To develop a GPS (Global positioning system) AVL (automatic vehicle locator) tracking system
MetadataShow full item record
With today’s stand-alone global positioning system (GPS) receivers we are able to pinpoint our own location but what is more useful about these stand-alone GPS receivers is that they can transmit our position information to other receivers. These features which take into consideration important factors regarding both position (GPS) and data communications (GSM) can be combined together to build a wireless tracking system. In the ever growing metropolitan cities of today, one prime example being Bangladesh, we are faced with rising hindrances in terms of logistics such as traffic congestions, fleet management & also security issues such as increased car thefts, child hijacking and so on. To overcome all these limitations a basic tracking platform can be implemented in the form of a device (AVL) which when attached with our mobile assets can be located continuously (in an electronic map) from any remote place around the globe if only we have the access to the local GSM network. This is what we are trying to achieve through our project.
