Satellites: Each satellite broadcasts a signal that contains information about its location and the current time.
GPS tracking device: This is typically installed in a vehicle or object, receives signals from at least four of these satellites. By comparing the signals, the device can determine its precise location.
Data transmission: The GPS tracking device then transmits its location data, along with other information, to a server or cloud-based platform via a cellular or satellite network.
Data processing: The server or platform receives the location data from the GPS tracking device and processes it into a usable format, such as a real-time location dashboard.
User access: The user can then access this information via a web-based dashboard or a mobile app, which allows them to monitor the location of the vehicle or object in real-time, set up alerts for specific events, such as geofencing, and generate reports based on historical data.
