TYPES OF TRACKING Passive devices store GPS location, speed, heading and sometimes a trigger event. The device is removed and the data downloaded to a computer for evaluation. PASSIVE TRACKING ACTIVE TRACKING Active devices also collect the same information. Transmit the data in real-time via cellular or satellite networks to a computer or data center for evaluation

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

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

Trailer Tracking Haulage and Logistics companies often operate lorries with detachable load carrying units called Trailers. There are different types of trailer used for different applications, e.g., flat bed, refrigerated, curtain sider, box container.
