Real-time location systems track an object's or a vehicles location in real-time, usually in a contained space. These systems use tags which are worn by people or assets or vehicles and wireless signals are received by reference points which determine the location.
Real Time Location System Market is growing rapidly and the market is being fuelled by growing opportunities in process industries, manufacturing industries, transportation and many others. Vehicle tracking systems are becoming popular as a form of fleet management. Such a tool is valuable in increasing the safety of drivers, helping to cut costs and improving the efficiency of a fleet.
One of the main benefits of GPS tracking devices is that they provide information in real time. This means that if an accident was to occur or there was an emergency of some kind, then this would be detected immediately, and appropriate assistance could be provided. On the other hand, real-time tracking is a good form of fleet management. Vehicles can be monitored far more closely, as their exact whereabouts are always known.

Vehicle tracking systems mean that it's possible to know where a vehicle is at anytime. This is because the GPS device is a modem and it sends a signal out to an antenna. In turn, the antenna sends a signal to a Low Earth Orbit satellite. This type of satellite makes up the iridium-meshed network that is spread all around the world. When the signal reaches a satellite, it sends this information to a Web application from which the data can be interpreted. This data can be transmitted within seconds so that it's possible to know the whereabouts of a vehicle, irrespective of its location.
