Fleet tracking is a specialized form of GPS asset tracking that utilizes other technologies as well. Often lumped together under the term mobile resource management (MRM), this technology suite can utilize GPS, RFID, and Wi-Fi. Telematics is another term used to describe this field, which can help reduce fuel, labor and insurance costs, and even the number of vehicles required to meet management’s needs.
A study by C.J. Driscoll and Associates indicates that 1.9 million GPS/wireless devices are used for this purpose, and that the market will grow to 5.9 million by 2009. Automatic vehicle location (AVL) is one of the most commonly used components of MRM.
