Construction Equipment GPS Tracking Technology

How Does GPS Tracking for Fleet Work?

Global Positioning System (GPS) is a mature technology that works in nearly any outdoor location with a network connection. GPS tracking devices use GPS technology to report the location (position) of an object at regular intervals.

GPS trackers receive ping messages from several Earth-orbiting satellites maintained by the US Air Force. A GPS tracking device uses these ping messages to calculate its precise location, often within feet and uses cellular data to transmit the information.

What is GPS Tracking for Fleet and Construction Equipment?

The ability to track a precise location from nearly anywhere outside with a GPS tracker is an optimal use case for construction equipment GPS tracking, including medium to large equipment and vehicles on the move.

There are typically four types of GPS equipment tracking devices used in construction.

No power supply is required.

Powered by the equipment it is plugged into.

Powered by the sun. Best used on outdoor equipment.

Powered by the vehicle that it is plugged into.

How is GPS Tracking Used in Construction Equipment Tracking?

GPS trackers are ideal for tracking fleet vehicles and heavy equipment to monitor precise location, and other telematics information like engine hours/miles and other diagnostic data in real-time.

Monitor on-road vehicles for location, performance and maintenance needs with GPS fleet trackers.

Track the precise location of large, engine-operated equipment and machines.
