GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

Topic: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

We have a need to be able to add the capture of fingerprint data in GPS tag. We have a rental company that wants to use GPS tag to authenticate drivers and also as an approval mechanism for customers requesting overtime or additional services from drivers. The fingerprint scanner can be the native scanner or one plugged into the USB port. Is this possible?

GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

If you can use Wiatrack Pro, I could extend it for this task. But in this case I will need the fingerprint scanner (or mobile device) from you.

Also I can suggest to use NFC tags for authentication. It would be simpler to develop and you would have more variety in hardware. Sure it will work only if drivers use _your_ hardware. It won't work if every driver can choose his own device.

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

We looked at the tag option but these can be given to other drivers. The fingerprint or use of a driver "selfie" photo that can be asked for at the start of a shift then randomly during the shift is a safer option.

Let me take a look at Wiatrack again ...I tried it some time back ... what is the cost of the Pro version now?

One Wiatrack Pro license costs 19 Euros, but there are noticeable quantity rebates (up to more than 50%!). And I think you need more than one installation smile

If you will decide to test it, please download the apk directly from my website (see my signature for link).

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

JohnG, as we've discussed over the phone the following scheme (with some minor script development) can be used.
1. install both GPS tag and mobile Wialon (with a separate user for each driver) on the drivers phone
2. by a schedule / whenever needed start sending automated push notifications.
3. stop notifications only when a photo (param) arrives from the specified unit.

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

I think, the more professional solution would be: use a android device with fingerprint reader, ask Kalaschnikov for a special version, have a real unfakeable system. With Photo, barcode scans etc. all kind of providers of such service failed totaly here because users are to clever and fake all this systems.

(by the way, i also see some usage scenarios for that!)

Thank you for recommendation, Wolfgang  smile
Fingerprint is doable but it depends on the hardware. The device should have such fingerprint scanner.
There are also other possibilities (they can be faked too, but not so simple):
- NFC tags
- Bluetooth beacons

HI ,
We too interested in such solution .

Sure, it is possible. But the "solution" should be defined first. What do you want to have? How should it work? These and other questions should be answered first. Then we can start to develop the app.  So please contact me if you want to have such solution.

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

We need to separate business trips and private trips
and calculate Business trips milage separately.
Maybe ,
Once the authorized with finger print "Business" mode should start
Scan again to disable the "Business Mode" end and switches to "Private Mode"

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

OK. I have a question: why is fingerprint authorization necessary? Is a simple button (or switch) not enough?
Something like this: http://wpwiatrack.wialon-consulting.de/ … ing_en.png
but instead of "Vacant"-> "Business", and instead of "Occupied" -> "Private" ?

Hi ,

This is good , but our client needs only the person who travels in the vehicles to authorized it using NFC or finger print.

Re: GPS Tag enhancement to capture fingerprints

Given the interest in this solution is there a way on the forum to collaboratly develop requierments? Doing individual posts is not a good solution. NFC integration into GPS tag is also good to have for asset capture during maintenance.
