in Gps

Small and large businesses in many industries use a GPS vehicle tracking system for remote data acquisition regarding their fleets of vehicles. There is asset tracking software that is specifically designed for industries such as oil and gas, construction, transportation, security, education and other industries.

Functions of GPS Vehicle Tracking Systems

Are you worried about the rising costs of fuel, or the environmental impact of your company’s fleet? One function of a comprehensive GPS vehicle tracking system is the ability to gather information about fuel efficiency for cost reduction and environmental monitoring purposes.

Businesses use GPS tracking information to gather data about engine and driver behavior. The information gathered about mileage, speed and engine performance can be used for predictive maintenance to prevent larger repairs later, reduce fuel consumption, lower energy costs and generate reports for compliance with regulatory reporting requirements.

Another useful feature of a GPS vehicle tracking system is the capability for alarm condition monitoring. This feature has been successfully used for theft recovery, vending management and generating emergency service alerts about the vehicles in your fleet. This aspect of the system can also result in reduced insurance premiums from many insurance companies.

How GPS Systems Work

The GPS vehicle tracking system includes a GPS receiver with an antenna that uses Global Positioning technology to determine the location of a vehicle and gather other data. Receivers are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes to be used on equipment and vehicles of any size and type for reliable asset tracking.
