What is real-time vehicle tracking?

Published on 20 February 15
Every GPS tracking solution provider advertise that the GPS tracking devices for automobiles can help you in tracking the vehicles real-time. Do you have a clear understanding of the term, real-time?

By real-time, we mean ‘now’, i.e. exactly at this point of time. This point of time may be 2 P.M. IST, 1 A.M. I.S.T. or whatever. The essence of real-time tracking is to let the administrator learn that right at this moment of time (Hour-Min-Sec), which he can see flashing in his watch, exactly where the vehicle is-- near which city, place, locality, landmark-- how many kilometers away from its next scheduled destination.

Real-time tracking is always done with reference to the standard time of the region, zone or the country where the vehicle operator is located and where the vehicle is moving.

A few countries in the world has got more than one standard time. Since their longitudinal distance is huge, only one longitude representing a single standard time cannot cover the entire expanse.

In countries like US it happens that the vehicle on the go and the administrator are at different time zones. Out there, ‘real-time’ tracking of vehicles needs a little bit of calculation.

Fortunately in India we deal with one and things are simple for you. Now let us explain how you will learn the real-time location of the vehicle with the help of GPS technology.

The GPS tracker devices have location sensors. Wherever they go, whether in motion or static, they fetch the geo-location information of that place and immediately pass on the data to a server with which they are connected.

A software application digitally transforms the location information into mapping. This entire process is continuous and so at any point of time, the administrator or the vehicle operator can open the map on his device and see exactly where the vehicle is.

This is what we call real-time vehicle tracking and even if your crew member try to make up stories, they will be caught red-handed since you know everything.

Apart from this, under GPS solution the real-time location information is also conveyed in terms of alerts. If the administrator has set the features in the device he can get instant SMS alert every time the vehicle leaves a client location or reaches the place.

The idea is to empower the administrators so that they can ensure on-time delivery, take immediate actions in case of emergency and keep a constant surveillance.
