Nowadays, you will need to have to make an advanced vehicle tracking system that has increased rapidly.
The vehicle tracking system is designed to know the position of the vehicle. A tracking system is developed by using GPS and GSM modules to locate the user’s vehicle easily.
GPS module is used to track the location of the vehicle in the form of values such as latitude and longitude. These systems will facilitate the user to determine the actual location of the vehicle, its tentative arrival time, and speed.
The vehicle tracking system leverages the Global Positioning System (GPS) to provide the exact location data.
Our fleet solutions have helped many vehicle businesses in automating the operations while reducing the cost.
Features to have-in for Live Tracking Applications
There are so many vehicle tracking systems & applications available in the market and among them, it became very difficult for the intended audience to pick the best one which will be able to cater to their needs.
Hence in this article, we are briefing out some of the cool features which are necessary to fulfill users’ expectations to have a full-fledged system to manage their vehicles or fleets.
1. Live and Real-Time Tracking
With the integration of the GPS tracking device and GPS technology, it becomes very easy to track the vehicle in real-time. This will help users to track the movement of vehicles from one point to another over a map. The speed of the vehicle can also be monitored with this functionality. The interface should be intuitive and easy to use enabling the management of multiple vehicles simultaneously.
2. Trip Monitoring
The application should have an interface to display the list of the trips made by the vehicle on the map. The system should be capable enough to display information like distance traveled, stoppages, speed, etc.
3. Regular Updates
The best part of the tracking solution is that it keeps the users connected by sending notifications. The system will send instant notifications or alerts for various activities performed like overspeeding alert, Trip start alert, route deviation alert, and excessive stoppage alert, etc.
4. Alltime Accessibility
In today’s connected world it becomes very easy to have each piece of information at your fingertips.
Users can access the desired data on the web or apps, especially for vehicle tracking parents can easily track the school bus or the vehicles carrying their children, Fleet managers can keep track of their fleet location.
The simple whenever anyplace access with easy-to-understand application keeps you in the stream with your vehicle’s movement continuously regardless of where you are.
The GeoTag functionality allows users to view or manage the geographical boundaries around the interesting area.
Users will receive notifications when the vehicle enters or leaves the marked points or the locations.
6. Operational Analysis
This easy-to-use platform allows users to manage the fleets owned. They will be able to generate various records or reports for the vehicles. Fleet managers or vehicle owners will be able to track and analyze information on their vehicles over a while.
This will help users to generate various graphical reports based on total distance traveled, idle time, overspeeding, stoppages, and utilization.
Benefits of Vehicle Tracking Application
1. Optimal Vehicle Utilization:
The tracking apps help to know about the usage of the vehicle to avoid any breakdown and improve its maintenance.
2. Fuel Cost Reduction:
A vehicle tracking solution helps in optimizing the route for every shipment or delivery trip. This saves fuel consumption even with multiple stops.
The cost saved for each trip adds up and helps reduce fuel costs to a great extent.
3. SOS Alerts:
4. Financial Management:
5. Optimize Resources:
Cost for developing a vehicle tracking Application
The cost of the vehicle tracking application depends on the requirement shared like what all features and functionalities do the client requires.
Once we will have all the information then with the help of the technology experts we do the calculation of the hours required to execute to have a full-fledged system meeting the expectation of the client.
The cost for the development of the application can also be calculated using the below-mentioned formula
Total Development Cost = Number of hours required for development X Hourly Rate of the developer
Tentative hours required for the development of a vehicle tracking solution with the above-mentioned features will be around 400 hours approximately and may tend to increase or decrease based on the requirements as it may differ from business to business.
GPS-enabled real-time vehicle tracking system is one of the most common applications that communicate traffic information to the web, integrate traffic-related information from other GPS devices, and identify the most efficient route based on the aggregate traffic data.
