HOW DO GPS TRACKERS WORK?

Sean Horan3307 comments

Introduction

One of the most impactful innovations of the modern world has been GPS tracking. The thought of pulling out a map or memorizing directions seems nothing more than a distant memory these days. Although GPS tracking affects our daily lives, most of us do not know how it works or why they would even need to know. In this article, you will learn exactly how a GPS calculates its location and communicates this info back to you.

HOW DO GPS TRACKERS FIND THEIR LOCATION?

GPS trackers use a method called Trilateration to measure the distance of a point. Unlike triangulation, which uses the measurement of angles to determine location, trilateration uses the geometry of spheres to measure the distance between the tracker and the satellites. Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) is a general term describing any satellite constellation that provides positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services on a global or regional basis. The United States utilizes GPS, which is the most prevalent GNSS, and trilateration requires three or more satellites using precise clocks to measure the time it takes to ping the device which is then translated to distance. With three satellites providing this information the device can calculate the two intersection points, there being one in space and one on the Earth’s surface (Your Location). With the distance of a 4th satellite, your precise coordinates can be calculated without error.

Each satellite can calculate the distance. You can visualize a sphere around the satellite where the radii are the distance between the satellite and the tracker. The point where all 4 spheres intersect is the precise location of the GPS device.


Now that your device knows its location, it needs to communicate this data to a cell phone, mobile app, computer, etc., where the customer can make use of it. As long as a GPS tracker is receiving satellite signal it can store its location data in its internal memory buffer but to transmit that information remotely requires a SIM card.

 

 

 

The GPS device installed on the vehicle sends location data to the cell network. That data is broadcasted to the server hosting the web app associated with the device which can then be accessed by the client.


A GPS tracker’s operating system is simplistic with limited functionalities such as:

    • Receiving commands
    • Transmitting data:
      • Location
      • Speed
      • Motion
      • Directional

The features and tools used by clients to enhance their experience and capabilities are provided by the web app and can vary based on company. Optimus has a suite of helpful features to give you the best user experience:

    • Geofencing
    • Engine Cut off
    • Alerts:
      • Movement
      • Speeding
      • Power off
      • Harsh Braking/Accelerating/Turning
    • Detailed Reports
    • Historical Data
    • Send Commands:
      • Reporting frequency
      • Poll your position


CONCLUSION

The GPS satellites orbiting our planet have changed the course of history. With the genius of Trilateration and the power of GPS technology, ordinary people can tap into a system that yields the entire globe in the palm of your hand. Providing you with a bird’s eye view of all things dear to you and of value. Compliment that with Optimus Tracking’s top tier application and features. Get started today and protect your assets.

My husband and I lost $40,000 worth of Bitcoins and USDT to a fake cryptocurrency investment platform. A few months back, we saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency to make huge profits from our investments. We contacted a broker online who was pretending to be an account manager for a Forex trading firm, we invested a huge part of our retirement savings and business money into this platform not realizing it was all a scam to steal away our money. After weeks of trying to withdraw, this broker continued to request more money until we were broke and in debt, it felt as if we are losing our life. Fortunately for us, we saw an article about Jeanson James wizard we were not in a hurry to contact them but we did some research about their services and found out they could help us recover our money from these scammers, we contacted Jeanson James wizard and in a space of 72 hours, Jeanson James wizard was able to recover everything, this company did a thorough investigation with the information we provided them and ensured that every penny was returned to us, it felt so unreal how they were able to recover everything we have lost. We are truly grateful for the help of the Jeanson James wizard and we are putting this out there to everyone who needs their services, no scam zone. via email (jjameswizard@gmail.com) or Contact them at ( jjameswizard@gmail.com ) or Whatsapp: +31 6 30028304 For further questions.

Always apply caution whenever you see any crypto investments platform online, most of them are scams and don’t do the same mistake I did. I saw a cryptocurrency platform on Facebook and decided to invest with them, I invested over $200k worth of BTC and $69k worth of USDT, but it all turns out to be a scam company and I lost all my invested funds with them. Luckily I was able to recover all the lost funds without leaving a penny using DARKRECOVERYHACKS, I am glad that a friend introduced them to me and they helped me recover all my lost investments. It didn’t take them more than 3 days and I was able to recover all my lost funds. You can as well contact them to recover all your lost funds.

These cryptocurrencies scammers will go to any length to defraud their victims, I was scammed a few weeks ago through a YouTube channel about investing in cryptocurrency and forex trading, my wife and I had invested €700,000 of our hard-earned money into this platform, and we were scammed without any remorse from these scammers as they kept asking for more money. We had lost all hope and was bankrupt, we had lost our entire life to these conmen. My wife got sick and we couldn’t afford the hospital bills, it was such a difficult time in our life until we came across the services of WARDRIVERS CYBER SERVICE, a cryptocurrency recovery team that provides top-notch services for many years now. I acted upon the opportunity and quickly reached out to them, I provided all the information I had with me and the wallet addresses, every detail of the transaction, I couldn’t believe my eyes that WARDRIVERS CYBER SERVICE was able to recover our money and was able to track down these transactions to the conmen who we then provided their information to the authorities. We are gladly grateful to the service of WARDRIVERS CYBER SERVICE and appreciate their efforts in helping us get our life back together. If you are interested in their services, you can kindly contact them via their official Email. E-MAIL: WARDRIVERSCYBERSERVICE@TECHIE . COM

Investing in Bitcoin didn’t favor me as I expected , I got into bitcoin investment with a platform that I came across their Chanel on telegram at the beginning of the year thinking that by now I’d have made tons of profits , instead I was ripped off my savings . It’s quite awful how the rate of scam grow lately . I was not the only one involved with the company , I had introduced my cousin to it since I thought things were moving perfectly well, we both lost a total of £274,000 and my cousin blamed me for it all because he wouldn’t have gotten himself involved with the platform in anyway if I didn’t bring the idea up at the first place . Since I am to be blamed for this mess I had to look for a way to right my wrongs and I’m glad I finally did at last with the help of “VIRTUALHACKNET RECOVERY SERVICES” , a private firm that specializes in Asset Recovery .
