Major hurdles concerning car tracking solved
Twintown is proud to announce a new partnership with the IoT company Netmorem2m who will provide satellite tracking during upcoming rally events. Rather than using the traditional checkpoint times, we will be able to track cars using a sophisticated real-time based sim card system, which will relay car positions every 1 second.
It´s a rather simple system based upon m2m sim cards and a Rasberry PI computer that sends information to a central computer that will track time and geographical positions. This has certainly been possible before, but costs have been a major obstacle to small venues such as ourselves.
Through this system, both spectators and drivers will be able to check their position and time accurately in a digital app in real-time. Our hope is that this will increase spectator attendance and in turn sponsors for our charity events.
