Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) / Global Positioning Satellite (GPS)
Automatic vehicle location or AVL is a means for determining the geographic location of a vehicle or asset and transmitting this information to a point where it can be used. The location is determined using GPS, and the transmission mechanism is a satellite, terrestrial radio or cellular connection from the vehicle to a radio receiver, satellite or nearby cell tower.
With global positioning satellite (GPS) technology you can manage vehicles whenever and wherever you like. You can locate the closest vehicle to a new job, verify vehicle stops, and keep track of customer visits. GPS systems also help you dispatch more effectively by using fleet maps and driving directions.

Motorola's exclusive IMPRES technology provides a communication interface between radios, batteries and chargers, which automates battery maintenance and enhances the capabilities of two-way radio systems. Batteries that are charged and maintained at their optimal levels benefit from longer life, ensuring the reliability of the radio and the safety of the mission critical worker and community.
IMPRES charging, periodic automatic reconditioning and recalibration serve three purposes:
- Recalibrates batteries of all three chemistries: NiCd, NiMH, Lithium-Ion (Li-ion)
- Helps to minimize the memory effect in NiCd and NiMH batteries
- Utilizes battery data to optimally charge Lithium-Ion batteries
Motorola's IMPRES chargers evaluate the actual usage pattern of each IMPRES battery. This allows the charger to adapt to that individual battery's usage pattern and establish the optimal reconditioning and recalibration interval for that battery. IMPRES uses an adaptive algorithm, which relies on several factors to evaluate the need for reconditioning/recalibration. The system then automatically reconditions/recalibrates the battery as required. The intelligence within the IMPRES system automates the process - removing guesswork from determining the optimal reconditioning/recalibration interval.

Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA)
Licensed, professional two-way radio is on the verge of making the biggest leap forward since the invention of the transistor — the move from analog to digital. Digital radio offers many advantages over analog, including improved voice quality at greater range, better privacy, sophisticated call-control features, the ability to easily integrate with data systems, and more. We're now at the beginning of what will quickly become a large-scale migration to digital radio in professional applications. At the same time, regulatory pressures combined with real-world operating needs are driving radio manufacturers and users to communicate more information in a given slice of RF spectrum — in other words, to increase "spectral efficiency." Channels that historically carried a single call at a time are now being divided so they can carry two.
Two technologies exist to enable this "splitting" of channels, allowing multiple access on a single channel. Frequency-Division Multiple Access (FDMA) splits the channel frequency into two smaller sub-channels that can carry separate calls side-by-side. Time-Division Multiple Access (TDMA) preserves the full channel width, but divides it into alternating time slots that can each carry an individual call. Both technologies are already being used in North America to accomplish the FCC-mandated split of 25 kHz channels into 12.5 kHz channels, and they're both being used worldwide to accomplish similar increases in spectral efficiency whether currently mandated or not.
Two-slot 12.5 kHz TDMA-based systems, providing 6.25 kHz equivalency, is the right choice for most mobile professionals. Professional radio standards based on TDMA technology are already widely used around the world, and future requirements for even greater spectral efficiency are almost certain to be based on TDMA as well. Today and tomorrow, TDMA technology provides advantages of feature flexibility, lower equipment costs, longer battery life, future-readiness and the proven ability to increase spectral efficiency without risking increased congestion or radio channel interference.
Leveraging a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) platform, MOTOTRBO reduces overall equipment costs while supporting more users and more information in the same area and frequency. The performance and flexibility of TDMA make it the only serious choice for professional two-way digital radio.
