Do you need to track a vehicle you own? Will you be moving the tracker from car to car? Will you be able to access the tracker to change its battery? Do you want to track something other than a car?
A tracking system is an electronic device installed in a vehicle or to enable the client to track the vehicle's location. Vehicle tracking systems use global positioning system (gps) modules for accurate location of the vehicle. Many systems also combine a communications component such as cellular or satellite transmitters to communicate the vehicle’s location to a remote user. Vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps via the internet or specialized software.

Jar Systems distributes and sells its partner products through 110 technology partners and independent operators in more than 10 countries, and its application is localized in 32 languages..
The purpose of a tracking system is to determine the location or direction of a target on a near-continuous basis. An ideal tracking system would maintain contact and constantly update the target's bearing (azimuth), range and elevation. The output of the tracking system can be sent to a fire control system, which stores the information and derives the target's motion and therefore its future position. As we shall see, tracking systems not only provide an automatic target following feature but also determine the target's position with sufficient accuracy for weapons delivery.
Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) is the name given to the wireless, radio wave technology that allows for a small RFID chip to be embedded in any physical object and uniquely identified by an RFID reader. With an unlimited amount of possibilities for connected devices we are now seeing consumer packaged goods, animals, waste management systems and even humans tagged with RFID chips. Thus generating a wealth of valuable data which can be applied to a variety of systems to enhance our future lives.
First patented in 1983, RFID has seen a mass market, consumer facing surge throughout 2011 with the release of several high profile, RFID enabled mobile devices, most notably from Google and Nokia. With the cost of production falling and RFID technology now available to the public, 2012 should be fuelled with exciting projects emerging from the maker, hacking and tinkering revolutions. To whet the appetite and demonstrate how much this technology can achieve, here are 10 examples of how RFID is currently being championed and how it will impact on our future.
- Supply Chain logistics & distribution.
- Security and access control.
- Parking bay and terminal management.
- Tool Collection.
- Library management system
