Our US client wanted us to develop web based system for his dealers, customers, vehicles and GPS devices with two requirements. The first requirement was to ensure GPS position data is shown on world map and second requirement was that GNX device (GPS data Transmission device) should be used to transmit data from vehicle to the database server. Our client wanted a solution which can make it easy to keep an eye on the vehicles in transit.
"GPS Tracking System" has a wide range of goals and objectives out of which the prime considerations are listed below:
- Ability to send messages, stop address and other information to the driver
- Window Service should be created to fetch data coming to UDP port of database server and save it to the application database for reference of web application.
- Use Google map to allow users to see the current position of all his vehicles, can view historical data on map, can create and manage geo-fence, create alerts when the ignition is on, high speed, vehicle is idle and similar others situations.
- Ability to transmit data from vehicle to database server and vice versa
- Managing business critical documents and confidential contents effectively and efficiently at a centralized repository to respond to business need and generate revenue.
