Vehicle tracking

What is Vehicle Tracking?

A vehicle tracking system or solution is an electronic device installed in vehicles that collects useful data and enables the owner to track the vehicles' location and their precise movements in real-time. Vehicle tracking systems are classified into two categories - passive and active. A passive system does not provide real-time information, but stores the data on the tracking unit until the vehicle returns to the depot or office. On the other hand, an active vehicle tracking system is commonly used for tracking one or more vehicles in real-time.

Automatic vehicle location technology

Vehicle tracking systems use GPS / GLONASS technology or other automatic vehicle location technology to record information transmitted from the installed hardware, such as the location, speed, and the direction of the vehicle without the need for interaction or intervention from the driver. The user can view the vehicle information through the Internet or other specialised software.

Benefits

Vehicle tracking systems are majorly useful for companies with a fleet of vehicles. These systems - 

  • Allow for easy management of the business operation, such as routing, monitoring driving behaviour, dispatch and security
  • Increase company efficiency
  • Reduce fuels costs
  • Improve job allocation
  • Allow to track and trace elements
  • Enable data logging, geo fencing, emergency services, driver ID, security alarm system, and voice system
