Global Positioning System (GPS) is helping people in finding places; tracking
down path; measuring distances between places; in different fields like
Military, Airline, Transportation, etc…. The GPS receivers can pinpoint the
location accurately than any other device. Today more and more applications are
being designed using the GPS system like for e.g. Vehicle Tracking system.
The GPS Reader is one such application, being developed to receive GPS Data
(Latitude, Longitude, Speed and Time) from the reader and save the details in
log files (CSV formatted). The application is able to calculate the Distance
Factor and Mileage from it using Correlation Factor. The application also
records the number of idle timings.
The application also generates report based on the data stored in the log
files. The GPS Data received from the device is in NEMA format specification.
