| |September 20195VOL 2 · ISSUE 7-2 · SEPTEMBER - 2019Sure the internet bubble engulfed a large number of industries and transformed the very fabric of their operational understanding. However, not all technology solutions were born out of internet. Some are pretty old. Fleet telematics is a form of technology that transmits data from commercial trucks to another party. Examples of fleet telematics currently in use include satellite freight tracking, vehicle tracking and electronic logging devices. The idea of telematics was introduced in the 1960s before personal computers and the Internet. The history of GPS vehicle tracking had another milestone in 1978. The experimental Block-I GPS satellite was launched into space in 1978. Manufactured by Rockwell International, this system was a successful test; and by the end of 1985, 10 more Block-I satellites were launched to further validate the concept.In the early years, GPS technology was not yet operational, due to an insufficient number of satellites orbiting the earth. On Jan. 17, 1994, after years of gradual growth, the final of the first 24 satellites was launched, and the GPS system was considered fully operational. Today, fleet tracking taps into this same technology. Some quick figures: as of now, there are more than 1 billion cars currently in use on earth and about 1,65,000 cars are produced every day. Now, a point to be noted is that this was just about cars. And we certainly know there are a lot more other vehicles around. That is what makes a GPS tracker system a massive need in today's market. We have time and again woken the businesses to the latest unraveled technology solutions that can make their lives easier. In this edition too, we have thrown light on the companies who have leveraged, researched, prototyped and produced some quintessential vehicle/fleet tracking products and solutions. We believe these products and solutions have the potential to change the way manufacturing companies do business and at the same time, affect car owners' sense of security for their vehicles.
