Tracker’s mesh network recovers £4 million worth of stolen vehicles

Fleet news logo

Since its launch in March 2012, Tracker's mesh network has led to the recovery of £4,327,700 worth of stolen vehicles.

The Tracker mesh network is a vehicle crime detection system which uses other vehicles already fitted with Tracker SVR units to identify stolen vehicles also fitted with Tracker.

The Mesh Network acts as a listening device. When a vehicle fitted with Tracker Locate or Tracker Plant passes any Tracker SVR equipped vehicle that has been reported stolen, it automatically sends a signal to Tracker providing the location of the stolen asset - even if it is hidden in a garage, container or underground car park. 

Both drivers are totally unaware that the stolen vehicle has been identified by Tracker’s mesh network.

Stephen Doran, managing director of Tracker, said: "90% of stolen cars fitted with Tracker are returned to their owners and 80% of these are recovered within 24hrs. But with mesh network's ever-expanding web, designed to catch car criminals, we hope to recover more vehicles faster than ever."
