BlackBerry today launched BlackBerry Radar H2, a scalable solution enabled for wireless communication with external sensors, such as the BlackBerry Radar Cargo Sensor, for enhanced visibility.
Available now, BlackBerry Radar H2 expands on the core capabilities of BlackBerry Radar-M, to provide enhanced coverage and connectivity to the latest 4G LTE cellular networks, as well as a wireless gateway that can also connect to wireless sensors, such as cargo sensors, tire pressure monitoring systems, brake sensors and weigh-in-motion devices.
Additionally, when mounted on a chassis, BlackBerry Radar H2 can detect whether a container is either ‘on’ or ‘off’ with no additional wires or external sensors.
Devices are easy to install in less than 10 minutes, with no training or experts required. Once installed, Radar devices immediately begin collecting information.
BlackBerry Radar H2 provides reliable, actionable location and status information on trailers, chassis, containers and equipment from one main device and can also communicate to wireless sensors for a customisable and scalable solution.
“For the intermodal and trucking industries, timely and accurate information on asset location, performance, and utilisation improvement has never been more important,” said Christopher Plaat, SVP and GM, BlackBerry Radar, BlackBerry.
“BlackBerry Radar H2 will deliver what our solution has long been known for – data you can trust, 10-minute installation, long-lasting battery life, low maintenance and the scalability that fleet owners need as business needs change.”
BlackBerry Radar Sensor Gateway
The BlackBerry Radar Sensor Gateway in Radar H2 communicates with external wireless sensors2, such as the BlackBerry Radar Cargo Sensor, and enables future integration to other sensors for enhanced visibility to asset status. The Sensor Gateway uses an advanced communication protocol that has minimal energy consumption and optimizes communication between the sensor and the main device in transportation use cases.
BlackBerry Radar Cargo Sensor Accessory
The BlackBerry Radar Cargo Sensor Accessory is the first wireless sensor released by BlackBerry that communicates with BlackBerry Radar H2. Designed for operations with trailers or containers that need enhanced cargo visibility and cargo , it includes a unique cargo sensing capability that determines cube utilization, in addition to door open/close alerts and environmental sensors.
Companies interested in learning more about the benefits of BlackBerry Radar H2 can visit the BlackBerry Radar booth (#2314) at ATA TMC from March 18 – 21 in Atlanta.
