The UAE and wider GCC countries could play a key role within the Internet of Things (IoT) GPS tracking devices sector, according to Trackimo, one of the leading IoT solution providers across the globe.

Reports show that the global GPS tracking devices industry is anticipated to reach $5 billion by 2028. Trackimo has exhibited some of the world’s most unique tracking devices at GITEX 2021, the annual consumer computer and electronics trade show, exhibition, and conference. 

Trackimo’s cellular-based end-to-end IoT solution assists people and businesses to stay connected to each other and to their belongings through real-time location tracking. The company offers an extra layer of protection by combining its technology with features such as direct communication to first-responders, real-time location tracking, customized safe zones and many more.

“We strongly believe that several vertical industries in the GCC region can strongly benefit by deploying the right GPS tracking solutions to increase their efficiencies. For instance, our fleet management tracking solutions provide real-time asset monitoring and protection of high-value and remote assets, increasing accountability, efficiency, responsiveness, safety, and savings. Furthermore, this kind of monitoring framework will make the trade between GCC countries more profitable, safe, and efficient.”

At GITEX 2021, Trackimo brought out the first connected smartwatch for children ‘NickWatch by Nickelodeon‘, which utilizes Trackimo’s advanced IoT technology centered on real-time location tracking and motion sensors via a dedicated mobile application.  

Another unique launch from the company at GITEX is the V16 emergency LED flashlight for vehicles that alerts their surroundings when in distress. The emergency LED flashlight combines Trackimo’s IoT technology and is a simple and handy safety solution for both emergencies and daily use that provides peace of mind to drivers at all times. 

“Safety and peace of mind for our clients is what guides our thoughts and efforts. The company’s advanced proprietary technology is backed by its range of tracking devices that are equipped with a unique chipset supporting an all-in-one 2G/3G/4G/Cat-M1 (fallback) as well as Wi-Fi and BLE connection that can carry any SIM card,” added Mr. Amit Shaked, Chief Operating Officer, Trackimo.

The ‘Evil Eye’ amulet is another novel product by Trackimo at GITEX 2021. The amulet uses four types of GPS tracking technology, Cellular, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, and thus guarantees independent and precise real-time global location. 

“Another product that we showcased at Gitex this year is our ‘battery tracker’. This product transforms any industrial battery into a smart one with our customized embedded module that fits directly onto the battery itself. The module provides an added layer of performance and location monitoring featuring Trackimo’s classic features such as real-time global location tracking, geofence zone configuration and alerts, speed monitoring, and more. Additionally, the battery tracker’s enhanced features allow monitoring the unit’s environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, low-battery alerts, remote shut down, and more. This product plays a significant role in personal mobility vehicles such as e-bikes, e-scooters, e-motorcycles; mobile industrial tools, and more,” concluded Mr. Amit. 

Trackimo’s technology is highly trusted by leading companies globally. The company has brought forward several partnerships including the Vodafone Curve, a personal tracker that was launched in 2020.  This product recently won the Glomo Award for Best Connected Consumer Device at MWC Barcelona; as well as the Vodafone Business Tag and Track mobile asset tracking service.
