How does GPS for vehicle tracking systems work?

GPS is a satel­lite-based radio navigation system developed by the US Department of Defence. Anyone travelling with a GPS receiver can determine their own position and velocity, thanks to orbiting GPS satellites that are free to use, 24/7, from anywhere in the world. This is the basis for vehicle tracking systems.

Our GPS vehicle tracking system is enhanced by a commu­nic­a­tions channel that links your fleet to the office and provides detailed vehicle tracking data. This information is neatly presented online so that you can quickly see where your vehicles are, manage job dispatch and workflow via Bluetooth®, and improve fuel efficiency through the analysis of driving styles.

Every LINK (in-vehicle tracking system), has an integrated GPS receiver that enables GPS for vehicle tracking, and a GSM transmitter to broadcast a vehicle's location coordinates. Back in the office, fleet managers simply log on to our fleet management solution WEBFLEET, a secure online application, to monitor each vehicle's journey. Location data is refreshed every minute, so you always have the up-to-date information you need to make important operational decisions.

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

Enhancing GPS vehicle tracking systems

For an enhanced GPS vehicle tracking solution just add one of our PRO Driver Terminals. They enable two-way commu­nic­a­tions with the office for easier time management and job dispatch. And they connect to the LINK unit using Bluetooth and let drivers know when they need to change their driving style through Active Driver Feedback. Besides this, they provide you with full navigation including precisely accurate traffic information.

Return on investment in 6 to 9 months on average
