The article reports that a global positioning system (GPS) is installed in most fleet tracking systems. A fleet tracking system is comprised of a GPS receiver installed in vehicles and software operating on personal computers to organize and display gathered information. The article describes the installation of these systems as fairly simple with the help of an experienced GPS tracking vendor.
