Global positioning systems (GPS) are used in nearly every aspect of life in today’s world. These systems have revolutionized today’s technology by becoming more interactive and useful in multiple industries. From navigating unfamiliar cities to locating missing people, GPS devices have evolved since being introduced to the world. Advances in GPS devices has made them more accurate and useful.
Real-Time Data Delivery
GPS sensors can be placed on objects to track them. This is useful for fleet vehicle management, scientific exploration/experimentation and even finding missing persons. The horse racing industry uses GPS sensors to deliver real-time data during races. The data can be streamed to viewers to deliver play-by-play commentary and track the race without having to be in attendance.
Real-time data helps multiple organizations including the entertainment sector, law enforcement, government entities and consumers. In terms of governmental usage, attaching sensors to planes, missiles, and even military personnel can help plan proper means for situation resolution and proper attack positioning in wartime situations.
