Vehicle Tracking System

The New and Improved Vehicle Tracking System

GPS System

GPS, or Global Positioning Satellite, tracking has been around for years now. Your conception, therefore, of a vehicle tracking system is probably a little outmoded. You probably think that a vehicle tracking system can just tell you where a tracked vehicle is at any moment in time. Possibly, then you can determine its speed by taking average location readings over a period of time.


Well, yes, in one sense and no in many others. The modern GPS Tracking System is well capable of telling you where your vehicle is - and it is also able to tell you how fast it is going. On top of that, though, it can tell you in what direction it is travelling, how much fuel it is using, how fast exactly it is going at any given point of time, how much oil it is using: basically anything at all. The modern vehicle tracking system can tell you so much about the vehicle you are tracking that you might as well actually be in it, or looking under its bonnet.

The way all this works is a lot simpler than you might have thought. Sensory information is simply relayed up to the tracking control centre along with positioning information: so you end up using the data stream that tells you where your vehicle is, to piggyback in a load of information on how it is, and where it is going. The results, for fleet managers and companies all over the United Kingdom, are sensational. With a robust suite of end user reports and software functions, a fleet manager can use the modern vehicle tracking system to create a complete picture of the successes and failures of his or her whole fleet protocol.

You can use modern vehicle tracking software to work out what routes you should use, and which ones are either too slow or cost too much in fuel. You can pin point areas and practices where fuel or oil usage is not optimised. You can find better ways of adhering to working time directives for lorry and coach drivers without affecting the efficiency of your route planning and staffing rotas. You can see everything that happens to every vehicle in your fleet, 24 hours of every day.


The modern Vehicle Tracking System is not expensive: because it is mostly net and software based, which means that you pay for licenses but very little hardware. Most shared business technology is now going this way. Users do not need to worry about hardware because almost all hardware is really just mirrored servers and computers existing out in the cyber spatial atmosphere of the net. You pay for your licensing and you pay for the tracker that goes in your vehicle: and that's it. For that, your new look modern vehicle tracking system is able to give you all of the information and functionality described above - enabling you to keep such a close watch on the way your fleet works that you are pretty much guaranteed to start saving money on overheads within the first couple of months in use.
