Tracking & Tracing
- runs on android smartphones and on CareLAN devices with GPS-sensor
- captures and sends position data in just a few seconds
- recording of the way happens with an exactness of a second
- getting the length of travelled way
- detection of break times and places
- logbook functions
- position map: current position of all devices
- tracking: where is which device
- tracing: how far the device travelled
Field of application
- monitor and optimize logistic processes
- situation pictures of open areas, construction sites and events
- supporting log books
- search and find machines and devices
- and many more…
Why with OKIT?
Examples for process assistance are:
- real-time determination of bottlenecks in the logistic process and signalling
- movement pattern recognition matching to process steps
- prediction and recommendation systems based on real data
- conflation of different GEO- and sensor-datasources
- real-time correlation of movement-data with sensor-data based on machine-learning
Also the GHANS platform is located in Germany. So OKIT can guarantee a high amount of security based on the German and European laws.
- download the OKIT.GHANS sensor app with your smartphone at:
- execute the following steps to install the app
- go to the settings of the app and insert the prefix under wich the position data is supposed to be send to the GHANS server (the prefix is available in the browser based WebMap application after registration and login)
at the moment you cant download the app via google play store because there the dowloads are only available personalised.
When we found a solution for this problem the app will be available at the playstore too.
- login at the AgileAS-server at:
- if you can already see the >WebMap< logo, please continue with step (7)
- at OKIT.Accounting, change to the application-tab
- click on >WebMap< then on >Nutzung Beginnen<
- add your account at >Rollenzuweisung< to the list of users
- change to >Meine Apps<
- click on the >WebMap< icon
Now you can see the hole situation puicture for all your registered devices.
Please note that you can only see devices with a fitting prefix. You can see your prefix by clicking the tracking-icon in the top left in the WebMap application.
Privacy and funktion
The android app is starting in the foreground, even when the smartphone is locked. The app will hand out status reports, even if it runs in background.
So the app is not designed or made for secret observation.
It is unproblematic to track your own movements. Tracking the position data of machines, vehicles and facilities is unproblematic too in most cases.
If the collected data can be personalised, you should get used to the latest data protection laws. Neither WebMap nor OKIT.GHANS are linking GEO-data with personalised data. No personalised data will be collected. Not even pseudonymised.
The app is sending the data collected till then in a period of a few seconds in a bundle of data. In continuous running of the app and the average mobile network errors this can lead to a data volume of round about 300MByte. In different conditions the needed data volume can be much higher because of the necessity to send packages multiple times. We are working on solutions to drastically reduce the needed data volume.
The energy expenditure of the smartphone is higher because of continuous use of the GPS sensor and the data stream. Please ensure a sufficient energy supply. You can order 12/24V USB adapter from OKIT, strong enough to ensure a consistent energy supply and usage. We even would be glad to help you at the choice and procurement of a fitting smartphone.
For the usage of the smartphones and CareLan devices we offer special fitted M2M tariffs (Machine to Machine mobile tariffs).

In case of loosing your mobile connection the app cannot transmit the data to the GHANS-server. In this case the application is storing the information till the connection is working properly again. So the route tracking is even possible with temporary disrupted mobile network.
The offers of OKIT.WebMap, OKIT.GHANS, OKIT.Accounting and AgileAS are only directed to commercial and public users.
