GPS tracker with high security features
BluBox® is the innovative satellite tracker that integrates all components including GPS and GSM and a triaxial accelerometer for collision detection. Installed on board the vehicle, it records, memorizes, and communicates to the Viasat Operations Centre the travel data and those of a possible collision, and makes it possible to locate the position of the car and the person in difficulty wherever they are.
The analytical data, recorded by the BluBox®, therefore become a fundamental tool for processing vehicle use statistics and also allows telematic reconstruction of crash dynamics.
From Operations Centre
Viasat Group has a network of Operations Centres in Italy and Europe for the management of alarms and intervention practices related to customer security. The management of the telematic and assistance service guarantees high levels of quality, in terms of reaction times and timeliness of intervention in case of emergency.
For Insurance Companies
The BluBox® system’s continuous traceability improves the communication process between the customer and the insurance company since it provides a series of information about the driver’s driving characteristics, the driver’s actual use of the car, as well as the storage of accident dynamics.
All this means greater knowledge of the customer’s needs, to whom specific and convenient rates can be applied according to the use of the insured vehicle.
Viasat’s BluBox® system provides assistance not only only to the end customer, but also to the insurer himself, who has a valid tool for reducing the management costs of his business and, consequently, for building the fidelization of his target audience
It allows the interception and prevention of a possible theft in case of any suspect vehicle movements when the engine is switched off.
How it works:
The device, using the integrated movement sensor with GPS (Viasat trademark) detects any significant movements or suspected movements of the vehicle, and automatically sends a movement alarm signal to the Viasat Operations Centre. The operator verifies the situation by contacting the customer and if the vehicle is stolen, quickly activates all procedures for its recovery, such as:
Tracking: to monitor vehicle movements in real-time
Engine start lock/unlock: remotely activated, to immobilise the vehicle once it has been switched off
Optical/acoustic beacons: remotely activated, to detect theft and easily locate the vehicle
Police coordination: to recover the vehicle.
