RockDASH Fleet Tracking


The RockDASH is a portable, dash-mounted, vehicle tracking and messaging device used to monitor GPS location and vehicle movement. Data is transported via the most cost-effective and reliable route, utilizing terrestrial networks when possible, switching to the global Iridium satellite network when LTE Narrowband is not available.


Asset Tracking and Messaging

RockDASH provides cost-effective monitoring and alerts as to the whereabouts of your fleet when they’re in highly remote locations. It also offers five switch inputs for connection to on-board sensors, so it can transmit data on vibration, temperature, pressure and noise, for example, allowing you to plan in predictive maintenance.

The tracker will ‘wake up’ frequently in order to identify its location using the GPS satellite network. It will then transmit this position to Ground Control HQ via the Iridium satellite network (or LTE Narrowband if in range). This ensures you’re getting the best network coverage and value for money at all times.

Iridium’s LEO network provides truly global coverage and low-latency communications, enabling the high-reliability performance of RockDASH’s comprehensive tracking, messaging, and M2M / IoT features.

Keeping Your Team and Fleet Safe

With ‘watch mode’ activated, the device monitors for low-profile abnormal activity. The ‘Red Alert’ function sends pre-programmed alerts back to your base. Utilizing waypoint marks, geo-fencing, and Ground Control’s easy-to-use web-based viewer, you can trace the movement of vehicles within mapped boundaries, securing the location and activity of the fleet.

Geo-fences can be programmed to have different behaviours. For example, transmitting on entry, exit, or both; or a specific transmission frequency when inside each fence. So you can personalize the RockDASH specifically to the activity and anticipated vehicle routing.

It also keeps your people connected via short messages (like SMS, social media updates, and short emails), sent using a paired Bluetooth device, such as a smartphone, and the RockCONNECT app. This allows for full two-way communication wherever you are, even when out of mobile network range.
