GPS Vehicle tracking system works with syndication of electronic device installed in vehicle, or fleet of vehicle with ICT (Information and communication technology) Infrastructure. The electronic device with GPS receivers installed in Vehicle helps to define the latitudinal and longitudinal degree of location, while they receive signals from satellite. The locational data and other information is sent to the base station (where the server and purpose-designed computer software are developed and installed) to collect and arrange all the information.
The collected information can be viewed using Software system installed on computer with internet connectivity. There are lot many companies that provide different interface to view and monitor the vehicle across different terrain. The data can be view in tabular form and also one can track & monitor the remote vehicle location on digital map also.
Devices used in Vehicle Tracking System:
GPS Tracking Unit: It uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) to determine the precise location of a vehicle, person, or other asset to which it is attached and to record the position of the asset at regular intervals. The recorded location data is transmitted to a central location data base, or internet-connected computer, using a cellular (GPRS or SMS), radio, or satellite modem embedded in the unit.
Immobilizer: It is installed inside the vehicle along with the device and gives access to the end user to control vehicle during abnormal activity, during theft and undesirable movement through remote vehicle immobilization.
GPS Antenna: Antenna helps to receive signals through satellite and it is connected with the GPS Tracking Unit. A good quality antenna helps to receive signals and provide seamless data stream.
Application of Vehicle Tracking System:
1. Load Vehicle Tracking: For inter-state transport companies, load tracking is very important. The companies have to ensure vehicle safety along with the expensive material they carry through roads.
2. School Bus Fleet Tracking: Because of increasing incidents with girls and children, as an enterprise, you need to ensure safety to the school students while carrying them from home to school then back to home. You can monitor Over-Speed and rash driving by School Bus Driver and proactively take measure to ensure safety.
3. Delivery Vehicle Tracking: On-time service is what everyone seeks today and especially with eatables and perishable items, time-bound delivery is very significant.
4. BPO Cab Tracking: Safety to Night BPO Cab is very much required. One cannot take chances and to provide the employee satisfaction and safety, vehicle tracking devices are very important.
