When housed in a standard number 10 business envelope, the G.P.S. Letter Logger flows through mail sorting and delivery systems as unnoticed as any typical piece of mail, all the while gathering and reporting important logistical information that allows the Postal Service to analyze the efficiency of its systems. “If the G.P.S. Letter Logger records extended down time in a particular location, that lets the inspector know that there is a potential problem.
The driving forces behind G.P.S. Letter Logger are the combined functions of a powerful and highly efficient microprocessor developed by Texas Instruments and a low-power consumption uBlox ANTARIS 4 GPS module. “The minimal power requirements of both of these components were key to the successful implementation of the G.P.S. Letter Logger.
Merely a quarter of an inch thick, and with the surface area of a tri-folded sheet of paper, the G.P.S. Letter Logger technologically exceeds the capabilities of a similar Siemens product in that the user can adjust the G.P.S. Letter Logger’s GPS reporting frequencies. “G.P.S. Letter Logger’s reporting is fully customizable. Users can choose to receive reports every 2, 5 or 10 minutes or select tilt mode which reports only when a tilting movement is detected.
G.P.S. Letter Logger will operate up to 20 hours in a pre-determined timed configuration or up to two weeks in tilt mode using a slim 1100mAh battery.
