GPS is the most widely used tracking technology that provides solutions to fleet tracking. Almost all the fleet owners opt for this technology, as it is simple still powerful.
GPS technology aids the manager and owner in almost all activities related to fleet from maintaining paper work to keeping record and also helps in maintaining their vehicles. But the main purpose of the use of GPS is to track down the position of the fleet and of every vehicle and send or save the information.
Owner and manager want to track down their fleet to insure the security of the vehicle, and that of goods. Also monitoring helps them to guide the driver in critical situations.
Global Positioning System (GPS) uses the radio signals that are then received by the GPS receiver that come preloaded in the vehicle. However one can also install it from outside if a vehicle doesn?t have one. This signals helps GPS to map the exact location of vehicle and then the signals from nearby tower are used to generate a clear picture of surrounding. This image is thus displayed to both driver and owner that let them know where the vehicle is and where it is headed and which route would be the most efficient.
GPS gives them the exact position of the vehicle so that they can know which route the fleet is heading and is there any deviation from the original route. If there is deviation they can call the driver and know the reason.
Gps track down the fleet wherever it is and then send the details of the position to the system of the manager and owner even if they are sitting at a distant position.
Manager and owner can know the places of the halts that were made and the timing of the halts too. And as the driver knows that they are being watched the idling time is reduced dramatically and they are forced to work and deliver in time. This helps in avoiding over time and unnecessary fuel usage thus the operational cost is cut down.
So owners and manager looking for solutions related to fleet tracking must go for GPS, as it is the most reliable and most commonly used tracking technology in the fleet business.
