U-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, is partnering with Arvento Mobile Systems, a Turkey-based fleet telematics company, to develop a compact people and asset tracking device with a long battery life.

The Arvento Treyki Mini has eight operating modes, including special settings for tracking children (with geofencing) and senior citizens (with an integrated fall sensor). It is also suitable for use in sports, racing and asset management. It can also be used as an emergency beacon.

The tracker has an onboard positioning receiver, and reports its location using an internal GSM/GRPS modem. It can operate for up to seven days from its 900mAh LiPo rechargeable battery before it needs to be recharged.

The Treyki Mini relies on the u-blox ZOE-M8Q concurrent multi-GNSS module to discover its location. This system-in-package (SiP) offering is 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.0 millimeters. It provides high accuracy thanks to its ability to receive 72 channels simultaneously, from up to three different GNSS constellations, the company said.

It also offers reliable positioning in challenging environments because it has a sensitivity of –167 dBm and is energy efficient.

Communications for the Treyki Mini are provided by the u-blox SARA-G340 dual-band GSM/GPRS module — its very low standby power of less than 0.90 mA helps extend the Mini’s battery life. The SARA-G340 module also supports firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) updates, enabling Arvento to continue to refine the Treyki Mini after production.

“The Treyki Mini is the result of a very close collaboration between Arvento and u-blox to optimize its size and power consumption,” said Özer Hıncal, general manager, Arvento. “We expect that the strong sense of partnership that evolved between our two companies during the development of the Treyki Mini will lead to further collaboration in the future, especially when it comes to telematics system solutions.”
