A web-based vehicle tracking solution utilizes the GPS technology to track the physical location of a vehicle, person or asset. This movement is displayed in real-time using mapping and fleet management software which may differ in terms of usage, complexity or efficiency.
Here are some brief interesting facts about the revolutionary GPS:
GPS stands for Global Positioning System, the only system that can show your exact position on Earth in any weather, at any given time no matter where you are.
The concept of GPS was started by the US Department of Defense since the late 1960s but the first satellite, Navstar 1 was only launched in February 1978. In March 1996 the US President authorized the GPS free for civilian users on a continuous, worldwide basis.
Though there are many civil users of GPS around the world, the system was designed and is operated by the American military.
The GPS revolves around a satellite-based navigation system consisting of 24 satellites orbiting the Earth.
GPS technology can be used by any person or company if they have a GPS receiver.
In a nutshell, GPS provides the simultaneous answers to where you are, where you are going to, what is the best way to go there and when you can get there.
GPS provides specially coded signals that are processed in a GPS receiver which enable the receiver to compute the position, time and velocity.
There are at least 24 operational GPS satellites at all times (27 in total with 3 as extras or reserves in case any one of them fails). These satellites are operated by the US Air Force and orbit with a period of 12 hours. Ground stations are used to track each satellite’s orbit precisely.
Each of these solar-powered satellites circles the Earth at around 19,300km, making two complete rotations every day. The orbits are arranged in a way that at any given time, anywhere on Earth, there are at least 4 satellites visible in our skies.
GPS satellites are also equipped with back-up batteries to keep them running in the event of a solar eclipse when there is no sun. Each satellite also has small rocket boosters to keep them flying in the correct path.
Four GPS satellite signals are used to compute positions in three dimensions and the time offset in the receiver’s clock.
Nowadays, GPS receivers are highly accurate due to their parallel multi-channel designs.
A GPS receiver locates four or more of these satellites, calculate the distance to each and uses this information to deduce its own location. Most are accurate within an average of 15 meters.
A satellite’s lifespan is around a decade. Replacements are constantly being built, perfected and launched into orbit.
