The gateway has a built-in Global Navigation Satellite System and a Cell-based location engine in combination with a proprietary RF location engine to calculate the position. A major challenge in bicycle protection is battery management and detection of false alarm notifications. ECIS intelligent bicycle communication system combines an ultra low power detection mode with specific algorythms to guarantee long battery life and accurate positioning and alarming. The built-in quad-band gsm module reports the information ( position, lock/unlock, movement, etc) back to the server. In case no communication link is present, the gateway will look of a RF hub to pass the information or store the information on the device until a communication can be established.
