We can access our service from anywhere with an Internet connection. This allows our operations centre and operations managers to monitor progress and control from a PC, a tablet, or even our mobile phones.
Unlike many other systems which claim to be live, our system actually is, without the need to manually poll any vehicles! We track vehicle location and progress in real time... LIVE!
Due to the high number of updates included it is easy to produce a journey snail trail showing the exact route taken by a vehicle.
We store up to 90 days of data and through the comprehensive selection of reports available, the internet vehicle tracking system allows us to pull out any information we may require.
All the maps within our system will zoom in to street level, ensuring a user can see exactly where a vehicle is located. The mapping is also Europe wide and enable us to quickly pinpoint our vehicles location to assist our driver and customers
A geofence is effectively an area set within the website that can be alarmed for entrance and exit. The geofence can be set anywhere by simply entering a postcode or drawing the area on a map. The number of geofences is unlimited. We have created extensive geofencing parameters within our system to alert us of strategic waypoints throughout Europe, Border Crossing, Ports, Bridges and Cities. To ensure our 24 hours’ operations control centre receives a constant stream of updates and trigger points without the need to constantly monitor each and every vehicle.
Brilliantly we would say but here's the technical bit..
The global positioning system (GPS) consists of 24 operational satellites (with several spares) orbiting the earth at an altitude of approximately 11,000 miles. The satellites orbit the earth twice per day in a pattern which ensures that at least 4 satellites can be viewed from the earth at any position any time of the day. Typically, however between 5 and 7 satellites may be in view.
These satellites broadcast signals which are analysed by GPS receivers on the earth. The signals carry information such as the satellite idenitifier, it’s position, and an extremely accurate date and time (derived from an on board atomic clock). GPS receivers on the ground use the signal from at least 4 satellites to determine their own position with an accuracy of around 10 to 20 metres.
Our GPS receivers also contains a GSM GPRS device inside (much like that found inside a mobile phone). This allows the receiver to transmit its information from the receiver back to the host server in real time via the internet
