Barge Tracking with eTrac Engineering

eTrac Engineering and Robots Everywhere Testing Bargetrac in Sausalito Harbor, California
Sep 16, 2011

eTrac Engineering was our first major client as a consulting company, and we operated as their principal design contractors even before founding Robots Everywhere. In 2011, we built a solar powered tracker for their barges. The BargeTrac system is a solar powered low current circuit. It is an evolution of the proprietary eTrac circuit board. BargeTrac uses two GPS units to improve positional accuracy and generate accurate heading data on metal barges on which a compass would not be effective.
