Honeywell Asset Tracking

Feasibility

KD worked with Honeywell to understand the requirements for a product and identify optimal technologies for the solution.

Design Development

KD designed the electronics for the system using highly accurate multi-constellation GNSS receivers to monitor asset location. The system also includes both Iridium satellite and cellular 2G and 3G modems to ensure truly worldwide communications. The system was carefully power optimised to achieve several months of operation between charges.

 

Test & Transfer to Manufacture

We worked closely with manufacturers and accredited test house partners to ensure compliance with a range of global regulatory standards and optimise the design for manufacture.
