Technology: STARCOM Systems
You benefit from an easy and practical use of the system, with an all-in-one solution support ; easy and simple installation ; integration in local vehicle environment ; flexible adaptation to local needs ; compact size including built-in antennas ; countless applications, and the option to increase its future applications.
You maintain stability with state-of-the-art radio contact capacity allowing to upgrade the remote unit with new functions and to modify parameters in the micro software of the existing unit. As a result, communication is steady in the vehicle, even in case of failure.
You save time and money as you can define transmission frequencies according to local or roaming emission.
You can take advantage of this state-of-the-art-system, which meets the automotive industry standards.
You control any possible circumstances or situations. The open system and its platform enable integration of any simple or complex situations.
For example: you can define a request to automatically modify the frequency of broadcasting, as soon as the vehicle enters a specific area and if the door is open.
You are guaranteed that:
In case of an unusual situation, the system will be automatically activated.
For example: At the time of an accident, the system will automatically unlock the doors and will make a beep every minute at a predefined rhythm to identify the location of the vehicle.
Programmable events: events can be defined to transmit and act at the same time on complex events. For example: horn activation and transmission when a tanker engine is turned on while it is unloading fuel at the fuel depot.
Speed limitations: programmable alarms each time the vehicle moves faster or slower than the predefined speed, to detect precipitation or unauthorised stops.
Mileage: a notification for specific numbers of miles travelled.
Turn detection: this device transmits each turn for better road viewing.
Engine turned on when the vehicle is parked: warn you when the engine is running while it is parked for a defined period of time.
Alerts based on perimeter: alerts via virtual geo-fencing when a vehicle enters or leaves a specific area.
Monitoring of values: monitoring of analogue entries in order to produce an alert when the tension/temperature goes up.
Identification of the driver: using different Dallas iButtons, remote control, keyboard or codes entered via RF keyboard, the unit sends the code to the current driver of the vehicle in the centre.
Itinerary transmission: periodical Itinerary transmissions for vehicle maintenance.
Automatic monitoring: automatic support of vehicle monitoring at specific hours without having to send extra orders to the vehicle.
Comprehensive security system: a comprehensive operational security system with multiple logic status to detect interruptions and report them to the centre.
Scheduling of hours: full control of alarm system synchronisation (Intervals for each alarm system logical mode).
Alarm via accelerometer: the unit can wake up with an event triggered by the accelerometer.
Towing detection: motion detection based on GPS, as soon as the system is triggered, it sends a towing alarm to the centre.
Low power warning: transmission of a warning when the vehicle main power supply goes below a predefined threshold.
4 deactivation systems: 4 deactivation systems are available including a digital keypad, a RF keyboard, a remote control and a Dallas iButton.
Gradual stop: an option to gradually stop the vehicle by sending pulses to the anti-start system or to the fuel dispenser;
Vehicle and driver protection
Emergency button: for the emergency button to produce a high-priority transmission intended for the centre.
Accident and sudden braking detector: a built-in accelerometer used as an accident and sudden braking detector.
Automatic locking: support to lock or unlock the doors each time the engine starts or stops.
Digital inputs: 8 digital inputs, mostly used for starting, emergency, doors, loading and unloading
One input for the impulse recorder: to measure odometer impulses, or any other kind of impulses generated by external devices.
Analogue inputs: three analogue inputs, each of them can be set to work with 2 measuring scales of different measures. For example: use of temperature sensors or fuel measurement without the need of an external sensor. An analogue input is optional (a digital input can be used as an analogue input).
Input programming: each input can be programmed in order to trigger transmissions in any conditions, and to load or unload the security system.
Indication regarding the main power supply: main power supply measure to indicate the vehicle battery voltage level.
Canbus connection: direct connection to the vehicle computer with the Canbus protocol.
Odometer support: support for the digital odometer allowing the reading of impulses and to calculate the vehicle mileage.
Digital outputs: four digital inputs, mostly used to unlock/lock the doors, for the alarm and the anti-start device.
Modification of the impulse length: capacity to define the length and the number of impulses for locking or unlocking.
Cell connectivity: support for GSM networks (optional GPRS or 3G), while using text messaging and data channel. Supported bands: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz Optional support for CDMA and HSDPA
Connectivity via satellite: using an external device, an iridium connection can be used out of the cellular coverage.
TCP connectivity: GPRS/1x TCP/ IP network support, either by constantly staying online, or by going online when a connection is triggered.
DNS support: connection to a server via its host name.
Back-up server: save the host name support in situations where the main server goes off line.
Encryption: protocol encryption to provide maximum security between the vehicle and the centre.
External protocol support: support intended for third-party protocol external devices, such as word processing terminal or RFID readers.
Navigation support: support for external navigation devices, such as laptop computers.
Anti-jamming: support of gradual stop of vehicle if a theft transmission has failed because of a communication frequency jamming.
Compact protocol: less than 70 bytes by message to allow the use of a narrow bandwidth or communication cost savings.
Vocal calls: hands-free kit for vocal calls from and to the vehicle. Capacity to start a vocal call from the unit, without the driver knowing it.
Orders through radio contact
Firmware upgrade: The radio contact firmware is upgraded in order to apply new functions to
Status request: capacity to require the vehicle most recent status and to receive comprehensive information regarding input, output, and location data.
Monitoring: option allowing remote activation of periodical transmissions coming from the unit, with intervals going from 10 seconds to up to 5 days.

Parameters programming: comprehensive programming of each unit OTA parameters.
Remote activation/deactivation: option allowing the activation and deactivation of the vehicle from the centre.
Change of output status: option allowing to remotely activate or deactivate different outputs, such as locking/unlocking the doors, alarm starting/stopping, activating/deactivating the anti-starting device.
Remote control/Dallas button: remote activation of an extra Dallas iButton and of remote control.
Mileage configuration: remote update to synchronise the unit and the vehicle internal mileage counter.
Vocal call request: to ask the unit to call a specific number for a vocal call in order to communicate with the driver and/or hear the activity inside the vehicle.
