Vehicle tracking – What is it?

Track vehicles in real-time, save money & time on the road

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, traveling over the speed limit by just 5 mph can increase fuel consumption by nearly 10%. Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration, and braking) wastes gas.

It can lower your gas mileage by roughly 15% to 30% at highway speeds and 10% to 40% in stop-and-go traffic. Driver feedback devices can help you drive more efficiently.

A recent study suggests that they can help the average driver improve fuel economy by about 3% and that those using them to save fuel can improve gas mileage by about 10%.

How could Vehicle Tracking solve this problem?

Vehicle tracking, or fleet tracking, connects the location of your vehicles with software that collects fleet data. This fleet management solution shows precisely the time spent behind the wheel and when, where and how your fleet is utilized.

Vehicle tracking can be the pivotal edge over your business competitors. Investing in a good vehicle tracking device can help you monitor your employees, keeping track of your cargo thus ensuring timely delivery of your products and services.

How does the Vehicle Tracking work?

Basically, the vehicle tracking systems work in a loop of GPS, digital maps and custom made special software. Mobile data devices mounted on vehicles transmit two pieces of information they get from satellites (realtime) and transmit telemetric information to data banks on servers.

Vehicles can be tracked on their instantaneous and history records via a computer and smartphone / tablet by using special software making it possible to visualize all information from vehicles, and to modify alarms and program statuses of vehicles. This structure forms the basis for functioning of the vehicle tracking systems.
