GPS/GPRS/GSM Based Mobile Asset Tracking
Source: Calsoft Labs
Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) enable the tracking of all kinds of mobile assets accurately and provide their real time positions to the owners on a 24 by 7 basis over the GPRS/GSM link. While the GPS provides the latitude/longitude information of the mobile asset a given time, this information can be transmitted to any place using the GPRS radio link. In fact, the asset can even have enough intelligence built into it to initiate calls using the GSM phone links. The technology and the cost of implementing this technology has come down drastically over the last few years making them very affordable to the general public.
