An overwhelming majority of people do not know that GPS tracking has uses outside of directing you to, and from, local haunts. True, technology advances and newer software now allow you to get directions in English, French, or Spanish. That is impressive, but hardly all that can be done with such a valuable tool. So what else can that same technology do?
Back to Its Roots
Did you know that GPS technology was originally used by the military? Politicians and military officials tracked important movements using GPS data. Gps trackers can also be used in a nautical setting, military, navy, or otherwise, to locate ships, boats, and submarines. Weather can sometimes interfere with important GPS satellite signals. Researchers around the globe are working to fix that problem, and make trackers as reliable as possible.
Vehicle GPS tracking
According to the World Market GPS Forecast, GPS shipments may increase as much as 20% by the end of 2013. One of the reasons for this peak in GPS sales and shipments can be attributed to more and more people realizing the benefits of GPS fleet tracking. For companies with fleets of vehicles, including bus and cab services, vehicle tracking = peace of mind. GPS technology allows these companies to track where public vehicles are, and where they will be going. This helps them plan more efficiently, and better serve customers. Live updates on traffic conditions, delays, and more are just a few of the benefits of GPS fleet tracking.
Whether you want to measure Mount Everest, or track a fleet of cabs, GPS technology is opening up possibilities for everyone.
