Global Positioning System, famously known by the acronym GPS, is the most widely used and one of the best vehicle tracking systems available. It aids the user to pin point the accurate position of a vehicle.
Now days, an important part of every traffic control system, fleet vehicles and automobiles, it was originally designed to aid military personnel. It assists users to know the traffic update, guides them to the perfect direction and also save them from any accidents.
The advent of this device made the life easier as before it was real tiring and frustrating being stuck in long and never ending traffic. While now, one can know the alternate and appropriate route to their destination if the primary route is having traffic.
GPS affixed vehicles are less prone to theft. Even if the car is stolen it can be easily detected if the GPS system is on.
The security system or indicators that informs you to close the door or put on your seat belt are part of this technology.
GPS vehicle tracking system has made a grand impact on the control of accident, as it quickly detects the movement of surrounding vehicles while you are traveling and then alerts you if your vehicle goes really close to other vehicle or on the wrong lane.
Developed countries are using this technology in a broad manner. GPS technologies are placed on every corner of the city and also on the highways that quickly detects any mishappening and inform the same to the traffic police. It even aids them in the free flow of traffic. A lane with lots of traffic can be given a ling green light then the other lane thus helping reduce the traffic of that lane.
Almost are the countries are using GPS vehicle system technology and every car now made has already built in GPS system. It is not only proving to be a great help of police but also helping parents to know the whereabouts of there loved ones. They can easily detect the position of their children and keep an eye on whether or not they are on right track (Though it remains a matter of controversy as it proves to be a hindrance in people private life.)
GPS technology uses satellite to determine the position of the vehicle and then the surrounding fixtures are generated, that guide the user. Vehicles have a GPS receiver attached to them, which receive the radio signals and send the same to the linked computer or display
It is hard to imagine life without GPS now, as it is a basic and important part of our lives, same like the trains or buses or metros or cars that we use.
