There would be very few who would not know the benefits vehicle tracking and the help it provides to both the business owners as well as the individuals.
We are currently in the twenty first century and everyone would be well aware of the fact that how a vehicle tracking system would help in protecting not just the company’s vehicles and track its course taken but it can also protect your own vehicle from any unwanted theft.
This would secure your expensive car from the hands of theft.
Now isn’t that great?
This edition is aimed to enlighten you with what is this vehicle tracking all about and most importantly what benefits can this bring to your society if at all.
Today many among us don use the GPS network system to find directions across the city but very few realize on the basic concept on which the entire system works.
There is no one sitting inside this GPS system which would be telling you the way to take or the direction which would be the best for you, instead it is the satellite which is present, programmed in such a manner that it can send in pictures which help you in finding the location or the vehicle which you are looking for.
The system works on the satellites which rotate around the planet earth and the mathematical calculation on which it is based upon.
GPS, the abbreviated form of Global Positioning system basically consists of about twenty seven positioning satellites which keep on orbiting the planet earth in giving us the required pictures at various regions across the globe.
Twenty four among these are operational ones and the three remaining are the backup satellites which are also present in cases of emergency when any one of the others might fail to work.
To ensure the fact that the whole of the globe is covered properly, the satellites are positioned in such a way that four among the others are always present in 6 of the orbital-planes of the earth’s planet.
The satellites which are present keep on emitting radio waves which transmit the information from what has been captured by the satellite to the GPS receiver.
Just one satellite would never be able to detect the location exactly, more than 3-4 would easily help in locating the direction with ease.
Apart from the location of the vehicle, the GPS vehicle tracking system can also detect the direction which the vehicle is taking and also the speed at which it is moving.
For working on this calculation, one needs to be aware of the location of the vehicle for tracing the same.
