The geo-political conflict in the Middle East between Israel and terrorist organization Hamas has been dominating the recent news headlines. In short, after constant bombardment from rockets fired by Hamas terrorists into Israel, the Israeli intelligence found that the terrorist group was using a network of sophisticated tunnels to move weapons and assist in attacks. These tunnels became the strategic advantage Hamas had in attacking innocent Israeli citizens, and therefore the Israeli government felt it was necessary to develop a plan to both find and destroy these tunnels. After sending ground troops into Gaza to locate and eradicate the tunnel networks, it now appears that the conflict is nearing its temporary end, which is something Israel, the Palestinian people and governments across the world can feel relieved about. However, Israel is sadly no stranger to conflict and attack by Muslim extremists and it is likely not if, but when Hamas will regroup to continue its assault on the Israeli people. Although the conflict in the Middle East is complicated and deep, Israel may find an ally in a technology commonly used in the United States to help improve fleet management strategy. This technology is GPS tracking system technology and it could play a key role in reducing terrorist attacks.
GPS tracking systems are small devices that report locational data in a comprehensive and detailed fashion. This real-time tracking technology is commonly used for surveillance applications such as car tracking. When placed on a car, a GPS tracking system will document every spot a driver goes, the length of time the driver was at that spot and more. The GPS tracking systems also are engineered with the ability to communicate via alert (geo-fence & speed).
Israel is nation roughly the size of the state of New Jersey, but it faces a number of very unique challenges due to its proximity to countries such as Syria, Iran and Egypt, countries that have publicly announced their refusal to accept a Jewish state. What this results in is numerous terrorist plots and attacks being inflicted upon the Jewish nation. Therefore, Israel has to allocate numerous resources to defend itself, making GPS tracking technology advantageous in this very critical area of national security.
GPS tracking systems are designed with covert monitoring applications in mind, which is exactly how Israel could benefit from the technology. How law enforcement and military could use GPS is by tracking the vehicles of people they suspect are engaging in terrorist activities. Through the process of car tracking the Israelis would be able to determine who a potential terrorist is associating with, what locations they travel and more. This information may even be helpful in finding terrorist training camps or high ranking Hamas officials wanted by Israel.
Government use of surveillance technology is certainly intended to enhance national security and there are not many other nations in the world more concerned with national security than Israel. Therefore, employing a strategy that utilizes GPS vehicle tracking could be significantly influential in boosting security as well as helping the government bring terrorists to justice.Last Updated on Thursday, 07 August 2014 02:43
Student safety is always a top concern of school districts all across the United States. Another concern for school districts is bus fleet management, especially considering the recent rise in fuel costs. Looking at the different options to not only increase student safety and school bus management, school officials have chosen to move forward with a plan to equip several buses in Monroe County Tennessee with GPS vehicle tracking systems .
GPS tracking system technology for bus fleet management has become easier to use and more affordable over the past decade, making the real-time monitoring a feasible solution for school districts walking a tight rope of budgetary flexibility. What bus GPS tracking systems provide is a comprehensive amount of measurements and reports related to bus driving activity. This can include total mileage driven, data regarding vehicle idling and alerts if a bus driver is engaging in dangerous driving practices. Not to mention, the real-time tracking data can be accessed 24-7, giving school bus officials the ability to instantly view where students are being picked up and dropped off throughout the day.
Currently, Monroe is going through a testing process of the bus tracking systems in 10 district buses. The GPS tracking systems will even have the capability to transmit an alert if a bus is experiencing any mechanical issues. The GPS tracking initiative something that school officials believe will instantly benefit both students and the school district.
When asked about the new program that will equip school buses with GPS tracking systems, Charles Underwood, a representative for Monroe County schools, stated the safety aspect alone makes the vehicle management technology a noble investment. Knowing where buses are moving, if they are operating without mechanical issues and where they are traveling at all times of the day is important in asset management.
Do you think the investment in GPS tracking systems is a good or bad decision among the Monroe County schools?
Should all school districts employ bus tracking devices to improve student safety?Last Updated on Tuesday, 05 August 2014 23:14
Parents are always looking at the best ways to safeguard their children. This is why parents cap electrical outlets with plastic tabs, lock up cupboards and keep a constant watchful eye over their precious offspring. Parents love their children more than anything in the world and it is because of that deep bond that they are willing to invest in various products and technologies to enhance that personal protection. This is the reason why more and more parents are now inquiring about GPS tracking chips for kids that can provide the real-time locational data of that child anytime 24/7.
Real-time GPS trackers use satellite monitoring technology to determine where a person, asset or vehicle is located at any given time. These live GPS tracking systems also give users the ability to access historical data such as where a person was at yesterday, last month or last year! Real-time GPS tracking data can be easily obtained by the user who needs only to go online via cell phone or computer to observe the GPS tracking system information. With GPS tracking systems now being more accurate and affordable than ever before it has opened up additional consumer markets including personal GPS tracking applications such as child safety.
The simple answer is no. The more complex answer is no because the GPS tracking system will have no source of power, meaning battery. GPS devices are getting smaller and smaller but the power sources still are far too large to be implanted under the skin, making a GPS implant non-functional. Babies or kids cannot have a GPS implanted in their body or under their skin.
As a sales associate for a GPS monitoring device company that supplies trackers to consumers all over the globe, once parents learn that a GPS chip implant under the skin is not an option they then ask what is the best solution to track their kids? The answer is a portable tracker that can be carried or placed in a backpack. Personal GPS tracking devices that provide 15 consecutive hours of locational data and are roughly the size of a box of tic-tacs can be purchased for as little as $199 (not including service plan). These personal tracking systems provide live updates, historical movements and the ability to alert parents if a child steps outside a safe zone. This safe zone can be the family home, school or whatever the parent chooses.
GPS tracker chips that can be placed under the skin are a significant time away from being a reality on the consumer market but until that time comes there are still personal GPS tracking systems available to enhance family and child safety.Last Updated on Thursday, 31 July 2014 22:54
When it comes to GPS tracking systems what businesses and consumers want are solutions that update quickly and have long-lasting battery power. Finding a GPS tracking system that updates around 6 times per minute is fairly commonplace now that cellular technologies have continued to expand, but when it comes to battery-life the reality is almost all GPS systems aren't very adequate. This is because most vehicle tracking systems are only capable of offering 10-15 hours of GPS tracking when used the device is not pulling power from an outside source such as a car battery via hardwire connect or cigarette lighter port. This leaves many potential uses in a tough spot, that is of course before the launch of a new live GPS known as SilverCloud Overdrive.
SilverCloud Overdrive is a GPS vehicle management solution that can provide real-time updates as fast as 20 times per minute while also offering upwards of 60 hours of motion GPS tracking data. That intelligently engineered vehicle tracker even includes a motion detection system that will place the GPS unit into a mode of sleep when the target vehicle is parked. This revolutionary design extends battery life for upwards of 2 months! However, what really makes SilverCloud Overdrive an impressive GPS tracking system are the numerous features designed to enhance surveillance:
No Software Required
Mobile Phone Access
Updates 20x Per Minute
Safe Zone Alerts
Aggressive Driving Alerts
The applications related to GPS tracking continue grow as more people and businesses become acquainted with technology and can see firsthand the benefits of locational-based technologies. For example, it is now very common for parents to utilize GPS tracking systems to learn where a teen driver is going or if a elderly driver is still driving safely. And businesses continue calling upon fleet tracking GPS devices for a number of applications ranging from mileage accounting to automotive security. In fact, the GPS monitoring industry continues to grow at a rapid rate as companies seek ways to reduce inefficiencies and families seek digital tools to upgrade personal safety.
SilverCloud Overdrive is currently priced at $399.00 and like all GPS systems that provide live locational data does require a monthly data obligation. The data obligations start at $29.95 per month which provide unlimited updates 60 times per hour.Last Updated on Tuesday, 22 July 2014 22:36
Limousine companies are always looking at ways to improve business efficiency. That often means utilizing technology and management strategies to enhance limo security, improve estimated time of arrivals, reduce liabilities and of course provide the highest level of customer satisfaction to passengers. This is the reason limo businesses throughout the United Stated have been investing in GPS tracking systems.
Real-time GPS tracking systems are devices that connect to a limo and provide the business owner vast amounts of data that can provide significant value. Data such as where a limo is located if it is ever stolen, data regarding speeding if a limo driver is operating a vehicle at dangerous rates of velocity, data about vehicle idling, RPMs and so much more. Most importantly though GPS vehicle tracking systems for limos can help a limousine business manage multiple limousines operating in the field all through the use of a simple, user-friendly online interface. This web-based platform is awesome because it allows limousine business owners and managers to simultaneously access real-time GPS tracking system data. Not to mention, the multitude of benefits in terms of routing and coordination such a platform provides.
There are two options when it comes to a real-time GPS tracking system for a limo: portable and direct connect. The best portable solution is currently the SC Overdrive. This is because the tracking device will provide over 60 hours of wheels-in-motion vehicle tracking data, making the SC Overdrive the longest lasting limo tracker on the market in terms of battery strength. Those investing in the SC Overdrive also have the option to invest in a waterproof case accessory that will allow a limo company to covertly place the GPS tracking system underneath a limo. This can be a great way to determine if limo drivers are driving safely, efficiently and effectively.
Limo companies not wanting a portable solution and instead preferring a GPS tracking system that pulls power directly from a limousine will find the best device to be the Sync GPS. What makes the Sync GPS unique is that it connects right into the on board diagnostic port of a limo (6 and 9 pin connectors are also available for heavy duty vehicles). Therefore, the GPS device pulls power from the limo, is discreet to the driver and offers more data related to diagnostics than the portable vehicle tracking solutions.
Regardless of the choice a limo business makes when selecting a real-time GPS tracking device the benefits in terms of management, security and safety are overwhelming. GPS tracking can assist any limo business in a number of different avenues whether it be mileage accounting, driver safety, automotive security or simply more detailed management.Last Updated on Sunday, 13 July 2014 02:06
