BPPLUS

Vehicle Tracking Made Simple

In addition to its telematics capabilities, the major advantage of the Piccolo Plus IoT device is functionality as an in-cabin WIFI Hotspot and an IoT Gateway with integrated IoT tag support for tool and small item tracking. Available on LTE Cat 1, the network with the widest coverage. With GPS vehicle tracking, engine diagnostics, integrated rechargeable back-up battery and support for dashcams, geofence alerts, temperature monitoring sensors and BLE Support for ELD Compliance, it's the top choice as a complete telematics solution for all vehicle types.

Plug & Play

Plug & Play installation with OBD harness on any vehicle type

GPS Tracker with WiFi Hotspot

Functions as a in-cabin WIFI Hotspot and wireless router allowing communication of any mobile device to the internet. The major advantage is that it lets you use one sim card, one cellular bill for GPS tracking, ELD, dispatch and messaging

Multiple Applications in One

Fleet management, ELD and DashCam functionalities use ONE single SIM which eliminates the need for multiple SIM cards with multiple charges and enables the use of a less expensive WIFI tablet and WIFI Camera

Key Features

  • Dashcam Support Connect our Dashcam for fleet safety and monitoring of extreme driving behavior such as sudden acceleration, sudden lane crossing, sharp turns and sudden braking
  • In-Cabin WiFi Hotspot and Wireless Router allowing communication of any mobile device to the internet
  • Engine Diagnostics Reads CANbus OBDII, K-Line, J1939, and J1708 data such as: fuel consumption, oil pressure, distance travelled, RPM
  • Wireless Temperature Monitoring Supports up to 50 RFTags for high-accuracy temperature monitoring of +/- 0.9°F (0.5°C) when packaged with an external digital temp sensor or an accuracy of +/- 1.8°F (1°C) with the integrated temperature sensor
  • Wired Temperature Monitoring Monitor up to 6 different compartments with an accuracy of ±0.5°C. Easily configure the Piccolo PLUS to report the temperature readings periodically, when the temperature changes more than X degrees and configure alarm limits for highs/lows
  • IoT Gateway The Piccolo PLUS acts as an IoT Gateway communicating with our family of IoT Tags and uploading the IoT data to the server- for an all around connected fleet
  • IO's 3 digital inputs, 2 digital output and 1 analog input for event logs such as engine on/off, vibration alarm, door open/close, are sent with the time stamp of the event
  • Idle Transmission When the vehicle is idle (stopped) for a predetermined time period, the unit can switch to transmit in “idle mode,“ for example every 4 hours instead of every minute while moving
  • Remote Starter Kill When the vehicle is stolen a command is sent OTA to kill the starter so once the vehicle is stopped and the ignition is turned off it can’t be turned on again (for safety reasons in most countries it’s illegal to OTA turn off the engine or gradually decelerate when the vehicle is moving)
  • Auto Driver ID Authorize drivers to start vehicle with driver identification via dallas keys or passive RFID keys
  • Back-Up BatteryIntegrated rechargeable back-up battery. Battery level transmitted with every GPS data report. Battery saving mode – automatically switches to deep sleep mode when the engine is turned off and automatically wakes-up when the engine is turned on or on tilt or vibration
  • Store & Forward Stores and forwards up to 5000 events and sends them automatically when unit is back in cellular coverage
  • Plug & Play Integration Highly compressed OTA, UDP communication packaged with MidLink Middleware and “Plug & Play” API or DLL for quick integration into any third party software
  • Flexible RS-232 Interface allowing easy integration of external devices

IoT and ELD Support

Tool Tracking

IoT and ELD Support

  • Plug & Play Installation With Pass Through Harness Connect to almost any vehicle on the road with a variety of cable options.
  • Mode of Operation The Piccolo PLUS actively reads and reports engine diagnostics, fuel data, driver behavior, temperature data and more. In addition, the Piccolo PLUS provides visibility on to specialized, on-board equipment such as PTO status
  • Battery Saving Mode Switches to deep sleep mode when engine is turned off and automatically wakes up when switch is turned on or on vibration (this feature does not require back up battery)
  • IoT Solutions In addition to its many telematics functionalities, various IoT BLE tags have been integrated with the Piccolo PLUS. This functionality allows the Piccolo PLUS to act as an IoT Gateway which is used to process and forward the IoT data to the server- for countless applications including Tool Tracking, Cold Chain, Asset Tracking, Inventory Management, School Transportation & Campus Management
  • ELD-Ready Built-in WiFi hotspot allow for transferring engine data to the DriverLog app or to 3rd party integrations
