GPS Tracking Explained

by Feb 25, 2020TECHNOLOGY

What Is GPS Tracking?

GPS Tracking is the method of tracking the location or whereabouts of an asset which may include a vehicle, a person or a piece of equipment.

In it’s the purest form, an asset to be tracked is fitted with a tracker device that is accompanied by a GPS receiver and a wireless transmitter which might be a 4G activated cellular sim card that transmits the recorded location at predesignated intervals to a remote data server.

Using a GPS tracking software solution, the precise location of the given asset can be tracked using a dynamically generated map interface.

The recorded information that is relayed in real-time over a 4G certified cellular network can be usually downloaded from a device once the latter is inspected. The data is collated through the means of data loggers which retain the location data over a slated period of time.

A GPS tracking software is generally employed to render the recorded data and the software translates the logged location data in forms of dots on a map. With the software, it’s quite easy to determine the route history, track a vehicle in real-time and determine the estimated time of arrival based on the asset’s location data.

GPS tracking as a solution can be employed in vehicle tracking and fleet management across industry verticals. A GPS tracker or a GPS tracking device with extended battery life is something that is crucial to make the most of the technology at play.

Generally, a GPS system utilises the GNSS – Global Navigation Satellite System. This network exploits a number of satellites that communicate through microwave signals which are in turn relayed to a GPS device to know the location, time, duration and speed of an asset or vehicle that is being tracked.

The functioning of the system is based on the trilateration metric that may be 2-D or 3-D in nature. With the emergence of handheld tech, use of mobile phone track & trace has increased over the years and GPS tracking software has been designed and integrated to be used on a handheld mobile phone.

The advantage of using a mobile app-based intuitive software are several which include the likes of real-time vehicle track & trace, a constant cellular network globally and ease of use.
