Falcon offers the vehicle tracking systems which work in a loop of GPS, GSM/GPRS, digital maps and special software. Mobile data devices mounted on vehicles transmit two pieces of information they get from satellites – real time when the satellite information was transmitted and position of the satellite in orbit at the time of transmission - and transmit telemetric information such as temperature to control and communication centers via the GSM/GPRS network. Information received as such are then compiled thanks to special software and recorded in a databank on servers. On the user side, vehicles can be tracked on their instantaneous and history records via a computer and smart phone / tablet by using special software making it possible to visualize all information from vehicles, and to modify alarms and program statuses of vehicles. This structure forms the basis for functioning of the vehicle tracking systems.
Major constituents of the GPS-based tracking are:
GPS tracking: The device fits into the vehicle and captures the GPS location information apart from other vehicle information at regular intervals to a central server. Other vehicle information can, altitude, reverse geocoding, door open/close, cut off fuel, turn off ignition, battery status, GSM area code/cell code decoded, number of GPS satellites in view, glass open/close, emergency button status, cumulative idling, computed odometer, throttle position, GPRS status and a lot more. Capability of these devices actually decide the final capability of the whole tracking system; the vehicle tracking systems, in addition to providing the vehicle's location data, feature a wide range of communication ports , allowing to check their status and control or automate their operation.
GPS tracking server: The tracking server has three responsibilities: receiving data from the GPS tracking unit, securely storing it, and serving this information on demand to the user.
vehicle tracking system is the system that allows tracking and controlling of vehicles via an online computer, smart phone, tablet, etc. on a 7/24 basis thanks to GPS satellites. Vehicle tracking systems make it possible to have an instantaneous and history tracking of vehicle speeds, the routes they followed, stopping points, idling times on maps providing a registry and check point with past and present reports.
