The global telematics market is booming as network operators, fleet management and insurance companies combine location and cellular connectivity for asset tracking and diagnostic applications. Connected vehicle services such as driver monitoring, incident reporting, onboard diagnostics and emergency response require reliable and precise location technology.
Current mobile GPS solutions often suffer from poor tracking performance when operating in non-line of sight conditions. Antenna Company has overcome this limitation using our SuperShape® technology to realize an antenna which delivers excellent tracking performance even when placed in adverse RF environments, such as under the dashboard of the vehicle.
Antenna Company supports GPS, Glonass, and BeiDou standards in a single design which is optimized for easy integration into OBD-II form factors. We also offer 2G and 4G cellular antennas which enable a complete system solution with excellent coexistence. When combined with our Wi-Fi networking antennas, OEMs can add another connectivity option to their products.
- Multi-band satellite support in single antenna for global solution
- Optimal tracking performance independent of device placement
- Excellent coexistence with cellular bands
- Zero footprint design – antenna integrated into device housing
Low Power IoT and M2M applications
The IOT and M2M end-markets are diverse – market segments include Automotive, Wearables, Smart Grid, Industrial and more. Low power operation, extended range and compact, cost-effective designs are common requirements across IOT/M2M market segments. Wireless technologies can include low-power Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular and sub-GHz.
Due to the small available space in most IOT and M2M applications, antennas with excellent isolation characteristics and resistance to de-tuning effects of the surrounding electronics are needed. Antenna Company’s SDRA products are designed with those requirements in mind. The high efficiency of our antennas allow OEMs to extend battery lifetime by operating at lower output powers.
