How Accurate are GPS Systems Used on Construction  Equipment?

October 14, 2020 Published by

How do GPS Systems Work? GPS is short for Global Positioning System. It is a system used to figure out the exact location of an object on the globe. In ancient times, people relied on constellations in the night sky for navigation purposes. Similarly, GPS relies on a network of satellites to pinpoint the coordinates of the location. GPS consists of satellites, ground stations, and receivers. The ground stations use radar technology to confirm the location provided by the satellites. This can be vital in the construction industry, when equipment needs to be quickly moved within a state, or even nationwide....

What Does a GPS Tracker Use to Track Vehicles

November 27, 2019 Published by

What is a GPS (Global Positioning System)? Straight out of science fiction, we have the amazing benefits of global location monitoring. GPS is a series of satellites placed in incredibly high orbits above Earth, operated by the USAF (United States Air Force) that are used to locate anyone with an appropriate receiver accurately. These specialized satellites carry very stable atomic clocks that are synchronized with each other and ground clocks by sending continuous radio signals about the current time and date of their position. Since we live in three dimensions (3D), accurately identifying a position requires triangulating the relative positions... View Article
