How Does Real Time GPS Tracking Work

2017/10/23 14:09:01

Tracking in real time is enabled by brief signals, or "pings," sent by the GPS unit to the satellite that's tracking it. Since most GPS units also include navigation functionality, the satellite is also pinging the GPS unit back with information like street names, turn-by-turn directions, and points of interest.

Telematics adds one more layer to the process, since the satellite connection is likewise pinging the fleet manager's tracking software, sending information packets on speed, location, and the other metrics needed by the fleet manager. When those pings are sufficiently close together, the vehicle's status can be tracked in real time.
