Fleet tracking is a Management Solution that uses GPS to monitor the activity of tracked assets (vehicles, equipment, workers). It is often referred to as vehicle tracking, AVL (Automatic Vehicle Locator) LBS (Location Based Services). A fleet is generally a collection of assets such as cars, trucks, heavy equipment, field workers as well as powered and non-powered units such as trailers, light towers, Frac Tanks, etc.
The process of tracking uses telematics technology to collect data from a fleet of assets. This data is normally collected in near real time (actively) so it is more useful for fleet managers, who use the data to make strategic decisions about operations (which vehicle should I dispatch to a new job, where is the nearest crane, how many generators do we have in the yard, has my lone worker returned from the jobsite etc).

SATCOMM GPS supplies a variety of GPS tracking units which can be wired directly into the tracked asset or simply plugged into the OBD Port using a Y-Splitter Cable. Either option allows the device to be hidden to help prevent tampering.
We also are able to offer solar powered units, long life battery powered units as well as both Satellite and Cellular modem units for the data transmission.
Almost, in some cases. There is a cost for every GPS coordinate transmitted for live tracking systems. The more frequent the tracking device reports to the portal, the more expensive the monthly subscription service can be. In reality outside of the sales world of “tell you want to hear” there is a latency between the GPS unit reporting its location to the satellite and then having to transmit that data via satellite or cellular transmission based on signal strength and availability. Realistically, the most granular reporting you can expect is approximately 20-30 seconds to an industry standard of 2 minutes.
Some systems log GPS data based on driving behavior, not a set time interval. This tends to provide a higher resolution of the actual vehicle path traveled but at the standard market rate. This service is very affordable when this level of resolution is chosen.
