HD GPS TrackingOne Second Resolution
Curved based logic (CBL), aka Smart Algorithm, is a patented method for delivering the right information at the right time, providing the highest resolution HD GPS tracking in the fleet management industry for the same price as slower competitive systems. CBL means the GPS device recognizes changes in speed and direction and adjusts the update rate accordingly. This means that the system updates at varying rate, not every 1 or 2 minutes. When a vehicle changes speed by accelerating or decelerating, the update rate increases. When the vehicle is traveling the same speed and direction, like on a highway, the update rate spreads out because less GPS data is needed. If the vehicle slows to pull off the highway the update rate increase to show the details.
HD GPS tracking is provided at the same price as competitor systems updating every 1 to 3 minutes. Why not get the best?
Log rate, Update rate, Refresh rate
When discussing GPS tracking with any fleet management company, you need to understand these 3 elements to get a complete understanding of how their system works. Perhaps the first questions is, “does the sales rep even understand the differences”.
- Log rate – the frequency the GPS devices is sampling and logging GPS coordinates and other telematics data
- Update rate – the frequency the GPS device transmits the GPS data to a communication network, generally a cellular network
- Refresh rate – the frequency the online map refreshes to display new data received on the server, generally 20-60 seconds
Data is spread out when high resolution is not needed. As soon as speed or direction changes by more than 2 mph, the GPS device increases the update rate and more detail starts to appear on the customers map. The update rate can vary from a few seconds to several minutes.
Detail When it Counts
Resolution increases when needed due to changes in speed and direction. This generally means when vehicles are traveling in an urban environment vehicle routes display every turn and stop. This includes coming to a complete stop at lights, stop signs and railroad tracks, harsh braking and jackrabbit starts. This data is independent of the unique accident reconstruction log provided by the GO System.
