Chapter 1. Introduction

y
Thank you for your purchasing the CAREU U1

o nl
Vehicle Tracker. We are very pleased to introduce
you our excellent product, and you will enjoy great
benefits by applying such a smart device. The
CAREU U1 Vehicle Tracker is an all-in-one
device that integrates multiple applications of GPS
(Global Position System), GSM (Global System
for Mobile Communication) and GIS (Geographic
Information Systems) with each other.
Designed with the latest GPS technology, the CAREU U1 delivers positioning message by GSM

us e
wireless transmission to GIS platform, and then helps back-end users proceed with the analysis
and the applications of vehicle transport, management, anti-theft, security and tracking.

1.2 Scope

y
This document will guides you to start the CAREU U1 Vehicle Tracker. However, as this

o nl
document contains basic device configuration only, please see the CAREU U1 Protocol
Document for the advanced information.

1.3 About CAREU U1


The CAREU U1 Vehicle Tracker transmits the wireless signals such as location, peripheral,
and vehicle control data to a control center. The onboard GPS receiver provides users with
location data including speed, direction, mileage and altitude. It uses an onboard GSM/

us e
GPRS module to accomplish wireless transmission.

A microcontroller can probe location and command data at regular intervals, derive actions
from location, peripheral and control data, and execute such actions.

Among the best features of the CAREU U1 Vehicle Tracker, in particular, they transmit data
in ASCII mode (Intellitrac X Series compatible mode) or binary mode.

Peripheral data indicates the status of various peripherals connected to and/or controlled by
seil
the device. The peripherals include, but not limited to, door locks/un-locks, starter interrupt,
ignition, battery, engine and panic button.

The firmware in the device applies intelligent filtering to overcome coverage limitations for
both GPS and GSM/GPRS networks.

Motion sensor controls the status of the device, whether in sleep, idle or fully-powered
co n
mode, and thereby controls the amount of current consumed by the device.

Backup battery and tamper sensing GPS Antennas primarily indicate the loss of Main
Power and the interruption of GPS antenna connectivity.

The device supports over-the-air firmware upgrade to deliver additional functionality without
physically touching the device once installed.
G eo

In consideration of technicality and marketability, the CAREU U1 has so many excellences


to be competitive enough to stand out in the market. With regard to the technicality, the
CAREU U1 saves and records more data even under inactive communication staus, and
it also provides better power management, coexistence of GPRS and SMS modes, 1-Wire
interface, direct connection to Temperature Sensor, and up to three serial ports. When it
comes to the marketability, the CAREU U1 users are provided with the convenience that
its firmware can be upgraded through mini USB without disassembling the device.

The DS1990A serial number iButton is a rugged data carrier that serves as an
seil
electronic registration number for automatic identification. Data is transferred serially
through the 1-Wire protocol, which requires only a single data lead and a ground
return. Every DS1990A is factory lasered with a guaranteed unique 64-bit registration
number that allows for absolute traceability. The durable stainless-steel iButton
package is highly resistant to environmental hazards such as dirt, moisture, and
shock. Its compact coin-shaped profile is self-aligning with mating receptacles, allowing
the DS1990A to be used easily by human operators. Accessories enable the DS1990A
iButton to be mounted on almost any object, including containers, pallets, and bags.

Although 1-Wire networks are often quite "free form" in structure, they usually fit into
a few generalized categories, based on the distribution of the 1-Wire slaves and the

o nl
organization of the interconnecting wires.

1) Linear topology. The 1-Wire bus is a single pair, starting from the master and
extending to the farthest slave device. Other slaves are attached to the 1-Wire bus
with insignificant (<3m) branches or "stubs."

2) Stubbed topology. The 1-Wire bus is a single main line, starting at the master and
extending to the farthest slave. Other slaves are attached to the main line through
branches or stubs 3m or more in length.

AT$SMSDST command to be issued into HyperTerminal should be:

AT$SMSDST=+886123456789

OK
