Trakdot Luggage Tracker: Keep Track of Your luggage while traveling by air.
GSM based technology to track your luggage
Trakdot™ devices employs newly patented micro-electronics and ground-based cellular telephone technologies to track and report its position on the ground even while inside metal containers, such as cars, hardened suitcases, and parked aircraft.
Trakdot™ is FCC approved
Trakdot’s artificial intelligence shuts off its transmit-and-receive capability and enters “airplane mode” by employing solid-state accelerometer technologies that sense the sustained acceleration of an airplane during taxi and/or the approximate first third of takeoff roll. Trakdot™ is in airplane mode or “sleep mode” well before the aircraft is airborne.
The same accelerometer technologies used to put Trakdot™ in sleep mode before aircraft flight, also sense the sustained deceleration of the aircraft as the pilot uses brakes and thrust reversers on the ground to rapidly slow the aircraft after it touches-down.
When Trakdot™ is “re-awakened” on the ground, it finds and employs the local cellular network to contact the Trakdot™ owner and report its position. A sample SMS Text Message to the owner would be: Your Trakdot [ ID ] is in Reagan National Airport, Washington, D.C.
