Thalwil, Switzerland and Tokyo, Japan - October 10, 2016 - Nikken Lease has tapped into cutting-edge positioning and cellular technologies from u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global leader in wireless and positioning modules and chips, for its new trackable pallet, Transeeker.

“When we designed Transeeker, we wanted to ensure that we could locate a pallet precisely and retrieve it nationwide at low costs for our customers,” said Mr. Tsumura, Director Planning of Nikken Lease. “u-blox is just the right partner with excellent product performance and unique features such as CellLocate®.”

Embedded in Transeeker, the LISA-U200-62S of the LISA-U2 series is equipped with CellLocate®, u-blox’s proprietary hybrid positioning technology enabling stand alone location estimation based on surrounding GSM/UMTS cell information in conjunction with GPS positioning data. The module also offers worldwide W CDMA(UMTS) and GPRS/EDGE coverage, and an easy migration to u blox GSM/GPRS, CDMA and LTE modules. Also found in Transeeker, the EVA-7M single GNSS module features the reliable performance of the u-blox 7 positioning engine (receiving GPS, GLONASS, QZSS and SBAS signals) and delivers high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times in the ultra-compact EVA form factor.

“This collaboration with Nikken Lease should help us strengthen our position in the Japanese market as a key player for IoT applications,” explains Tesshu Naka, Country Manager of u-blox Japan. “We are looking forward to more collaboration with Nikken Lease.”
