Loko: Durable, Open-Source Battery Operated GPS Tracker with Ultra Low Power Consumption

Loko: Durable, Open-Source Battery Operated GPS Tracker

Loko from Dronee is an open source, battery operated GPS tracker that sends navigation data to its receiver via peer-to-peer LoRa radio and also works anywhere, even if there is no 2G/ 3G/LTE coverage. Designed with Ultra Low Power consumption in mind, this can work 30+ days on a single charge with the tiny, built-in coin cell battery. It is a radio communication-based device that doesn’t require a sim-card/ monthly fee and is designed for harsh conditions and crashes.

This device is an excellent investment for drone owners to protect against the common occurrence of crashes and loss. Moreover, you can keep track of any important, expensive devices/belongings, which is important in a variety of personal and professional settings.

The Loko bundle has 2 units: The Ground unit (receiver), and the Air unit (transmitter). The Air unit transmits navigation data to the Ground unit at a pre-configured time interval, and the Ground unit transmits the received data to a smartphone app via bluetooth (iPhone only with this version). The app automatically shows the location of any Loko Air modules on a 2D map.
