Track Your Travelling Luggage
Trakdot™ Luggage offers peace of mind by helping you keep track of your bag when you travel by air! Receive a text message or email when you land telling you that your checked-in luggage arrived with you. The Trakdot Luggage Locator is designed to emit signals when your luggage is within or near an airport location. The device does not use GPS but rather works in conjunction with your mobile phone with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications).
How Does Trakdot™ Work?
How does Trakdot™ work without GPS Tracking Technologies?
Trakdot™ employs newly patented mirco-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. When in luggage, in an airplane cargo hold, how does Trakdot™ comply with FAA regulations? 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.
