GPS (Global Positioning System) is a space-based GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).

It provides people with reliable location information at all times in all weather. This technology can be used for many purposes such as communication, navigation systems, tracking

The ability for businesses to be able to manage movement and location of assets is a key part of the work of ODM and we are always checking our shipments to make sure products arrive on time at our customers locations.   GPS allows a single point of management with only small associated costs.

Our buying office in Shanghai has also been working on GPS Tracking devices for vehicles and we wanted to share some information about this with you. It is important to determine which types of Vehicle Tracking devices will fit to your business.

  • Passive devices allow you to store GPS location, speed, heading and sometimes a trigger event such as key on/off, door open/closed. Once the vehicle returns to a predetermined point, the device is removed and the data downloaded to a computer for control. These systems include auto download type that transfer data via wireless download.
  • Active devices also collect the same information but usually transmit the data in real-time via cellular or satellite networks to a computer or data center for evaluation.

Many modern vehicle tracking devices combine both active and passive tracking abilities. Indeed when a cellular network is available and a tracking device is connected it enables the transfer of the data to a server. When a network is not available the device stores data in internal memory and will transmit stored data to the server later when the network becomes available again.

We listed several different uses for this device:

  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery
  • Fleet Management
  • Field Service Management
  • Asset Tracking
  • Transit Tracking
  • Surveillance
  • Trailer Tracking
  • Field Sales

GPS Trackers/Navigators can be cutomized according to your needs. Different sizes & shapes are possible from the small pet GPS/GSM tracker to the very sophisticated digital screen including many options similar to the IPAD.  Do not hesitate to ask our sourcing office in China to help you for any inquiry.
