USS Releases Screenshots of its Secretive GPS Tracking Program
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., (May 14, 2014) – USS has just released first images related to its new GPS Asset Protection system. The screenshots show the view an LP manager would see on his or her computer while tracking a particular asset.
“What’s revolutionary about our new GPS retail tracker is its very small size,” said Tony Oliver, the company’s chief technology officer; “but one of its nicest features is just how simple it is to use. LP managers can easily follow any item from their computers or smart phones.”
Setting up a geo-fence around a particular location is easy. To save battery, each GPS tracker is in sleep mode while inside the geo-fence. Once the tracker detects that it is being moved it goes into alarm mode and reports it location at regular intervals, as determined by the LP manager.
A USS executive carried a test device on a business trip while the company’s R&D department tracked him. Blue bubble on the right shows the gate where his airplane arrived, and bubbles on the left show him walking to the gate for his connecting flight.
The precision of the tracker is visible in this picture where the tracker is reporting its location every 30 seconds. Visible is not just that the device was at a particular airport, but its exact path during taxiing.
The view can be switched between the satellite image and Google Maps.
LP manager can easily see the location of every device nationwide.
When not in alarm mode, the device will report its health and status once a day. LP manager can also check on a particular device remotely at any time.
LP manager can pinpoint the exact location of the room in the building where the item is hidden.
Google Street View can be used to also pinpoint the item’s location within a particular building.
USS will showcase the new GPS Asset Protection system at the NRF conference in Fort Lauderdale from June 11 to June 13, 2014. Private demonstrations can be requested through the company’s web site at www.UniversalEAS.com/nrf.
