GPS - Vehicle Tracking System
GPS technology is commonly used in VTS and vehicle movement can be tracked on Electronic Maps via the specialized software.
The GPS tracking device fits into the vehicle and captures GPS location information at regular intervals to a central server. Many modern vehicle tracking devices combine both active and passive tracking abilities. When a cellular network is available then tracking device transmits data to a server; when a network is not available the device stores data in internal memory and will transmit stored data to the server later when the network becomes available again.
The other vehicle information can be captured include fuel tank status, engine temperature, altitude, door open/close, tire pressure, cut off fuel, turn off ignition, battery status, GSM area, number of GPS satellites in view, emergency button status, engine idling, computed odometer, engine RPM, GPRS status and a lot more.
