TRACONTROL joins WIN-Charta!

TRACONTROL joins WIN-Charta!

Businesses and consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the limits to our natural resources and concerned about the risks posed by climate change.
Companies need an effective way to develop reliable and effective structures for sustainable management.
Baden-Württemberg has responded to this need with the WIN-Charta, an easily implemented, transparent sustainability management system that is tailored to small and medium-sized enterprises.
It is the only German federal state with such a programme.
By signing the WIN-Charta, companies make a clear commitment to economic, ecological and social responsibility.
The WIN-Charta is an excellent way to make sustainable management a permanent part of a company’s mission statement.

The TRACONTROL Team will create all processes and documents within the next month!

Tenths Aniversary! It's CHIO time

We are back from our ICE-Adventure (http://tracontrol.com/index/news/?post=professional-position-and-timing-solution-gpstrac-on-ice) and are preparing now for another Equestrian Event.

And this is not just an equestrian event: it is THE EQUESTRIAN EVENT - the CHIO Aachen 2022!
(https://www.chioaachen.de)

What is a tech company like TRACONTROL doing at an equestrian event??

We are supporting the Eventing Competition (the Cross-Country-Part) with our PNT technology.
Again we are using our current workhorses "GPSTRAC-5" to track the Eventing Riders on their ride through the "Aachener Soers".

Each rider has a GPSTRAC-5 attached in a small pouch and could be tracked in real-time - any very precise!.

All this is visualized in a very professional application made by SAP (https://news.sap.com).

TRACONTROL supports this project since 2012!

[TIS] Wussten Sie schon ... ?

Wussten Sie, dass...

... die Dokumentation aller Arbeitsfortschritte während Reparaturen, Einstellarbeiten oder Überprüfung Ihres Gerätes, für uns dieselbe Priorität wie der Erfolg unserer Arbeit hat?

Wir legen großen Wert auf die Dokumentation des Verlaufs aller Arbeiten durch den Mitarbeiter, der Ihren Auftrag bearbeitet. Nicht nur in schriftlicher Form (für einige Gerätetypen haben wir strenge Ablauf- und Prüfpläne entwickelt), sondern auch in Form von Foto- und ggf. Videoaufnahmen. Dadurch haben wir die volle Kontrolle über den Verlauf der Aufträge in unserem Service.

Jeder Mitarbeiter, die sich um Ihr Gerät kümmert, erstellt eine Foto-Video-Dokumentation über den Verlauf der Arbeiten im unseren Unternehmen. Dadurch wissen wir auch genau, wer, wann und wie Ihr Auftrag bearbeitet wurde. Qualität bedeutet nicht nur eine erfolgreiche Reparatur des Gerätes, sondern eben auch die (auch nachträgliche) Überprüfung jeder Stufe, die das Gerät in unserem Unternehmen durchlaufen hat.

Sie können jederzeit Aufzeichnungen und Fotos vom Eingang des Geräts, während der Reparatur oder der Verpackung des Geräts anfordern. Wir glauben, dass diese Offenheit unser großer Vorteil ist.

Wenn Sie Fragen haben, wenden Sie sich bitte an unsere Vertreter, die Ihre Fragen gerne beantworten.

Professional Position and Timing Solution "GPSTRAC-5" on ICE!

Dear customers!

did your know, that our professional Position and Timing solution "GPSTRAC" does not only have a proven accurracy record in eqeestrian sports but also in Ice Speed Skating?

Guess what and read here what we did the last month':

Starting 2022 we were invited by Red Bull ("gives you wings") to be part of a world record attempt in Ice Speed Skating on natural ice.
Famous netherlands olymic champion Kjeld Nuis had performed already a record attempt in 2018 and finished it with unbelivable 93km/h record (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaYMassciDY).

Fastest man on Ice so far!

But after this record he thought about the next level: Is 100km/h possible? ...

So he and the Red Bull team started the "Quest for 100"-project!

They choose SCG (https://www.scgvisual.com) and TRACONTROL for professional timing and sports graphic services and of course we accepted that challenge.

We attended at a test event (without Ice ;)) in early March 2022 at Nordhorn Airfield in the north of germany for proving the complete setup including the newly designed windshield and of course our PNT Technology in this very special setup.

Finally we decided to use our current workhorse "GPSTRAC-5" equipped with our special "Collaborative RKT" Technology. This "C-RKT" uses several PNT sources and a little bit of Machine Learning support to optimize the navigational solution.
For this purpose we installed six of our devices: two at the towing car, two at the trailer with the windshield and two at Kjelds back.
The results of the testevent were very promising, but we found the we need to eliminate the interference of the PNT with Kjelds body movement. As GPSTRAC-5 has a build-in motion sensor is was a takeaway development request for us for the real record attempt.

The real record attempt took place in Lake Savalen, Norway.
A team of Ice-Professionals had started already in december 2021 with the preparation of an Ice-track with a total length of nearly 4000m.
The tickness of the Ice was more than one meter - more than enough for big trucks, cars and a famous Zamboni-Ice-Maker.

We chose the proven setup for our TRACONTROL PNT solution and started in to this multi-day experience.

Kjeld Nuis and the Rally-Car driver Seth Quintero started test-session after test-session to get the right feeling for the Ice-Track and the windshield and the team started its optimization procedures.

We collected a dataset for each run and presented our qualified measurement results after each session to the team. They were especially interested in the acceleration-curve of the Car and Kjeld and we all found out very quickly that this would be THE main parameter for optimization.

Erben Wennemakers, also a famous netherland olympic champion and "Sports Advisor" for this project was equipped with our smartphone app. With that, he was able to get the data from us visualized in-real-time!

The 6-Device setup turned out to be functioning very well and we found that also the temperature sub-zero has no impact on the performance of our GPSTRAC-5 devices. Especially the 2 devices in the trailer were completely covered with ice in the later afternoon after a track day.

Finally our PNT setup and the GPSTRAC-5 devices turned out to very robust in this un-real situation!

For the detailed coverage and if Kjeld could manage his record attempt please look at the official documentation!

... be excited!
