Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)
It is a system which tracks and reports the vehicle location accurately.
Main objective of the system is supervision, controlling and communication within the vehicle.
Thus it helps in finding the vehicle’s situation and prevents it from illegal matters, or any other problems
Working of the system
It is used where there is a large fleet to operate and maintain .
Informs supervisor about the exact location of the vehicle, whether it is moving on a correct path and not deviating from the route.
Informs about any accidents in between.
Informs about the drivers behavior like illegal parking, getting into illegal matters, taking long breaks and participating under malpractices, violating traffic rules, over speeding the vehicle.
It is not restricted to the location of the vehicle but also informs about the variation in temperature in the vehicle which is very important for the stuffs carried & also informs about the leakage from the vehicle.
Summing up the AVL system is very fruitful for managing the large fleet.
Its very useful in business like shipping, in banks, in oil companies etc. to manage their fleet, behavior of their drivers, position of their vehicles.
Its mainly a spying technology for vehicles.
Its not restricted up to finding the position of the vehicle but also informs about the temperature maintenance and leakage in the vehicle carrying oil.
The installation of the system is very expensive.
But its very useful at longer stage for businesses and also helps in increasing profit.
