Бесплатный GPS-трекинг

Бесплатный GPS-трекинг

Современные технологии и возможности становятся все более доступными для широких масс и повсеместно используемыми, как для частного лица, так и для мелкого и среднего бизнеса.

Так и GPS-трекинг (отслеживание в реальном времени на карте местоположения водителей, курьеров, монтажных бригад, торговых представителей, детей, собак и т.п. а также просмотр статистики по их передвижениям и остановкам), становится сейчас все более востребованным сервисом, как для домашних условий, так и для предприятия.

И, если крупные фирмы (например, транспортные предприятия) подписав договора с коммерческими сервисами, оплачивая своевременно счета за устройства и абонплату, эту проблему для себя решили, то это скорее подходит для крупных корпоративных клиентов.

Что делать нам, простым смертным или небольшой фирме с несколькими водителями, например? Какие есть простые, надежные и недорогие решения?

Если вкратце, у вас есть «устройство» (персональный GPS-трекер или смартфон с GPS-приемником ), которое, с заданным интервалом времени, скажем каждые 30-50 секунд, определяет свои координаты, используя GPS-приемник. и пересылает их на определенный сервер, используя GSM-модуль. обычно мобильный интернет - GPRS/EDGE. Сервер (ПО) принимает, высылаемые «устройством» координаты, обрабатывает их и отображает местоположение «устройства» на карте, через браузер по запросу пользователя. Или позволяет просматривать «треки» перемещения «устройства» за интервал времени наложенные на карту. Как на рисунке.

Соответственно, имея под рукой современный телефон (сейчас большинство смартфонов идут с GPS-приемником и, например, популярной ОС Android), можно попробовать это на практике и бесплатно.

Из бесплатных сервисов, с которыми работал, понравился http://gps-tracker.com.ua (украинский клон http://free-gps.net ). Под смартфоны у них есть «родная» бесплатная утилита Free-gps.net Tracker. можно скачать с Google Play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.freegps.tracker.free&hl=ru. Утилиту нужно установить на телефон, завести учетку на http://gps-tracker.com.ua и настроить новое устройство, подробное описание тут http://forum.gps-tracker.com.ua/viewtopic.php?id=13 .

Гуляя по улице с телефоном можно будет залогиниться на http://gps-tracker.com.ua и просматривать текущее местоположение, перемещение телефона, а также просматривать треки на карте и экспортировать отчеты по трекам в Excel. Справка подробная http://gps-tracker.com.ua/main_help.php. Кстати, GPS-приемник работает только на открытом пространстве, если будете настраивать в помещении, не забудьте выйти на улицу на некоторое время, что устройство определило спутники и начало правильно определять свои координаты.

Чем понравился этот сервис, широкий расширяемый выбор подключаемых устройств http://gps-tracker.com.ua/connection.php. адекватная техподдержка, пять устройств и хранение инфы о треках до полугода – бесплатно.

Также есть российский сервер http://www.gpshome.ru. Там бесплатно до 3-х объектов и информация о треках хранится в бесплатном варианте всего сутки, т.е. за месяц отчет не сделаешь по пробегу. У них своя утилита для Android смартфонов GPS2OpenGTS_Free. скачать можно тут https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wiebej.gps2opengtsfree&hl=ru

И для iPhone и iPad есть утилита SendLocation для iOS. скачать можно тут:

Все расходы в таком случае составят, если пользоваться бесплатными сервисами, они кстати, довольно стабильны в работе, только оплату GPRS-трафика мобильного интернета по тарифам местного оператора, т.е. 5-10 y.e. в месяц с устройства, вернее с сим'ки в него вставленной, если будет постоянно в работе в течении месяца.

Также или вместо, наигравшись с телефонами, можно приобрести персональные GPS-трекеры, сравнимые по стоимостью с бюджетными смартфонами. Их уже можно использовать водителям (пусть лежат в бардачке и питаются от прикуривателя), или детям, чтобы не давать им дорого выглядящий и хрупкий смартфон на улицу. Один из примеров, которые мной использовались, один из клонов Astron GT-102 и Xexun/Coban TK-102. Можно детальней посмотреть тут http://www.gps2010.ru/faq-tk102.htm. В принципе, более простое, чем телефон устройство. Есть GPS-приемник, GSM-модуль (куда вставляем сим’ку), и питается все от батарейки какой-то из моделей старой Nokia. Настраиваются, некоторые sms’ками, некоторые, через usb-шнур. Вот пример русской инструкции по такому трекеру www.autopulse.ru/files/347.pdf. И ветка на форуме http://gps-tracker.com.ua по его подключению к их серверу http://forum.gps-tracker.com.ua/viewtopic.php?id=18.D. В общем, почитав манул и разобравшись в настройках GPRS конкретного оператора, подключить трекер не составит большого труда.

GPS tracking

GPS tracking

A GPS tracking unit is a device that uses the Global Positioning System to determine the precise location of a vehicle, person, or other asset to which it is attached and to record the position of the asset at regular intervals. The recorded location data can be stored within the tracking unit, or it may be transmitted to a central location data base, or internet-connected computer, using a cellular ( GPRS ), radio. or satellite modem embedded in the unit. This allows the asset's location to be displayed against a map backdrop either in real-time or when analysing the track later, using customized software. Such systems are not new; amateur radio operators have been operating their free GPS-based nationwide realtime Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) since 1982 .

Types of GPS trackers.

Usually, a GPS tracker will fall into one of these three categories:

A GPS logger simply logs the position of the device at regular intervals in its internal memory. Modern GPS loggers have either a memory card slot, or internal flash memory and a USB port. Some act as a USB flash drive. This allows download ing of the data for further analysis in a computer.

These kind of devices are most suited for use by sport enthusiasts: They carry it while practising an outdoors sport, e.g. jogging or backpacking. When they return home, they download the data to a computer, to calculate the length and duration of the trip, or to overimpose their paths over a map with the aid of GIS software. GPS devices are also integral tools in geocaching .

In the sport of gliding. competitors are sent to fly over closed circuit tasks of hundreds of kilometres. GPS loggers are used to prove that the competitors completed the task and stayed away from controlled airspace. The data stored over many hours in the loggers is downloaded after the flight is completed and is analysed by computing the start and finish times so determining the fastest competitors.

Most digital cameras save the time a photo was taken. Provided the camera clock was reasonably accurate, this time can be correlated with GPS log data, to provide an accurate location. This can be added to the picture, and is called geotagging .

In some Private Investigation cases, these data loggers are used to keep track of the vehicle or the fleet vehicle. The reason for using this device is so that a PI will not have to follow the target so closely and always has a backup source of data.

This is the kind of devices used by the security industry, which pushes (i.e. "sends") the position of the device, at regular intervals, to a determined server. that can instantly analyze the data.

These devices started to become popular and cheaper at the same time as mobile phone s. The falling prices of the SMS services, and smaller sizes of phone allowed to integrate the technologies at a fair price. A GPS receiver and a mobile phone sit side-by-side in the same box, powered by the same battery. At regular intervals, the phone sends a text message via SMS, containing the data from the GPS receiver.

Some companies provide data "push" technology, enabling sophisticated GPS tracking in business environments, specifically organizations that employ a mobile workforce, such as a commercial fleet.

The applications of these kind of trackers include:

* Fleet control. For example, a delivery or taxi company may put such a tracker in every of its vehicles, thus allowing the staff to know if a vehicle is on time or late, or is doing its assigned route. The same applies for armored trucks transporting valuable goods, as it allows to pinpoint the exact site of a possible robbery .

* Stolen vehicle searching. Owners of expensive cars can put a tracker in it, and "activate" them in case of theft. "Activate" means that a command is issued to the tracker, via SMS or otherwise, and it will start acting as a fleet control device, allowing the user to know where the thieves are.

* Animal control. When put on a wildlife animal (e.g. in a collar), it allows scientists to study its activities and migration patterns. Vaginal implant transmitters are used to mark the location where pregnant females give birth. [ [http://apt.allenpress.com/aptonline/?request=get-abstract&issn=1042-7260&volume=037&issue=03&page=0301 Apt Online - Evaluation Of Vaginal Implant Transmitters In Elk (Cervus Elaphus Nelsoni) ] ] Animal tracking collars may also be put on domestic animals, to locate them in case they get lost.

* Race control. In some sports, such as gliding. participants are required to have a tracker with them. This allows, among other applications, for race officials to know if the participants are cheating, taking unexpected shortcuts or how far apart they are. This use has been featured in the movie " Rat Race ", where some millionaires see the position of the racers in a wall map.

* Espionage/surveillance. When put on a person, or on his personal vehicle, it allows the person monitoring the tracking to know his/her habits. This application is used by private investigator s, and also by some parents to track their children. [ [http://www.gpsearch.org/press/rttv/index.html Russia Today: HIgh-tech trackers to help parents ] ]

* Internet Fun. Some Web 2.0 pioneers have created their own personal web pages that show their position constantly, and in real-time, on a map within their website. These usually use data push from a GPS enabled cell phone.

See also: Automatic Vehicle Location

Contrary to a data pusher, that sends the position of the device at regular intervals ( push technology ), these devices are always-on and can be queried as often as required ( pull technology ). This technology is not in widespread use, but an example of this kind of device is a computer connected to the Internet and running gpsd .

These can often be used in the case where the location of the tracker will only need to be known occasionally e.g. placed in property that may be stolen.

Data Pullers are coming into more common usage in the form of devices containing a GPS receiver and a cell phone which, when sent a special SMS message reply to the message with their location.

Potential abuse of GPS trackers

These devices can also raise concerns about personal privacy. Over time, the information collected could reveal a typical pattern of movements.

In the US, the use of GPS trackers by police requires a search warrant in some circumstances, but use by a private citizen does not, as the Fourth Amendment does not limit the actions of private citizens. See United States vs. Garcia, Seventh Circuit Supreme Court.

Of course, other laws, like the common law invasion of privacy tort as well as state criminal wiretapping statutes (for example, the wiretapping statute of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. which is extremely restrictive) potentially cover the use of GPS tracking devices by private citizens without consent of the individual being so tracked.

Countermeasures against GPS trackers

The consumer electronics market was quick to offer remedies ( radar detector s) to radar gun s; a similar market may exist for devices to counter satellite tracking devices. Radio jamming of the relevant GPS or cell phone frequencies would be an option, as would a device which could detect the RF emissions of the GPS receiver circuitry. However, jamming of GPS signals could create a safety hazard to vehicles or aircraft within line of sight of the jammer, and any deliberate radio interference is likely to be illegal in most Western countries.

Besides this, jamming the transmission frequency of an industrial grade GPS transmitter would only work temporarily because most of them use a "store and forward" procedure to store up points that were not received and transmit them again later. This capability is built-in so tracked vehicles don't lose data when they are out of cellular range temporarily. Jamming the actual GPS frequency, however, would result in the GPS transmitter simply thinking it had lost sight of the satellites.

D.Szady Says:

We just finished a 3500 mile trip to the Northeast,with our very first GPS system. In no time I felt very comfortable with having my TomTom along. Getting around town to restaurants ,shopping, etc. When I made a wrong turn in congested area, he got me right back on track. I would recommend a TomTom for traveling. The price from Amazon was great also.

Mary Lewis Says:

I WAS able to obtain the latest map guarantee service from TomTom Home w/out a hitch. Strange that there seemed to be a split on this as well contradictory advice from Tom Tom saying that the “latest map gurantee’ does not apply to refurbs. Well my unit is a refurb and I jusut got finished with the free update successfully. I’m going with an earlier poster who suggested the possibility that had the previous owner of a refurb unit never registered the unit it would be recognized as a new unit by Tom Tom Home and thus recognized as an eligible new unit by TomTom home;conversely had the unit been registered previously the Tom Tom home site would have recognized the unit as aged and therefore not eligible for the upgrade.It would have been not likely that TomTom bothered to check each of the devices serial numbers to block them from the service;such a measure would likely cost more than it was worth. Instead they just pulled the mention of a free amp upgrade from the boxes of the refurbs and maintained the party line that all refurb units are not eligible for the latest map upgrade when in fact many are..

So the upshot is–at least try to use the latest map guarantee ;chances are probably greater than 50/50 you could do it just going off of the posts replying in this thread.

nathan Says:

I have a company that has a need for this device. I would be purchasing thousands of them. How do I get more information on this product and cost?

detria c. reed Says:

I am a police officer in memphis and I have been looking for a small chip that could be marketed as a home electronics locator if stolen for a reasonable price. I was thinking when the item is plugged in again would be the power source and a small antanna could be atached to the rear or under the item.I would love to be apart of that before it hits walmart. I was also thinking that the chip would not have to be as small as this one and would still sell like hot cakes at a reasonable price because that will make it a must have. HAY if it works it would also reduce burglary by 99 percent and make my job a lot easier LOL! email me back i want to know something soon.

Leopold Says:

I need more info on this product, anyone help?

For some time now I have search for at micro chip GPS, and this product seems to be what i need.

Iam a security guard and got some ideas with this product. Quistion…Is it full operationel? Have you found a solution concerning the antenna, and power supply? Is it possible to activate the gps via mobile phone? How long time will power supply hold 1-3 hours??

Looking forward emailing me back.

Justin Maloney Says:

Hello all. I am the Marketing Manager at Rakon and this website was brought to my attention recently. The post is not new, actually it is a copy of an article that ran in January of 2006 in the New Zealand Herald.

The product it refers to is actually a GPS-RF-Front-End-Module (GRM), and not a complete GPS. This was an error made by the reporter who did not understand the technical nature of the product.

The GRM is a ceramic based module that essentially contains a RF-Down-Converter IC, TCXO, LNA and a few other bits and pieces. It is designed to sit between the analogue part of the GPS circuit (antennae) and the digital part (DSP/processor). IT IS NOT a stand alone GPS that can give you position.

In order to create a GPS you would also need an antennae, processing engine, software, output interface and power supply. The GRM was designed to make it easier for GPS designers to complete their products. Traditionally the RF portion of the design is the most difficult to complete so we are helping make that easy.

If this description makes sense to you and you are still interested then feel free to contact our sales department for more information.

Best regards,

GPS TRACKING | Node.js

This module let you easily create listeners for your GPS tracking devices. You can add your custom implementations to handle more protocols.

New GPS Tracker emulator:

We created a brand new gps emulator so you can start testing your app in a breeze. You can signup to save your testing devices.

v1.0 release DEMO SERVER APP DEMO SERVER WEB APP Step by step
  1. Install Node
  2. Create a folder for your project
  3. Copy the example code above in a .js file like server.js
  4. Install the package in the project folder
  1. Run your server

With this package you are going to create a tcp server that listens on a open port of your server/computer for a specific gps device model. For example, you are going to listen on port 8090 for 'TK103 gps-trackers'.

If you want to listen for different kind of trackers, you have to create another tcp server. You can do this in a different node.js program in the same server, but you have to listen in a different port.

So, you can listen on port 8090 for TK103 devices and listen on 8091 for TK102 devices (or any gps-tracker you want)

Персональный GPS

Персональный GPS/GPRS трекер GlobusGPS GL-TR1

Если вы хотите знать, где находится ваш сотрудник, автотранспорт, что происходит с родными и близкими, то хорошим решением будет трекер GlobusGPS GL-TR1. Легкий и миниатюрный, внешне простой и незамысловатый, он, тем не менее, выполняет много полезных функций.

На лицевой стороне трекера расположены три светодиода: красный (питание/заряд), синий (GPS), зеленый (GSM), и три настраиваемых кнопки SOS, B, C для отправки SMS с координатами или экстренного вызова/звонка.

Принцип работы трекера заключается в приеме GPS сигнала для определения местонахождения объекта и периодической отправки координат через SMS на запрограммированный номер сотового телефона или по GPRS-каналу на сервер мониторинга. GlobusGPS рекомендует использовать отечественный бесплатный сервер мониторинга gps-trace.ru.

Итак, для работы трекера необходима SIM карта:

НАСТРОЙКА ТРЕКЕРА И ЕГО ВОЗМОЖНОСТИ

Перед использованием, трекер сначала нужно запрограммировать. Для этого в комплект входит специальный USB переходник для связи с компьютером, диск с драйверами, программа для настройки - ParaListV1.29.

Если вы хотите наблюдать за своим чадом, пожилыми родителями или сотрудниками фирмы и абсолютно не хотите обременять их использованием трекера, можно запрограммировать устройство так, что пользователю останется только носить или возить его включенным с собой.

Настроить нужно APN, Username, Password для работы GPRS в соответствии с вашим сотовым оператором. Вписать ID устройства, IP и порт сервера мониторинга, установить частоту отправки данных, и запрограммировать номер телефона для SMS и звонков по кнопкам SOS, B, C.

Чтобы продлить время работы трекера, производитель предусмотрел энергосберегающий режим, а также в встроил в трекер датчик движения. В спящем режиме трекер на время отключает GPS-модуль (Если Sleep=1, то отключение будет недолгим, если Sleep=2, то трекер дольше будет находиться в режиме сна). В случае использования датчика движения (Sensor Sleep), трекер будет уходить в спящий режим и отключать GPRS при отсутствии движения. Снова включаться трекер будет от вибрации или от входящего SMS/звонка.

Кроме основных настроек в трекере GlobusGPS GL-TR1 много других незначительных параметров. Их описание можно найти в инструкции.

В поле PW задается пароль на доступ к трекеру (по-умолчанию 000000). Зная его, можно отправлять на трекер SMS для удаленной настройки, или запроса координат. Этот альтернативный способ настройки удобен, если вам нужно изменить 1-2 параметра, а трекер уже находится в дороге.

Вы можете позвонить на трекер, и либо анонимно прослушать, что происходит вокруг, либо просто поговорить с пользователем, используя трекер в качестве сотового телефона. Это определяется параметром Monitor.

Если он задан, то трекер будет автоматически и незаметно для пользователя (водителя) отвечать на вызов с этого номера и передавать звонящему звук с микрофона. Если будет звонить чужой, неизвестный номер, то трекер не ответит на вызов или сбросит звонок на 4-5 гудке.

Если же параметр Monitor оставить пустым, то трекер во время входящего вызова будет звонить, как обычный сотовый телефон, и пользователь трекера сам будет решать, отвечать на звонок или нет.

Если же вы хотите сами пользоваться трекером, чтобы вашим близким было спокойнее за вас, в этом случае вы можете отправить с трекера SMS со своими координатами и скоростью, либо SMS с заранее запрограммированным текстом (например, “SOS” или любым другим) или попросту позвонить на один из трех запрограммированных номеров.

Мониторинг GPS-TRACE

Мониторинг на сайте GPS-Trace доступен в двух вариантах: бесплатном ORANGE и платном B2B.

Сначала рассмотрим общедоступный бесплатный сервис ORANGE. Чтобы им воспользоваться, и наблюдать за перемещениями трекера, нужно зарегистрироваться на сайте http://orange.gps-trace.com и зарегистрировать там своё устройство.

Информация будет поступать на сервер и отображаться на карте в режиме реального времени. Актуальность информации зависит от частоты отправки данных на сервер устройством. С задержкой 1-2 секунды данные отображаются в окне браузера. Сервис “GPS-Trace Orange” умеет рисовать трек за нужный вам отрезок времени, показывает скорость объекта на промежуточных точках, привязывает маршрут к дороге, чтобы уменьшить погрешность отображения устройства и расчета его пробега.

Карту можно выбрать на свой вкус: WebGIS-3, OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, Microsoft Live Maps.

Еще одна полезная функция, доступная в бесплатной версии – уведомления. Если трекер покинет заданную вами географическую зону (произвольный многоугольник, который можно самому нарисовать на карте) или будет превышена скорость выше определенной, или нажата тревожная кнопка, то GPS-TRACE может отправить SMS или Е-мейл сообщение на заданный список адресов.

Платная версия мониторинга B2B отличается от бесплатной, во-первых, возможностью наблюдать одновременно за несколькими объектами, а во-вторых, дополнительными отчетами: по поездкам и стоянкам, по маршрутам, по разнообразным датчикам, по топливу, скорости, качеству связи, событиям, посещению геозон. Также можно получить их графики в наглядном виде.

Директорам фирм, имеющих в своем распоряжении штат водителей, особенно будет полезен отчёт по остановкам. Он покажет, где и сколько времени объект простоял без движения, попал водитель в пробку или нет.

ТТрекер GlobusGPS GL-TR1 позволяет вести полноценный мониторинг и может использоваться:

  • для слежения за корпоративным транспортом,
  • для слежения за личным автомобилем для спокойствия родственников и в качестве дополнительной страховки от угона,
  • для слежения за ребенком, за пожилым родителем, за супругой/супругом.

Устройство активно тестировалось ежедневно по 4 часа в течение недели. За это время GlobusGPS GL-TR1 работал без каких-либо сбоев, согласно заявленным возможностям. Без подзарядки трекер работал примерно 48 часов. Из них 8 часов активно, и 40 часов в режиме сна.

По нашим подсчетам, GlobusGPS GL-TR1 в день тратил около 40 кб трафика. Если не пользоваться слишком часто отправкой SMS и звонками, то затраты на связь почти нулевые.

К минусам можно отнести следующие моменты:

Во время стоянки при плохом качестве приема GPS сигнала местоположение иногда отклонялось от реального на 15-20 метров. Правда проблему удалось решить, включив фильтр ложных координат в настройках на сервере GPS-TRACE. Однако, нигде в документации об этом сказано не было.

Перед использованием, трекер требует настройки. Она не сложная, и процесс хорошо описан в инструкции, но если сравнивать трекер, например, с GPS навигатором, где все интуитивно понятно, тут придется открыть инструкцию и потратить какое-то время на настройку прибора и его регистрацию на сайте.

Подводя итоги, добавлю, что средняя цена трекера GlobusGPS GL-TR1 – 6500 руб, что на 2-3 тысячи дешевле, чем у других производителей аналогичных устройств. Если вы хотите открыть для себя новые возможности GPS мониторинга, GlobusGPS GL-TR1 будет достойным выбором.
