Even at the dawn of motorization, when the first crews for the carriage of passengers and taxi, before designers raised the question of whether it is possible to make a system for tracking the car. After all, machines are becoming more and more developed system of passenger and freight traffic, and the knowledge of the whereabouts of a particular vehicle could significantly simplify the conduct of affairs. However, the desire and the real implementation of such projects delayed for quite a long time since technical problems with its application. Perhaps, the first tracking system for car appeared only in the post-war period, and it worked by the radio station. A radio signal coming from the vehicle was recorded and, from a sound wave speed, transpired object distance.
Alas, the Vehicle Tracking System was not implemented, because this principle is not allowed to know where it is currently moving object (actually, a car), and allowed only determine the distance to it. “Space” era of car tracking systems provides a very broad prospect. In particular, thanks to the signals from the satellites has become a reality to provide automatic warning systems in the event of road accidents.
Many automakers have become an integrated global positioning system directly into the produced cars. In particular, such a vehicle tracking for the car, in addition to its direct functions, can be using data from impact sensors and trigger of the airbags, automatically send a distress signal to the nearest centre of traffic control, specifying the exact coordinates of the scene.
Smarter than ever- Modern car systems
Also, the modern car tracking systems are so “smart” that they allow the assessment of practically all the actions carried out by the car. In particular, they formed the basis of so-called satellite alarm that automatically sends data to a stolen car, passing the security agencies and coordinates all routes from a stolen vehicle. Of course, installation of car alarms in this class requires the availability of qualified personnel. Modern systems for vehicle tracking system while quite expensive, but they are the best protection against theft system.
This kind of systems is equipped with autonomous power supply systems, which allows them to operate independently of the power-supply system. Also, the compact size of these blocks make it possible to install them is completely transparent, which does not allow an attacker to discover the place of their installation.
Car Tracking Systems are used extensively in the field of transportation, particularly true for their use on heavy vehicles and long-distance transnational follow. Thanks to the global reach of satellite positioning systems, vehicle location information independent of location and can be obtained from abroad at the lowest cost.
Thus, the modern world is on the verge of another technological revolution, which will form the basis of a tracking system for the car. Of course, such progress has its drawbacks. In particular, there is a small risk of leakage of confidential data on the movement of persons or goods and their falling into the hands of interested third parties. It is for this reason, active work on ensuring data security are carried out along with the development of tracking systems for the car. The degree of its development largely depends on the future distribution of such systems.
