Rijeka got the first smart bus stops in Croatia The stop provides passengers with an overview of the timetable and maps of the bus stations with the current bus positions. This application enables smart public transport, and for the first time is available on mobile phones in Rijeka, making this solution unique in the world. Sensor set up at smart bus stops measures the temperature and air humidity, providing valuable information on environmental parameters, and in the upcoming phases of the project, additional integration of information on cultural events and promotional offers is expected, as well as solutions for the safety of the passengers themselves. The entire concept of smart bus stop in Rijeka was completely designed by Hrvatski Telekom, and along with the mentioned application, a number of smart solutions of renowned partners has been integrated. With this concept, Hrvatski Telekom and partners set a new standard in modernizing urban infrastructure on the Croatian market.

Typically they are classified as "passive" and "active". Once the vehicle returns to a predetermined point, the device is removed and the data downloaded to a computer for evaluation.

Passive systems include auto download type that transfer data via wireless download. Many modern vehicle tracking devices combine both active and passive tracking abilities: when a cellular network is available and a tracking device is connected it transmits data to a server; when a network is not available the device stores data in internal memory and will transmit stored data to the server later when the network becomes available again.

For detailed vehicle locating and tracking this is still the predominant method; however, many companies are increasingly interested in the emerging cell phone technologies that provide tracking of multiple entities, such as both a salesperson and their vehicle. These systems also offer tracking of calls, texts, web use and generally provide a wider range of options.

User interface : The UI determines how one will be able to access information, view vehicle data, and elicit important details from it. Common uses[ edit ] Vehicle tracking systems are commonly used by fleet operators for fleet management functions such as fleet tracking , routing, dispatching, on-board information and security. Some vehicle tracking systems are bundled with or interface with fleet management software.

The American Public Transportation Association estimated that, at the beginning of , around half of all transit buses in the United States were already using a GPS-based vehicle tracking system to trigger automated stop announcements. Other applications include monitoring driving behavior, such as an employer of an employee, or a parent with a teen driver.

Vehicle tracking systems are also popular in consumer vehicles as a theft prevention , monitoring and retrieval device. Police can simply follow the signal emitted by the tracking system and locate the stolen vehicle. When used as a security system, a Vehicle Tracking System may serve as either an addition to or replacement for a traditional car alarm.

Some vehicle tracking systems make it possible to control the vehicle remotely, including block doors or engine in case of emergency. The existence of vehicle tracking device then can be used to reduce the insurance cost, because the loss-risk of the vehicle drops significantly. Vehicle tracking systems are an integrated part of the "layered approach" to vehicle protection, recommended by the National Insurance Crime Bureau NICB to prevent motor vehicle theft.

This approach recommends four layers of security based on the risk factors pertaining to a specific vehicle. Vehicle Tracking Systems are one such layer and are described by the NICB as "very effective" in helping police recover stolen vehicles.

Some vehicle tracking systems integrate several security systems, for example by sending an automatic alert to a phone or email if an alarm is triggered or the vehicle is moved without authorization, or when it leaves or enters a geofence.

Other scenarios in which this technology is employed include: Stolen vehicle recovery: Both consumer and commercial vehicles can be outfitted with RF or GPS units to allow police to do tracking and recovery.

In the case of LoJack, the police can activate the tracking unit in the vehicle directly and follow tracking signals. Asset tracking: Companies needing to track valuable assets for insurance or other monitoring purposes can now plot the real-time asset location on a map and closely monitor movement and operating status.

Vehicle tracking allows companies to quickly locate a field engineer and dispatch the closest one to meet a new customer request or provide site arrival information. Field sales: Mobile sales professionals can access real-time locations. For example, in unfamiliar areas, they can locate themselves as well as customers and prospects, get driving directions and add nearby last-minute appointments to itineraries.

Benefits include increased productivity, reduced driving time and increased time spent with customers and prospects. Trailer tracking: Haulage and Logistics companies often operate lorries with detachable load carrying units. The part of the vehicle that drives the load is known as the cab and the load carrying unit is known as the trailer. There are different types of trailer used for different applications, e. Users will ensure that the assets do not stop on route or do a U-Turn in order to ensure the security of the assets.

Fuel Monitoring: monitor the fuel through tracking device with help of fuel sensor connected to the device. Distance Calculation: calculate the distance travelled by the fleet. Vehicle tracking systems are widely used worldwide.

Additionally, these systems may also feature short range data communication systems such as WiFi. While most will offer real-time tracking, others record real time data and store it to be read, in a fashion similar to data loggers.

A cellular OBD GPS tracker directly communicates with the cell tower for sending the location and other vehicle performance data to the server over cellular wireless network. In addition, OBD trackers communicate with the different vehicle subsystems for receiving vehicle diagnostic and fuel consumption related data. Fleet management tracking[ edit ] Aside from theft-prevention , the most common use of vehicle tracking is in logistics and transport.

These systems make use of GPS and GSM technology to provide precise and constant location telematics to an individual fleet manager. These systems are typically equipped with features to monitor statistics such as; fuel consumption, average speed, current driver time and location.

There has been a recent increase in demand for this technology as EU regulations place increased restrictions on the hours driver are allowed to work in a given day.

It is currently limited to 9 hours per day. This obligation has led many to attempt to cauterize this potentially onerous obligation, instead turning it into a benefit. Much like other forms of trackers, although due to their nature they are equipped with more thorough diagnostic features. The hospitality industry has caught on to this technology to improve customer service. For example, a luxury hotel in Singapore has installed vehicle tracking systems in their limousines to ensure they can welcome their VIPs when they reach the hotel.

Vehicle tracking systems used in food delivery vans may alert if the temperature of the refrigerated compartment moves outside of the range of safe food storage temperatures. Car rental companies are also using it to monitor their rental fleets.

One of the consequences of being visally impaired is the limitations in mobility. For global navigation, many tools already exist. For instance, in outdoor situations, handheld GPS systems for the blind are now available. These tools are not helpful for local navigation: local path planning and collision avoidance.

Wireless File Transfer Using built in WI-FI, our HD In-Car Video System lets you upload files automatically when your fleet vehicles pull into range of your wireless network, eliminating the need to manually remove a storage device to retrieve your files. Display camera views and adjust settings all from the same interface. With timeline-based event tagging, in-car videos and body camera videos can be tagged simultaneously to save time. Automated Officer Login When officers sign into their mobile data computers, they are automatically logged into their car video system, eliminating the need to remember an extra login or RFID card to carry.
