On Board Data Storage – No Lost Tracks if Gsm Unavailable
There is not 100% GSM data network coverage in Bangladesh. However most driveable streets are covered by a network and this is suitable for GPS tracking. If however a situation arises where the network is unavailable, the AVL stores data on board. This means that as the vehicle travels, its track is still being recorded. The moment the GSM network is available, all this data is sent to the Realtrac server. All tracks then become available to the customer and all reports and alerts will still apply.
Our hardware does not lose signal in rainy/cloudy conditions.
Private Customer Point of Interest (POI) Database With Dispatch
The Realtrac Points of Interest module allows you to add your customer/business/equipment locations to your map to be seen by your users only. Building your customer/equipment database will allow you to:
- Identify stops at customer locations on the map and in stop reports
- Search for customer/equipment and dispatch the nearest vehicle to that location
- Generate advanced reports such as Time on Site reports.
Points of interest are easily added by right clicking on the map and adding.
A geo-fence is a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area.A geo-fence could be dynamically generated—as in a radius around a point location, or a geo-fence can be a predefined set of boundaries (such as school zones or neighborhood boundaries).
The use of a geo-fence is called geo-fencing, and one example of usage involves a location-aware device of a location-based service (LBS) user entering or exiting a geo-fence. This activity could trigger an alert to the device’s user as well as messaging to the geo-fence operator. This info, which could contain the location of the device, could be sent to a mobile telephone or an email account.
Geofencing is a technological advancement in GPS fleet management that can be applied in different ways, for varying purposes. As a basic definition, geofencing is simply the capability to use signals from a device to pinpoint that device’s location (known as geolocation or geotracking) and draw a digital boundary to encircle the area, the fencing part of the word.
