Tag: GPS

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. The system provides critical capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The United States government created the system, maintains it, and makes it freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver.

What is the difference between satellite trackers, GSM trackers, and standalone trackers?

What is the difference between satellite trackers, GSM trackers, and standalone trackers?
There are many ways to determine the position of an asset but we will assume the most common application where a global network of satellite's are used. The current big three networks are GPS, Galileo, and Glonass. To make explaining this easier, we will use the term "GPS" for all three networks as the differentiation is not necessary. The first step in tracking, is determining the location of the device. This requires determining the location...
