DQ51 can be used as a stand-alone asset tracker with exceptionally long battery life for monitoring vehicles & other fixed/moving assets. It can additonally fuction as a 'gateway' to receive information from DQ56 wireless tags using its Bluetooth receiver. For example a DQ51 could be located in a warehouse, with wireless tags attached to pallets. The pallets' ID, approximate location and battery level are reported to the DQ51 at regular intervals when scanned, and uploaded to the tracking platform. Pallets moving between different warehouses can be monitored using a DQ51 in each location, with alerts set for tags missing or present.
