Abeeway trackers are small, light, and highly resistant to harsh environments (ATEX certified​).

People’s Safety Solution

Smart multimode configuration

Our devices can actively change tracking modes and optimize performance by tuning each operation mode, location intervals, motion triggers, local geofencing, rotation, and more.

People’s Safety Solution

Sensor-based positioning trigger

Abeeway’s SOS/panic button-equipped geofencing devices prompts location in specific use cases (e.g. motion, temperature, vibration, and pressure) using built-in sensors.

People’s Safety Solution

Flexible, high-precision tracking through geolocation adaptability

Abeeway’s optimized multiple geolocation technology system enables high energy efficiency and precise positioning in indoor and outdoor settings. The tracker’s firmware selects the best location technology and automatically adjusts itself to its surroundings, prolonging device battery life. Our trackers achieve optimal power-accuracy trade-off through the following geolocation technologies:

Asset Management Solution

GPS (Global Positioning System

Ideal for outdoor environments, GPS has conventional and accurate position calculation using its chipset with 10-meter precision, but requires more processing time, consuming more energy.

People’s Safety Solution

WiFi Sniffing

For dense urban areas and indoor locations, where GPS and Low-Power GPS are insufficient, WiFi Sniffing is the answer. Using WiFi access points (SSIDs), it has low-power positioning and high accuracy at an average of 20-50 meters.

People’s Safety Solution

BLE – Bluetooth Low Energy

BLE ensures easy interoperability with other devices at short range with minimal power consumption. It is best for short-distance indoor positioning, using devices such as BLE beacons or a mobile phone. Moreover, real-time locating system (RTLS) identifies and tracks the location of objects or people in real time within a building or other contained areas.

People’s Safety Solution

LoRa TDoA

Also known as “native” geolocation with LoRa, it uses triangulation to get the Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) on the received LoRa signal and position calculation. It is the most power-efficient outdoor and indoor geolocation mechanism, perfectly mastered by Actility.

LOW-POWER GPS – Abeeway Patented Technology

Usual trackers typically need long synchronization time to GPS signals resulting to extended power-consuming receive time. Meanwhile, Abeeway trackers only need a few seconds. All processing moves to the server, relying on unique server-side algorithms, and works with as little as 3 nearby satellites instead of 4, which high GPS signal levels require, e.g. in adverse weather conditions, tall buildings, and light indoors. Our patented low-power technology cuts GPS energy consumption and the Time to First Fix to under 10 seconds versus at least 1 minute for regular GPS increasing battery life up to 4 times.

Take a closer look at our breakthrough LP-GPS technology.

The LoRaWAN™ Protocol

LoRaWAN™ is a global standard that offers long-range (up to 15km) bi-directional communications featuring very low power consumption extending device battery life up to 10 years. It uses unlicensed ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) radio bands for cost-efficient network deployments.

Through this, a single gateway or base station can cover entire cities or hundreds of square kilometers as LoRa® and its MAC layer, LoRaWAN™, have a greater link budget than any other standardized communication technology.

Why LoRaWAN over cellular networks?

Asset Management Solution

LoRaWAN works everywhere, unlike the limited cellular connectivity in remote areas

People’s Safety Solution

Unique deep indoor penetration of LoRa radios, where cellular connectivity is spotty

People’s Safety Solution

LoRaWAN increases the device’s battery life by at least 10 times compared to cellular networks that have high bandwidth consumption

People’s Safety Solution

LoRaWAN reduces maintenance and hardware costs thus decreasing the overall TCO of the solutions

Flexibility of network deployment

Between choosing either their own private LoRaWAN networks or existing public ones, industries can enjoy the network deployment flexibility that LoRaWAN offers. Abeeway solutions work with all LoRaWAN connectivity providers and is fully integrated with Actility’s ThingPark platform, which powers enterprise private networks and most public LoRaWAn networks in the world. Additionally, handover is possible between ThingPark Enterprise-dedicated networks and public networks via ThingPark Exchange – our roaming platform for LoRaWAN service providers.

Secure, convenient data storage and integration

Abeeway and Actility developed a modular Location Engine, ThingPark X, which processes, analyzes, and manages geolocation data and stores these in a highly secure server. It computes and provides the best possible location information through multiple geolocation technologies. Easy-to-integrate APIs also allow easy export and data visualization using third-party business applications and software.

The Life of a Smart Pallet:
Journeying through Seamless Outdoor-Indoor Geolocation

In a warehouse, a tracker needs indoor geolocation technologies using WiFi or BLE. Once the tracker leaves the warehouse and goes outdoors, it switches to GPS or Low-Power GPS-based technologies for position updating via a public LoRaWAN network. In large outdoor rural areas, where precise location is not required, the LoRa TDoA technique appears the most adapted. Meanwhile, an unlicensed, low-cost, low-power private LoRaWAN network can easily transport the location data from any indoor and outdoor location.

Technology

Actility’s ThingPark Location platform uniquely addresses geolocation opportunities through merging both carrier- and enterprise-grade IoT connectivity solutions. It also supports both public and private LoRaWAN deployments. Using this together with ThingPark Exchange for LoraWAN roaming, worldwide geolocation will truly be in reach.
