Hybrid Centaur

Vehicle hybrid tracking device

The Centaur-H is a next generation hybrid smart controller device for mobile assets. The unit can integrate with multiple type sensors and on-board computers to provide real-time analysis of the vehicle status. The device provides worldwide hybrid communication capabilities, Cellular (4G) and satellite (Iridium), extremely accurate location systems (GPS and GLONASS) to assure continual communication and control over any location on the planet. The device’s core is built around fast duel processors providing robust diagnostic abilities such as fuel management, temperature control, driver behavior and access control. Communication with the device is bi directional thus enabling over-the-air-programming and remote configuration of the unit. The Centaur is commonly integrated with Tril-ogical’s control and management applications. It is applicable both for the civilian market (trains, public transportation, and private vehicles) and the defense (in ruggedized mode) and HLS markets.
