Indoor and Outdoor Location Services and Tracking
Indoor Positioning is a Trbonet functionality that allows a Trbonet Dispatch Console operator to trace indoor location of a MOTOTRBO two-way radio in real time. Trbonet identifies the location of a radio by constantly receiving information about the radio’s proximity to the closest hardware transmitter (beacon) installed in the monitored area.
Combined indoor and outdoor positioning Outdoor (GPS) and indoor positioning can be both activated on a radio to supplement each other, particularly, in GPS-only and beacon-only coverage zones. Combined positioning can be extremely useful when ongoing location tracking is required for activities running both indoors and outdoors.
A camera can be linked to a specific point on a map, a subscriber unit, or an iBeacon transmitter to be viewed via Trbonet.
CCTV Camera Integration
IP cameras are capable of counting people entering, passing by and leaving an area. This may be utilised in a bus scenario by placing the cameras above the doors.
Passengers leaving and entering the bus will be detected in real-time. In concert, live video streams from these cameras may be accessed by control centre operators on demand using the Sierra Wireless MP70 as an internet modem.
Radar provides patronage analytics leveraging an integration with the Hikvision people counting IP cameras. This integration is location aware, and capable of providing an alternative source of patronage data to Government systems.
Additionally, this data is accessible via a REST API, which along with other Radar data may be made available to relevant stakeholders and third parties.
