Drop Box Notification System

Telemetry technology for Parcel Industry

Drop Box Notification System (DBNS). The patented technology notifies the parcel carrier when a package is deposited within a Parcel Drop Box and when it is picked up. The DBNS eliminates the need for drivers to go to empty drop boxes, wasting time, fuel, and vehicle wear and tear, thus helping a driver schedule pick-ups late in the day when deadlines are running tight. The DBNS also provides historical data on the Drop Box location, i.e., usage, pickup time, etc.

The information from the DBNS is available via a time based or event based file transfer, e-mail, pager, or posting to a WEB home page. The data can be easily incorporated into scheduling / dispatch systems currently used by parcel companies.

The DBNS also provides a series of options, i.e., Emergency button (to protect drivers during pickups), Tilt switch (indicating vandalism), Biological or explosive hazardous material monitoring (of packages), Weight (total weight of packages within the drop box), Conductivity sensor indicating liquid within the container, Photographing the user, Etc.

A post office box or public post box notification system option is also available from GSI. It provides notification when mail is put into a post office box. A message is sent to the box renter via e-mail, notifying the renter that the box has mail.

The "Patent" covers many forms of communication technology such as Modem, Cellular (Control Channel), Radio (BlueTooth, Zigbee, WIFI, Mesh, and Spread Spectrum), Satellite, etc. and new sensor technology. In addition, direct powering, solar / battery, and alternative powering methods are included within the patent and as options. Much of this technology is aimed at Home Land Security in addition to providing economic cost savings to the parcel industry and other industries with remote containers.

GSI-2543 Flood Gauge

Flood Gauge for remote notification of high water on roads.

The GSI-2543 Flood Gauge notifies 911 districts, highway departments, etc. of the presence of water on a street, road, or highway and provides a second notice when the water level makes the road impassable to emergency vehicles. If you live in an area where sudden downpours (rain) create draining problems, then you probably have seen stalled and abandoned cars due to street flooding.

The Flood Gauge (patent pending) will provide information to emergency groups (Ambulance, Fire Department, Police Department, etc.) on the safe routing of emergency vehicles during flooding conditions, i.e., storms, and hurricanes. It can be used by traffic organizations, traffic news (radio, TV, and Internet) to provide information on potential holdups or traffic congestion. The Flood Gauge indicates to city, county, state or other highway departments when to close streets, roads, or highways.

Level sensors within the Flood Gauge are actuated when water reaches a target level (Street grade and/or maximum operating height for emergency vehicles). The sensor upon an event signals the Cellular RTU within the Flood Gauge. The Cellular RTU then calls our IP host, providing cellular RTU I.D. and data. The I.P. Host software takes the RTU I.D. and matches it to the user (customer), location, defines what the event configuration means, and passes it to the customer via either a file transfer, a WEB page, e-mail, pager, phone voice recording, or fax.

The information from the Flood Gauge to the customer is usually received in less than a minute. The (File Transfer) information can be integrated with other customer software (mapping, dispatch, etc.) to show the flooded areas to be avoided.

Other versions of the Flood Gauge are designed for the continuous level (or flow) monitoring of creeks, streams, rivers, and lakes.
