  • How to use the "electronic fence" function of the car GPS tracker?



    Nowadays, GPS trackers are generally used in teams that require vehicle management, such as car loan companies, construction machinery manufacturers and dealers, school buses that pick up and drop off students, and buses. These types of fleets have high requirements for the location information of the vehicle machinery. The GPS tracker is based on its powerful location information collection and processing functions to make fleet management more intelligent. Here is the GPS tracker's electronic fence function to tell everyone in detail.

     

    The electronic fence is to set a range through the GPS positioning background to form a fenced warning area. In Sward's immediate positioning platform, this area can be set in a regular shape, such as a circle or a rectangle; it can also be set to other irregular shapes. When the target vehicle enters the area or leaves the area, the background will receive an alarm message. The manager can immediately lock the vehicle and proceed to the next step.

    The purpose of this feature is to prevent vehicle violations. For example, loan vehicles, some owners or staff will have the behavior of reselling vehicles or goods on the vehicle. The places where these transactions are made are usually fixed or within a certain range. The team management personnel can set a place for these possible trading places. If an alarm message occurs in the background, it means that the vehicle has entered the area in violation of the rules, which means that the driver of the vehicle may privately resell the vehicle or the goods. And the positioning background can also record when the vehicle enters the area and how long it stays in the area.

     


    Of course, this feature is not just for theft. In logistics vehicle management, an electronic fence can be used to verify the work of the vehicle. General logistics vehicles will not be transported at only two locations from the start and endpoints, and several transfer stations will be involved in the middle. Logistics fleet managers can use the electronic fence to determine when a vehicle arrives at the transit station and how long it takes to stay at the transit station. It can also be used as estimated arrival time.

    All of the above are applications on the vehicle. The GPS tracker's electronic fence function can also be used for supervision in other industries, such as animal husbandry.
