Check out our blog for more details about Particles tracking system


Built on the Particle Edge-to-Cloud IoT platform spanning integrated hardware, edge software, connectivity, and cloud-based management software, Particle’s Tracking System empowers customers to integrate real-time location of critical assets with other sensor data and control systems. Particle’s Tracker SoM and Tracker One can be modified, reconfigured, and reprogrammed to suit the needs of every customer, achieving the customizability of DIY systems with the speed of deployment of “off the shelf” products.

Particle Tracking Services: The Foundation

Particle’s Tracking Services provide foundational services including open source asset tracking firmware, device management and configuration capabilities, mapping and location services, remote “over-the-air” update functionality, as well as reporting and integration management.

Track critical asset data including real-time location and temperature, historical location and temperature, battery level, and more. All data is encrypted to ensure security and GDPR compliance. 

Tracker SoM: The Heart of Your Tracking Technology

Tracker SoM is a powerful, configurable, and extensible IoT System-on-Module (SoM) that  builds on Particle’s Tracking Services foundation and provides a powerful MCU, GNSS with 1.8m CEP_50 accuracy, and advanced peripherals in a compact form factor.

Tracker SoM serves as an accelerated starting point to organizations that require a tailored tracking solution for sophisticated applications as well as a fully-certified foundation for original equipment manufacturers developing commercial products.

Tracker One: Field-Ready Reference Product

Utilizing Particle Tracking Services and the Tracker SoM as a foundation, Tracker One is a fully-functional and field-ready tracker solution. Tracker One is fully certified, immediately deployable, and requires no additional development. 

Tracker One’s hardware design and firmware are open source and can be customize to suit your unique needs or act as a reference design for a fully custom product designed by either your engineering team or by Particle Studios, our in-house development team.

Reliable and Accurate Location Data

The onboard high-gain GNSS antenna with onboard dead-reckoning is accurate to 1.8 meters and is ready for worldwide operations with two pin-compatible versions: one for North America and one for EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia).

Built on the Particle Edge-to-Cloud IoT Platform

Particle’s Tracking System inherit the benefits of the Particle edge-to-cloud IoT Platform, an “all-in-one” solution spanning edge hardware, edge software (firmware), cellular connectivity, and cloud-based management software. Particle powers thousands of IoT products across a wide range of use cases with its flexible, reliable, scalable, and secure end-to-end platform.

Configurable for Your Needs; No Ph.D Required

Particle’s configurable Open Asset Tracker Library, in combination with its configuration cloud service, means that the Tracker SoM and Tracker One can be reconfigured without writing code, empowering you to add your own sensors and report that data along along with location data. Optimize the tracking system for your use case and balance critical monitoring insights with power and data consumption by configuring data publishing rates and triggers, wake on motion detection via the onboard IMU, crash detection, and customizable threshold publishing - all via the Particle Console.

Rapid Deployment or a Custom Solution? Yes.

Launch your asset tracking capabilities today with Tracker One while developing a custom tracking solution built on the same reference design, Tracking Services and the Tracker SoM to satisfy the precise needs of your use case.
