Introducing “Intelligent Logistics,” an Advanced Visibility Solution
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — I.D. Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSY), a leading provider of enterprise asset management and Internet of Things technology, today announced the release of a new line of asset telemetry solutions, a suite of interoperable sensors, as well as an interactive voice-user interface for accessing the power of I.D. Systems’ analytics platform without the need to manually run reports. This launch includes a first-of-its-kind image-based cargo visibility detector. These robust technological platforms enhance I.D. Systems tracking, monitoring and reporting capabilities to provide freight transportation providers, shippers and supply chain stakeholders with powerful insights to make smarter, faster decisions for higher overall performance.
LV-Series, a Cargo-Tracking Solution Suite
LV-100 / LV-300 / LV-500 / LV-710 / LV-740
The I.D. Systems LV Asset Tracking and Freight Visibility Series address a critical gap in the supply chain by giving users real-time updates into their freight through imagery and environmental sensors. Driven by wireless sensor integration and visual image confirmation, the LV Series monitors the condition and status of the cargo including temperature, humidity and shock, and tracks the asset’s location, loaded levels, tire pressure, anti-lock braking system lights, and other elements.
The three asset tracking models (LV-100, LV-300 and LV-500) vary according to power management technology such as a long-life primary battery, rechargeable battery, or dual-power source. Each includes I.D. Systems’ field proven drive-segment detection and well as time-based and sensor-event reporting. They also incorporate wireless sensing of both LV-710, LV-720 and LV-730 on-asset sensors as well as LV-740 pallet-level sensors.
The LV-710 is a patent-pending, wireless high-definition camera, image recognition processor, door sensor and cargo-area environmental sensor that integrates with the family of LV primary asset tracking devices, and our new PowerFleet Yard smart phone app. When utilized with LV-740 pallet sensors, the LV-710 can also detect and report if and where pallets are loaded, as well as environmental alerts (e.g. temperature, etc.), to deliver complete cargo visibility.
