But the all these information are stored and can only be viewed once the fleet or vehicle is back from the fieldwork. This is the reason that they lack behind. Owner cannot monitor the real time movement of his fleet.
Fleet tracking device like GPS (Global Positioning System) and GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite Services) are mostly used by the owner and manager of the fleet. They work on the signals that are emitted by the satellite and the tower that are close to fleet. Using these signals the receiver that is attached to vehicle determines the exact position of the vehicle.
