The GPS tracking device is usually integrated into the vehicle or carried by a person so that the latter can be tracked accurately. The location which is recorded onto the device is transmitted via cellular or satellite modem embedded in the tracker.
What makes up a GPS Tracker?
Based on the type, a GPS tracking device can have or omit modules depending upon the usage requirement.
Broadly, GPS trackers are broken down into 5 categories, namely;
- Data Loggers: These devices log the position or the location coordinates of the device on the internal memory that can be later accessed through downloadable data.
- Data Pushers: These devices are the most common type of trackers widely used. These devices usually transmit the data in the form of location, along with information about other on-board diagnostics to a designated server at regular intervals.
- Data Pullers: Unlike data pushers, data pullers are always on and can transmit data as often as one wants to. Data pullers are more commonly used in conjugation with tracking devices with a receiver module and a cellular network that can be triggered by sending a message wirelessly to it.
- Convert GPS Trackers: These are your regular trackers being put to use in everyday life. The only catch here is that these trackers are designed in a particular manner so that they mimic regular objects.
- Vehicle OBD Trackers: OBD trackers can be easily plugged into the on-board diagnostics of a vehicle. The unit is powered by the obd unit present on the vehicle. Additionally, OBD trackers communicate with other sub-systems of the on-board diagnostics to obtain data about vehicle performance, fuel consumption among other things.
