The technological advances of the last decade have brought about hitherto unimagined changes in the way we go about our lives. The most remarkable of these changes has been the way we communicate- at work, in our personal lives and in the media. Never has it been so easy to communicate with others, no matter which part of the world they are in. Apart from interpersonal communications, the Internet and satellites have enabled us to keep track of people, places and things in the most remote parts of the world, 24/7. GPS or Global Positioning System is a major technology drive on this front.
GPS technology was initially developed in the United States for defense purposes. GPS uses satellite technology for its navigation system. The GPS navigation system can track a person or object fitted with GPS equipment irrespective of which part of the globe they’re in. The tracking range is quite accurate with a usual error range of about 100 meters. Further, the GPS bandwidth is available for free.
There is a wide range of GPS based tracking devices available today, that cater to different requirements. GPS specialist companies work with businesses to provided customized tracking systems for the specific requirements of each particular business.
