Speaking of GPS tracking system, it pops into our mind in many different brands, shapes and sizes. But from the perspective of function, there are mainly two types: passive and real-time tracking.

The GPS satellite tracking system MRVL from CarDrive offers both solutions for fleets to track their trucks. Before choosing the right solution for your fleets, you should get to know the different between the two.

The satellite tracking technology uses a satellite GPS signal to track the location of the vehicles and assets in your fleet. It gives the location of all mobile assets. The passive solution offers tracking that is reported at specific times of the day or based on specific criteria set into the system. This system is considered passive, because it does not report in real time.

While sometimes, you will have assets that need to be tracked at all times.The other real-time tracking provides instant updates, no matter where the vehicle is located. Simply access the control center on your computer or mobile device, and you will know immediately where your vehicles are.

Before determining which solution is suitable for you, you should analyze the way in which your fleet will use fleet tracking technology. If you regularly send vehicles from one yard to another and back which might be the case with a local delivery route then passive tracking may be the most cost-effective option. For fleets that regularly travel varied routes or that have assets at high risk of theft, real-time tracking provides more security.

No matter you choose passive or real-time vehicle tracking, you need to purchase from a company that provides a high level of service and accuracy. The MRVL from CareDrive will ensure you both of these and it can be connected with its driver fatigue alert system and collision avoidance system for a complete fleet management solution.
