Swedish WTS (Wonder Technology Solutions) and u-blox, the global leader in wireless and positioning semiconductors today announced that WTS has launched Trax, the world’s smallest and smartest personal tracking device for children and pets. Based on u-blox’ GNSS smart antenna and cellular module, the tiny tracker can be located anywhere, anytime via a free Android or iPhone mobile phone app.


In addition to real time tracking, Trax provides flexible geofence alerts, and can even monitor how fast your teenager is driving. It also works indoors thanks to a proprietary dead reckoning algorithm that delivers a position even when satellites are out of sight. Accurate down to 1.5 meters, the robust, water-resistant device also provides an “augmented reality” mode that helps users locate their trackers using a Smartphone’s built-in camera view.

To achieve the smallest possible size, Trax takes advantage of u-blox’ CAM-M8Q GNSS receiver module which has a built-in antenna. CAM-M8Q (Chip Antenna Module) provides both small size (9.6 x 14.0 x 1.95 mm) and multi-GNSS capability. It is based on a u-blox M8 chip and incorporates a chip antenna, SAW filter, LNA, TCXO and RTC crystal. The surface-mount module is also extremely low in height making very thin customer designs possible.

“Trax is the world’s smallest and most versatile personal tracking device available, packed with features designed to provide peace of mind to parents and pet owners almost anywhere in the world,” said Fredrik Danelius, managing director at WTS. “By combining the leading GNSS and cellular technologies from u‑blox, we have designed a tiny, reliable, low-cost device that protects our most valuable family members: children and pets.”

Trax comes with an integrated SIM-card and two years of free data and roaming in 33 countries. It is charged via USB and typically lasts between two and four days on a full battery. For wireless connectivity, the device contains u‑blox’ SARA-G3 GSM/GPRS module which is footprint compatible with u-blox’ 3G SARA-U2 module for easy 2G to 3G upgrade.

“Trax is an elegant and sophisticated example of our embedded GNSS and cellular modules combined to protect people’s loved ones”, said Pasi Alajoki, area sales manager at u-blox. “It is an important application of our mobile communications and global positioning technology where performance, size and power consumption play a critical role. We are proud WTS chose u-blox for Trax.”

Imperial Cat announces that they’re yet again expanding their popular line of Scratch ‘n Shapes to include even more Halloween themed scratchers. Their high-quality, eco-friendly and natural feline lifestyle products’ new fall inspired line will include festive pumpkin shapes, a spooky fishbone, a hanging skeleton, and several other spooky prints.

“We extended our line of products to include more holiday themed designs so pet parents can add to their festive décor without bringing in potentially hazardous decorations,” said Kristie Hamilton, Imperial Cat’s Director of Sales. “Traditional decorations can be choking hazards, but with our latest seasonal additions, owners can add to their holiday décor with pet-friendly decorations that specifically cater to their cat’s needs and lifestyle.”

Imperial Cat’s popular line of Scratch ‘n Shapes were developed to satisfy the feline’s instinctive need to scratch while simultaneously providing a place for the cat to stretch, play or even sleep! And thanks to the horizontal and hanging variations, pet owners can choose the shape and style that fits their cat’s scratching preference and their home’s space.

Scratch ‘n Shapes are made in the USA from 100 percent post consumer recycled materials and are 100 percent recyclable after kitty’s use. The honeycomb texture of the Scratch ‘n Shapes offers the feel of natural tree bark, so cats will instinctively sink their claws into the scratchers, instead of home furnishings. Plus, each scratcher includes a bag of Certified Organic Catnip to encourage the cat to play and to entice him to return often.

And to compliment the new scratchers, check out Imperial Cat’s coordinating Halloween themed Cat ‘n Around plush toys. Filled with Organic Catnip, the new Cat ‘n Around seasonal characters include a candy corn shape, a Frankenstein figure and a spooky ghost, and are made in the USA. Prices start at $9.95 for the new Scratch ‘n Shapes and $5.95 for the new Cat ‘n Around toys.

The no-fuss, non-slip treaded Power Paws — premium, patented canine socks — are tough enough to withstand the roughest pup’s activities while reassuring apprehensive elder dogs.

Provide the traction dogs need on slippery floors and a layer of protection between the dog’s nails and the things he or she likes to scratch (i.e. expensive hardwood floors and cabinetry) with Power Paws. And worn outside, these multi-purpose socks protect your dog’s paws in “rocky” situations, (i.e. hot pavements, salty sidewalks and rocky terrain).
