Technology has played a great role in improving the thing. Initial it was very much difficult for a person to manage his feet of vehicles. The invention of the technology like tracking system such as GPS Tracking system, Satellite tracking, Vehicle tracking, and alarm system has now made tracking of the vehicle possible for the fleet owners. These tracking systems not only help in knowing the current location of the vehicles but also has improved the business for the owner. These devices generate real time data of the location for the owner so that he can easily monitor where is the vehicle is and thus reducing the problems of not getting to the place of delivery on time.
Initial there were many issue with the fleet owner like, delivery not on time, excess use of fuel, etc as no one has information of where the vehicle is and what is the driver of the vehicle doing once the vehicle leaves from the source station to the destination. One can only communicate with the vehicle once it reaches the destination station. With the use of Vehicle tracking system in truck or any of the vehicle used for such long distance transportation, it became possible to track the exact location of the vehicle and thus the driver of the truck now cannot drive the way he use to. You can keep an eye on the route so that your vehicle follows the right road to destination and thus you can now cut off the extra expenses on fuel. You delivery will be on time and thus ultimately hike in your business.
Now let’s have a brief look on how the Tracking devices work and what all you need for installing such advance and useful devices into your fleets. A Vehicle tracking device consists of a GPS locator, a transmitter, and a recorder. In some older tracking devices the transmitters were not used so they were unable to send information in real time, instead it keep all the record of the speed and location in the recorder attached to it.
The GPS locators collect information of the location and speed by connecting it to a satellite and send it to the transmitter is available and to the recorder attached to it. The transmitter uses the mobile for transmitting this information to the computer at the base station. The base station computer receives the data and calculates the exact location of the vehicle on the basis of the data and finally a user can access the data from the computer output screen. This way the fleet owner can instruct the person on the vehicle to go in the right direction if he is diverted of the route to his destination.
