HOW DOES GPS HAWK VEHICLE TRACKING WORK?

GPS Hawk vehicle tracking solutions combine sophisticated GPS tracking technology with flexible, advanced mapping and reporting software.

A GPS-enabled Vehicle Tracking Device is installed on each vehicle to collect and transmit tracking data via a cellular or satellite network, whichever works best for your operations. GPS tracking devices can be used to track people, vehicles and other assets, anywhere on Earth. Currently, there are 27 satellites orbiting the earth, 24 are operational, the other three will become operational if one of the satellites happen to fail. At any given time there are at least three satellites that are visible in the sky from a location. These satellites then triangulate on the position of the GPS tracking device. By continuing to triangulate the coordinates at regular intervals, the satellites can determine the speed of an object, the distance traveled and how long it has been stationary.

The device then delivers the data to the GPS Hawk hosted application which you can access through the Web or Mobile devices at any given time. You receive real-time vehicle tracking updates, including location, direction, speed, idle time, start/stop and much more – there is a wide range of events to choose from, allowing you to manage a tighter schedule and more efficient fleet.

GPS Hawk vehicle tracking software offers three ways to view and evaluate tracking data in a user-friendly package that will appeal to both novices and advanced computer users.

Digital map: Gives a historical, moment-by-moment replay. Shows when and where the vehicle traveled. Screen shows speedometer, clock with second hand and compass.

Satellite map: Accurately displays the driving path and stops on a satellite image.

Activity report: Gives a daily summary, divides driving activity into segments with detailed descriptions including starting address, departure time, time en route, arrival time, distance traveled and how long the vehicle stayed at each location.

The significance of second by second data is critical in providing a comprehensive, fluid replay of any and all historical tracking data.
