GPS Tracking On a Rise
GPS in the Present World
In recent times, GPS Tracking has emerged as one of the foremost technologies powering humanity’s evolution. Globally, it has become a norm for many organizations and industries. GPS is being extensively used for mapping locations, buildings and landmarks, and tracking people, kids, pets, luggage, parcels, vehicles, trains, aircraft, ships, and lots more stuff. GPS tracking technology has made inroads in India as well, but its overall usage in the country has been limited, especially when compared to developed countries. However, there’s immense scope for GPS tracking in India, since the technology is highly accurate and proven to reduce costs and improve efficiency. GPS usage has been consistently increasing in India, as everyone, including people, government agencies, organizations and businesses, has started to realize the benefits of GPS technology.
GPS Scope in India
GPS tracking in India is being widely used by cab operators such as Ola and Uber. Other local cab operators, transport companies, fleet operators, courier companies, and food delivery firms are also using GPS technology to improve customer service and boost efficiency. The possibilities for GPS tracking in India are virtually limitless, as it has been envisioned that GPS will become standard equipment for all vehicles, just like ABS and airbags. GPS is expected to become a norm for local municipal corporations as well, who will use the technology to track locations, properties, development projects, garbage disposal, tanker water supply, etc. GPS technology will also witness increased usage in the tracking of loved ones such as kids, women, differently abled, and senior citizens.
NAVIC – India’s personal GPS system
GPS tracking in India is expected to get a significant boost when ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) will launch its own GPS system. The Indian GPS system is known as NAVIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation) and it is expected to become operational in the coming years. When NAVIC becomes fully operational, India will join the esteemed list of countries that have their own GPS system. India will be the sixth country, after United States, Japan, Russia, China and European Union, to have its own GPS system. The Indian GPS system will make GPS accessible to more people and organizations and significantly increase GPS usage in the country.
