An Internet of Things solutions provider in the wearable GPS technology business GTX Corp, has announced the launch of its new GPS tracker and Near Field Communication (NFC), a digital ID system called Rover Tracker.
Not only does the system provide on demand GPS location information, Rover Tracker also includes Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, creating a secure link connecting your real time profile and contact information to the person who finds your pet.
The GPS Rover Tracker will be the first GTX product to include NFC technology. This enables the Company to show the value of providing a unique single physical and digital ID with real time location and information delivery. The pairing of GPS and NFC supports GTX Corp’s expansion into blockchain security and asset management across multiple distribution and supply chains.
Over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year and only about 17% of lost dogs and 2% of lost cats that enter shelters are returned to their original owners, estimates the American Humane Association. The great news is, the GPS Rover Tracker puts pet owners in control. It technology provides an affordable, innovative and proactive approach for a safe return and a happy reunion of lost pets.
“Our new GPS and NFC digital ID system will provide seamless onboarding, contact and location information on lost pets,” stated Theresa Gordon, GTX Corp NFC and blockchain advisor and project manager. “Individuals who find a lost dog or cat can tap their smartphones and get detailed information about the pet and owner, to alert them immediately. This provides both proactive and reactive opportunities for a pet owner versus losing a pet, then posting, calling and searching, waiting for someone to find them and bring them to vet or shelter to check for a chip. RoverTracker is affordable, noninvasive, and is easily attached to a collar or harness. GPS and NFC are global technologies, allowing anyone with a smartphone to receive pertinent information. Truly a win-win for fur babies and their humans.”
