Atlanta, GA – December 1, 2017 – MyDealerLot (MDL) announced today the availability their revolutionary Bloodhound™ product for locating vehicles using affordable mesh networking technology.
MDL’s new solution uses proprietary OBD-II powered devices that utilize mesh networking to eliminate costly infrastructure. Bloodhound can provide exact locations of vehicle and show them via pins dropped on a map of the dealership. Bloodhound also monitors key indicators of vehicle health including battery status, error codes, emissions readiness and start-up and movement events. Bloodhound devices are reusable and require minute amounts of power, unlike cell-based or infrastructure based solutions that can drain car batteries quickly.
“The problem of locating a vehicle for dealerships has existed for years. In fact, MDL first looked to track vehicles using active RFID when it was initially founded in 2008. With the rapid advancement of mesh networking technology and smart phones, we can deliver finite location services for dealers in ways and at costs not previously possible. The proprietary technology we utilize eliminates fixed infrastructure, simplifies installation, and reduces both setup and ongoing costs. It also creates a significant competitive advantage that will keep MDL ahead of the competition,” said Ken Karegeannes, MDL CEO.
MDL Bloodhound™ is capable of tracking inventory vehicles on campus and at remote locations.
