The Hardware

In order to track a vehicle, we need to fix a GPS vehicle tracking hardware on the vehicle to be monitored. The hardware unit has a build-in GPS (Global Positioning System) and a GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) module. GPS module connects to satellite and receives the location information. GPRS module transfers this information to the server. The server stores this information onto a database to be fetched.

The Software

The software module of the tracking system receives the data from the hardware unit and displays the location, speed and time information on a web, desktop or a mobile application. The information from the tracking device is stored on a database. The information stored in the database is retrieved and formatted in various forms to give the desired result.
