How does GPS vehicle tracking solution works?

GPS is a satel­lite-based radio navigation system device developed by the US Department of Defense. Anyone traveling with GPS tracking can localize their own position and velocity in real-time, thanks to orbiting GPS satellites that are free to use, 24/7, anywhere in the world. This is the base for GPS vehicle tracking solutions.

Our GPS vehicle tracking device is enhanced by a commu­nic­ation channel that links business fleets to the office and provides detailed vehicle tracking data in real-time. This information is neatly presented online so that you can quickly track where your vehicles are, manage job dispatch and workflow via Bluetooth®, and improve fuel efficiency through the analysis of the drivers' driving styles.

Every vehicle tracking device has an integrated GPS receiver to enable GPS for vehicle tracking and a GSM transmitter to broadcast a vehicle's location coordinates. Back at the office, fleet managers simply log onto our fleet management solution Webfleet,a secure online application, that in real-time allows you to track vehicle location, along with driver behavior, and the trip of each vehicle equipped with a GPS vehicle tracking device on their fleet. Location data is refreshed every minute, so you always have updated information about your fleet, so you can make important operational decisions.

How does GPS vehicle tracking solution works?

A GPS vehicle tracking device relies on a transmitter inside a vehicle's navigation device, which sends out a signal that is received by satellites in space. Through this, GPS tracking can pinpoint in real-time the exact location of a vehicle, down to its latitude, longitude, direction, and speed. A passive GPS vehicle tracking system tracks a vehicle's location and saves data that can be downloaded for later analysis. An active GPS system automat­ically sends this information to a centralized database for real-time tracking and tracing.

A GPS vehicle tracking system has several benefits for fleets:

  • Optimized route planning for increased efficiency and productivity of cars, vans, or trucks in a business' fleet.
  • Greater accuracy of service times, leading to more satisfied customers due to real-time GPS tracking.
  • 24/7 real-time access to the location data of your fleet, which can help detect and quickly react to driver behavior, theft, or unauthorized use of the vehicle.
  • Access to important fleet insights to help improve business operations and profit­ab­ility.
  • Reduced admin­is­tration time thanks to less paperwork and fewer phone calls to drivers.

Monitoring driving styles with GPS vehicle tracking solution

The LINK, a GPS vehicle tracking device, also has a G-force sensor to detect accel­er­ation and abrupt movements such as harsh braking and oversteering, along with current speed and speeding. By tracking these movements [on Webfleet], you can quickly see which driving behaviors are pushing up your fuel bill and take steps to encourage a more efficient driving style. This way, you are making fleet management easy.
