to broadcast the difference between the positions indicated by the satellite systems and the known fixed positions. The GPS technology used by omniSENSE supports Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS), a system that transmits corrections from orbiting satellites instead of ground-based transmitters.
Internal GPRS Modem All variants of omniSENSE – Pro have an internal dual-band GPRS modem. When fitted with a SIM card with GPRS service enabled, this modem is used to transmit the real-time data to a centralized server, in an encrypted form. Movement of the vehicle could then be monitored and alerts could be generated in the event of the vehicle violating any of the standard operating practices (e.g. speed violation, excessive delay in one particular location, geo-fence breach etc.)
Dual Power omniSENSE devices are normally powered by the 12V dc available from the vehicle’s battery. However, to ensure continuous recording of the location / movement of a vehicle even when the primary 12V dc is withdrawn or interrupted, the system continues to run on an internal 9V battery.
Internal Memory omniSENSE – Pro devices are online GPS tracking devices. Therefore, under normal circumstances, the vehicles location / movement data is transferred to the server using the GPRS network, and not stored internally within the device for offline transfer later on.

However, all omniSENSE devices are provided with internal memory capable of storing the details of more than 400 hours location / movement data in the event of non-availability of network connectivity prevents the data to be transferred to the central server.
Trip Recording On/Off Vehicle tracking should not be limited to just locating the vehicle at any given point of time. More often than not, commercially used vehicles need to collect, segregate and report detailed information about specific trips (e.g. duration, distance travelled, waiting time etc.) during its usage during a day, week etc.

The Trip On/Off feature built into the omniSENSE allows the end-user to precisely record the event of a Trip Start and a Trip End.
Alkaline Battery / Rechargeable NiMH Battery Provides back-up power for the omniSENSE device during the short periods when the 12V dc supply is switched-off. When running on back-up power, GPRS transmission is temporarily withdrawn, and resumed once the 12V dc supply is restored.

This ensures longer period of continuous recording of the vehicle’s location / movement and availability of these data once the 12V dc is restored to the device.
Inbuilt Charger The customer has the option to opt for an inbuilt charger.

For occasional users of the omniSENSE device, the rechargeable NiMH battery may also be charged periodically, as and when needed by using an appropriate wall mounted charger.

However, for heavy users of the device, it is recommended to use the variant with an inbuilt charger, so that the battery could also be charged from the 12V dc supply.
Additional Bluetooth Interface The Bluetooth Interface is a standard feature for the omniSENSE – Savvy version,but is optionally available to the omniSENSE – Pro versions also.

This interface, when present, would allow an alternative means of data transmission to the central server using a Bluetooth enabled phone, connected wirelessly to the device. This allows the use of the omniSENSE-Pro device even without the SIM card.
