    Introduction to VTS 1.1 Introduction

    Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) is the technology used to determine the location

    of a vehicle using different methods like GPS and other radio navigation systems

    operating through satellites and ground based stations. By following triangulation or

    trilateration methods the tracking system enables to calculate easy and accurate location

    of the vehicle. Vehicle information like location details, speed, distance traveled etc. can

    be viewed on a digital mapping with the help of a software via Internet. Even data can be

    stored and d
