How Does the Company Track the Trucks?
- June 3, 2021
In the time of technology, we all know that truck tracking is a common practice using trucking software company track the trucks but do you know how does it work.
Global positioning system (GPS) you might have heard of this name earlier. This is the technology that made tracking possible whether it's a mobile phone or a vehicle you can track anything it sounds, easy but it's not initially this technology was used by The U.S Department of Defense (DOD). The system was initially designed for the operation of the U. S. military. But with time today, there are also many civil users of GPS across the whole world. GPS tracking is a complex process there are 24 satellites and their ground station working 24X7 to make it possible to track things having a GPS device installed in it.
A GPS tracking system uses the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network. This network incorporates a range of satellites that use microwave signals that are transmitted to GPS devices to give information on location, vehicle speed, time, and direction. So, a GPS tracking system can potentially give both real-time and historic navigation data on any kind of journey. The two types of navigation tracking are their active and passive some of the trucking software company uses active tracking while some use passive tracking.
The GPS receivers not only track the exact location but can also compute velocity and time. The positions can even be computed in three-dimensional views with the help of four GPS satellite signals. The control of the Positioning System consists of different tracking stations that are located across the globe. These monitoring stations help in tracking signals from the GPS satellites that are continuously orbiting the earth. Space vehicles transmit microwave carrier signals. The GPS receivers and convert these satellite signals so that one can estimate the actual position, velocity, and time of the vehicle.
An active GPS tracking system is also known as a real-time system which is offered by Avaal truck management software as this method automatically sends the information on the GPS to a central tracking portal or system in real-time as it happens. This system is the better option for commercial purposes such as fleet tracking or monitoring of people, to know exactly where they are, whether they are on time and whether they are where they are supposed to be during a journey. This is also a useful way of monitoring the behavior of employees as they carry out their work and of streamlining internal processes and procedures for delivery fleets.
