In addition to movable objects such as (construction) vehicles, boats and motorcycles, we offer you with GEOTRACE® a reliable instrument for asset security and location. With the geofencing function it is possible to define individual areas. The georeferenced spatial definition allows you to use our GEOTRACE® systems to efficiently control all objects. Regardless of whether you, as a contractor, want to safeguard your machinery and equipment or if you, as a cultural business, want to keep an overview of your artwork, props or technical equipment, GEOTRACE® will inform you at any time by text message, e-mail or phone call if the position changes Your goods and equipment besipielsweise by a theft unforeseen changes.
Instruments and technical equipment in concert and theater companies (grand pianos and pianos, amplifiers, guitars)
Construction machinery and equipment (rollers, excavators, etc.)
Tracking and displaying by digital maps
GEOTRACE® offers you at any time a clear and accurate representation of your tracking objects based on digital maps (Google Maps, Google Earth, Open Street Map).
With the aid of the GPS (Global Positioning System), our systems locate the geographical position of your movable positioning objects with an accuracy in the meter range.
The exact position is output by coordinates of different coordinate systems, as illustrated by the example of the Würzburg Residence:
49 ° 47'34.3 "N
09 ° 56'20.7 "E
(Degrees / minutes / seconds)
(Universal Transverse Mercator)

(Zone - grid square / east / north)
You can quickly and specifically order the nearest vehicle to the place of use and provide your customers with temporal and spatial transparency, since you have the option of informing your customers about schedule shifts at an early stage.
Through an individually configurable customer demo account in the MyGeotrace portal, your customers can be authorized to view the vehicle location online themselves. Thus, our systems offer you a significant increase in your customer service.
In the event of a theft, you can immediately see online via GEOTRACE® where the stolen vehicle is currently located.
With GEOTRACE® anti-theft protection, you will always know where your vehicle is in an emergency worldwide, so you can quickly tell the police about the position.
GEOTRACE® theft protection (GEOTRACE®-AKTIV) already warns you if your vehicle leaves a certain sector or does not respond within a certain period of time.
When manipulating the battery or igniting / disconnecting the GEOTRACE® system from the vehicle electrical system, you will immediately be informed automatically by email or SMS and you will see the last vehicle location on the online map. (Only with fixed installation)
In the case of a failure / manipulation of the vehicles internal power supply, the device is powered by an integrated lithium-ion battery.
Remote shutdown / decommissioning of vehicles (option)
GEOTRACE®-AKTIV optionally offers the option of remote shutdown / immobilisation of vehicles
(for example, theft).
Blocking the ignition
(For safety reasons only possible when the vehicle is at a standstill or when the engine is switched off)
Due to the possible danger to road users, the safety guidelines must be observed.
Release of the ignition / resumption option Driving mode
Safety for lonely workers
Workers who work outside the company`s headquarters, for example in areas such as fishing, forestry and agriculture, civil engineering or installation work, are not only left to their own devices in open terrain, but also work under uncontrollable influences of the environment and the environment of the respective environment.
A significant increase in the safety of these employees is achieved through the so-called man-down function, which informs you immediately in the event of an emergency (injury due to a fall), allowing you to act faster and more efficiently.
The geofencing function also makes an additional contribution to safety: As soon as your employee leaves a defined area, GEOTRACE® informs you directly via call, e-mail or SMS about the unplanned change of the defined location.
In addition to securing your employees and maintaining the statutory duty of care, protection and due diligence, you also benefit from:
1. Optimization of planning and work processes
2. Efficient coordination of your employees
3. Monitoring of work progress / workload
IRIDIUM refers to a global satellite communications system consisting of 66 active satellites, enabling global satellite telephony.
Founded in 1991, Iridium Inc. published the IRIDIUM Satellite Communication System in 1998, which enables both voice and data communications.
IRIDIUM has the technical advantage that the communication of the terminals works directly via satellites. This means that the satellites are connected via different earth stations with the ground-based terminals.
The earth stations of the satellite network are located in:
- USA (Tempe [main gateway], Wahiawa, Chandler, Fairbanks)
- Canada (Yellowknife, Iqualuit)
- Russia (Izhevsk)
- Norway (Longyearbyen)
GPS is a technical collective term that combines different technologies. The GPS was developed by the US Department of Defense in the 1970s and carries until today the title NAVSTAR GPS (Navigation Satellite Timing and Ranging - Global Positioning System).
There are also other GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) such as:
- GALILEO (European Union)
- GLONASS (Russian Federation)
- BEIDOU (Republic of China)
Since the introduction of the new European Data Protection Regulation on 25 May 2018, special conditions have been added to the collection of personal data relating to data processing for employment.
These are governed, inter alia, within the EU Regulation 2016/679 of 27.04.2016, the EU Data Protection Regulation of 25.05.2018 and the associated amendment of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
In the context of EU Regulation 2016/679, the following principles for the processing of personal data under Chapter II, Article 5 can be found:
1) Legality, in act of good faith, transparency
2) Purpose limitation
3) Data minimization
5) Memory limitation
6) Integrity and confidentiality
On basis of the legal statements, data protection legal permissibility of GPS positioning can be carried out according to the following principles:
2) Reason: The GPS tracking must be justified and comprehensible.
3) Type and extent: The type and extent of the data must be disclosed.
4) Technical marking: The worker must be informed immediately while beeing tracked.
5) Obligations of information and disclosure: The employee must be informed individually and regularly about the evaluation and extent of the records.
6) Right to request cancellation: The employee must be given the right at all times to have data deleted, provided that there are no criminal matters involved and the objectives of the location have obviously been achieved (for example in the case of executed orders).
The present legal provisions will be upheld as part of a data processing agreement by the company Geotrace, which ensures that the location is carried out under privacy-compliant provisions.
REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, on the free movement of persons and repealing Directive 95/46 / EC (General Data Protection Regulation) Federal Data Protection Act of 30 June 2017 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 2097) further details in the context of special processing situations (§§26 - 31, chapter 1, part 2, section 2), which concerning the data processing for purposes of the employment relationship (chapter 1 / part 2 / Section 2 / §26).
