By this point, you have a license to send data to HERE Tracking. Now we need to set up a device to actually send the data.
You have several options depending on what kind of device you want to use.
NOTE: Even once a device has a license installed, it cannot send data to HERE Tracking until the device is claimed by an end user (see Claiming ownership of a device).
As a fast way for evaluating HERE Tracking, download the HERE Tracker Android app from the Google Play Store. It acts like a 'Virtual Tracker' emulating an IoT device and sending its location data and related information to HERE Tracking. The app can be configured to with WLAN, BLE, Cell, GPS or any combination of technologies for getting its location information.
NOTE: HERE Tracking Android app should be used for evaluation and testing purposes only with HERE Tracking. It is not intended to replace a real IoT Tracker device.
HERE Tracking provides a C library and sample application via GitHub.
Follow the instructions in the project to install and use the sample application.
You may build your own tracker firmware that collects telemetry data and then you use HERE Tracking ingestion APIs to upload your ingestion data to HERE Tracking cloud.
HERE has partnered with tracker manufacturers for automotive, industrial and other use-cases. You can easily add new tracking devices using pre-configured HERE Tracking firmware. You can choose one of these devices:
