How does MIOT vehicle tracking systems work?
Satellite tracking is part of everyone’s daily life. With a wide range of applications, its operation is often not well known. How does it work?
The tracking origin: "GPS"
The GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based radio navigation system term derives from the American army. In 1973, GPS created the first satellite positioning technology.
GPS satellites that are free to use, 24/7, anywhere in the world, originally reserved for strictly military use, GPS will be freely available for civilian applications from 2000. Over the years, it has become an essential part of society.
MioT was one of the first companies to bring this technology to everyday products, pioneering its use in the satellite vehicle recovery system.
We've been innovating ever since and have developed, among other things, GPS vehicle tracking system for our business customers. Our GPS vehicle tracking system is enhanced by a communications channel that links your fleet to the office and provides detailed vehicle tracking data.
The common language often uses the only term “GPS” to refer to this technology, even if today is more accurate to talk about GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).
Indeed, other constellations and positioning systems have joined the American GPS.
Today, there are thousands of satellites orbiting the Earth. Among them, we can mention the satellites of the American GPS constellations, Russian GLONASS, European GALILEO, Chinese BEIDOU… All are not yet 100% operational. This is the case of GALILEO and BEIDOU,
which should be so from 2020.
The operating principle is based on the intersection of electromagnetic signals emitted by satellites. The MioT receives satellite signals defining satellite user segments whose geometric intersection allows location.
This cross-referencing of information allows MioT devices for better accuracy, almost instantaneous convergence times and 24/7 availability around the globe, MioT GNSS receivers are able to track many satellites at once.
Connecting Vehicles to people with MioT Tracking System
We've been innovating ever since and have developed, among other things, GNSS based vehicle tracking system for our business customers.
Our vehicle tracking system is enhanced by a communications channel that links you and your vehicle and fleet to the office and provides detailed vehicle tracking data.
This information is neatly presented online so that you can quickly see where your vehicles are, manage job dispatch and workflow via Bluetooth®, and improve fuel efficiency through the analysis of driving styles.
Every in-vehicle tracking system has an integrated GNSS receiver to enable vehicle tracking, and a GSM transmitter to broadcast a vehicle's location coordinates. Back in the office, fleet managers simply log on to our fleet management web secure online application, to monitor each vehicle's journey equipped with a vehicle tracking system. Location data is refreshed at every turn or at every minute, so you always have the up-to-date information you need to make important operational decisions.
Monitor Vehicles equipped with MioT Tracking System
MioT in-vehicle tracking system also has a g-force sensor to detect acceleration and abrupt movements such as harsh braking and oversteering, along with current speed and overspeeding. By tracking these movements on MioT web secure online application, you can quickly see which driving behaviors are pushing up your fuel bill and take steps to encourage a more efficient driving style. This way, you are making fleet management easy.
