Cognosos launched the RT-270, the fourth generation of its finished vehicle logistics (FVL) tags, adding 900MHz, low-energy Bluetooth (BLE) and a new LED light to expand use cases while maximizing efficiency, productivity and safety for shippers.
“The RT-270 is ushering in the next generation of optimization for FVL,” says Adrian Jennings, chief product officer, Cognosos. “The additional functionality enabled by including both 900MHz and Bluetooth will open up new solutions for some of the most challenging issues our customers face. While real-time location is a core and critical capability of our platform, our ultimate goal is to leverage location intelligence to help drive powerful changes that help our customers save time and money and enable them to provide the best customer experience possible.”
- Leveraging the RT-270’s BLE technology and new ultra-bright LED light, Cognosos’ SpotLight eliminates the guesswork of locating vehicles. With the click of a button in the Cognosos app, lot and yard personnel can activate SpotLight, making the LED flash on a single vehicle or batch of vehicles, giving personnel a visual cue that enables them to go directly to the needed vehicle without having to visually verify the VIN number.
- Additionally, the RT-270’s flashing LED also extends the ability for teams to locate and load vehicles throughout evening and nighttime hours and in inclement weather.
