ERM Advanced Telematics, a global vehicle security solution provider, has introduced a vehicle tracking device – StarLink eConnect with unique jamming mitigation and location networking capabilities.
ERM Advanced Telematics said today many car thieves no longer rely on forcefully removing vehicle tracking devices while stealing a vehicle. They have learned to bypass the location tracking capacities of standard vehicle tracking devices with readily-available and inexpensive jamming devices that interfere with the GPS/GSM radio frequency signals transmitted by vehicle tracking devices.
StarLink eConnect provides anti-theft solution that tackles these recent tactics used by car thieves.
StarLink eConnect’s jamming mitigation capabilities enables to identify when the location signal of the vehicle tracking device is being interfered with by a jamming device. Immediately the StarLink eConnect device alerts along with location and time stamp information over a dedicated open frequency. These alerts are then rebroadcasted by other StarLink eConnect devices installed on additional vehicles in the vicinity.
According to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the total value of motor vehicle thefts exceed $ 4.5 billion in 2014 in the United States, while only just over half of the locally stolen vehicles were recovered.
Meir Hayman, founder and CEO of ERM Advanced Telematics, said, “We are proud to introduce StarLink eConnect that adds an important new dimension to our partners’ businesses and helps them better fulfill their missions.”
Already ERM has successfully made pilot implementations of StarLink eConnect at a number of Stolen Vehicle Recovery service provider customers in Israel and South America.
Currently, free trials of StarLink eConnect solution have been offered to qualified Stolen Vehicle Recovery and similar Fleet Management service providers.
