History and Benefits of GPS Tracking Systems
Technology today has reached a level that makes nothing really seem impossible. There was a time when we had no cell phones and so we could not even talk to one another as freely as we do today. But now with the GPS system involved in all smart phones we can also track each other’s location. Now that’s just crazy, isn’t it? Or is it?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defence. GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.
GPS tracking is accomplished with the help of a receiving & transmitting device that uses the Global Positioning System for tracking and navigating the exact location of vehicle, person, or other asset to which it is attached. Using the GSM Network to communicate, it can also be used for surveillance on people and assets with and without their consent. Spy Associates brings to us these high performing GPS tracking devices in the categories of GPS Fleet Tracking Equipment, GPS Real Time Tracking, Historical GPS Tracking, Live GPS Tracking, Magnetic GPS Tracking Devices and Real Time GPS Tracking Equipment.
Benefits of GPS tracking devices
GPS Trackers are usually very small, easy to conceal and can be hidden just about anywhere on a target vehicle or property. A GPS tracking system, for example, may be placed in a vehicle, on a cell phone, or inside Custom GPS devices, which can either be fixed or placed as a portable unit.
GPS provides information on exact location, anytime of day or night. It can also track the movement of a vehicle or person. A GPS tracking system can be used by a company to monitor the route and progress of a delivery truck, or to monitor high-valued assets in transit and also by parents to check on the location of their child. GPS Tracking devices have a lot of commercial value for cost savings to companies large and small.
GPS devices are also generally used to record the position of vehicles as they make their journeys either by storing data within the GPS tracking system itself, known as passive tracking, or by sending the information to a centralized database on a regular basis, known as active tracking. Letstrak offers an active GPS tracking system, also known as real-time system. Real time GPS tracking system is usually the best option for commercial purposes such as fleet tracking or monitoring of people, such as children or elderly. This is also a useful way of monitoring the behaviour of employees during work hours and shifts with company vehicles.
