V Track, A vehicle tracking system combines the use of automatic vehicle location in individual vehicles with software that collects these fleet data for a comprehensive picture of vehicle locations. Modern vehicle tracking systems commonly use GPS or GLONASS technology for locating the vehicle, but other types of automatic vehicle location technology can also be used. Vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps via the internet or specialized software. Urban public transit authorities are an increasingly common user of vehicle tracking systems, particularly in large cities.
Major constituents of the GPS based tracking are:
GPS tracking device: the device fits into the vehicle and captures the GPS location information apart from other vehicle information at regular intervals to a central server. The other vehicle information can include
1. Fuel Amount, Cut off fuel.
2. Turn off ignition, Engine temperature.
3. Altitude, Reverse geocoding.
4. Door Open/Close, Glass open/close.
5. Turn on headlight, Turn on taillight.
6. Battery Status, Emergency Button Status.
7. GSM Area Code/Cell Code Decoded.
8. Number of GPS satellites in view.
9. Computed odometer, Cumulative idling.
10. Engine RPM, Tire Pressure.
11. Throttle position.
12. GPRS Status and lot more.
The capability of these devices actually decides the final capability of the whole tracking system.
