Californian autonomous driving software firm Cyngn has launched a global GPS asset-tracking device and IoT data collection gateway with up to 15 years of battery life.

The Infinitracker product aligns with the company’s mission to create data insights in industrial domains such as manufacturing, fulfilment, logistics, construction and mining.

Infinitracker is designed to attach to anything that someone wishes to track, such as shipping containers, pallets, equipment or vehicles. Attaching it to the asset will let users view its precise location, speed, temperature and direction of travel. It comes with a battery that lasts up to 15 years and can collect data from other sensors via Bluetooth.

“As we continued to explore opportunities where Cyngn can provide substantial value for supply chain, logistics and other industrial applications, it was immediately clear that Infinitracker is the perfect complement to our industrial vehicle autonomy and data analytics suite,” said Lior Tal, Cyngn’s CEO. “With today’s technology, there is no reason to have to spend time wondering about the location or condition of your inventory; global data should be visible to you in real time. Infinitracker brings us a new level of asset visibility with its IoT gateway capabilities and 15-year set-it-and-forget-it battery life. We are excited to introduce Infinitracker as yet another way our customers can benefit from additional data insights integrated into their operations.”

Using a global SIM card, it pushes data to the cloud from its built-in sensors or tethered Bluetooth devices anywhere in the world. Users can access data analytics either through Cyngn’s web portal or integrate with other asset management systems via API.

Cyngn is an autonomous vehicle technology company that is focused on addressing industrial uses for autonomous vehicles. It believes that autonomous industrial vehicles can help tackle labour shortages, lagging technological advancements from incumbents, and high upfront investment requirements.

Cyngn addresses these difficulties with its Enterprise Autonomy Suite, which includes DriveMod modular industrial vehicle autonomous driving software, Insight customer-facing software suite for monitoring and managing AV fleets and aggregating and analysing data, and the Evolve internal toolkit that enables Cyngn to leverage data from the field for artificial intelligence, simulation and modelling.
