Open-Source tracking solution – RuuviTracker


What is it?

What is it?

RuuviTracker is an open-source, electronic global positioning device as well as free software. Our GSM- and GPS/GLONASS/Galileo-enabled tracking system can be used for various different tasks. For example, it can be used to track your hunting dog, it can become your vehicle's alarm system, a portable weather station, a security system for your children, a logger or anything you can make out a use case for it. It's all about your imagination!

The device itself will be an affordable, water-proof, robust, high-quality and state-of-the-art product. It will run at temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F) and if equipped with expansion boards it can transform into almost anything. Additional expansion modules are not needed on most cases, because there's so much functionality embedded on our motherboard itself.

We have, for example: 168MHz ARM Cortex-M4, GSM, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, accelerometer, microSD, microphone, speaker etc. The device draws only few microamps during sleep, so even a small battery might last for several years. Additionally, our accelerometer is able to wake-up the device when it's touched. Cool, huh?

End-users are able to modify the behaviour of the device using a simple and easy-to-learn scripting language. No special programming tools or knowledge required!
