2. GPS Server: A GPS Tracking Server is an Internet Server. It has two responsibilities, 1. receive data from the gps tracking unit and store it to the data base, and 2. send this data to the user interface via the Internet as requested by the user.
3. User Interface: The user interface is the Computer Application which display’s the vehicle details like location, fuel, routes travelled and reports etc to the user (i.e. the fleet manager). It allows real time tracking of one or more vehicles displaying the vehicle’s current location and routes taken on an online Map eg. Google, Bing etc.
Additionaly, fleet managers can also specify Geo-Fences: virtual boundaries. These can be specified for the vehicles and in the event that these boundaries are crossed by the vehicle, an alert is sent (in the form of emails or sms) to the fleet manager.
SOS buttons are provided to be used in case of an emergency to send alerts. Such systems may also be equipped with a camera to connect to the SOS button, handset phone to communicate with the manager and LCD to display incoming messages.
