Working of GPS tracking system

GPS tracking system is a worldwide radio navigation system it was formed from the conclusion of 24 satellites. A GPS tracking system uses GNSS network (Global Navigation Satellite system) this network uses microwave signals that are transmitted to GPS device and processed by reviver to find out the current location.

The operation of the system is based on simple principle trilateration. It has further two classifications 2-D trilateration and 3-D trilateration

A GPS tracking solution works in various ways

  • Ø GPS devices are used to record the positions of the vehicles while they are making their journeys. Some systems will store the data in the GPS tracking system itself these are known as passive tracking
  • Ø Some system will send the data in the series of interrelated steps within the GPS system called Active tracking

All the mobile phones emit certain radiations called radio waves signals even when they are not being used. So before the invention of GPS different telecommunication companies locate the position from the towers, but after the invention of this innovation   the positioning have become more accurate


  • With the help of GPS tracker we can get the information of our vehicle
  • We can get the speed, velocity, direction of our vehicle
  • With the help of GPS tracker we can monitor the route of delivery truck
  • GPS Tracking System is useful parents also they can have check and balance on their children’s
