How does vehicle Satellite Tracking Technology work?
Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites transmit signals to equipment on the ground. Vehicle satellite tracking receivers passively receive satellite signals, they do not transmit it.
Each GPS satellite transmits data that indicates its location and the current time. All GPS satellites synchronize operations so that these signals are transmitted at the same instant. The signals, moving at the speed of light, arrive at a GPS receiver at slightly different times because some satellites are further away than others. The distance to the GPS satellites can be determined by estimating the amount of time it takes for their signals to reach the receiver. When the receiver estimates the distance to at least four GPS satellites, it can calculate its position in three dimensions. This procedure is known as Triangulation.
Our platform uses Google’s detailed mapping in conjunction with Vehicle Satellite Tracking technology to track the movement and location of vehicles and assets. The Vehicle Satellite Tracking System uses Internet (GPRS) as well as SMS text messaging, as a communication interface that allows you to control the system, sending and receiving requests for information to and from the vehicle.
