Geofencing is the use of a Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network and/or local radio frequency identifiers (such as Wi-Fi nodes or Bluetooth beacons) to create virtual boundaries around a location. Geofence or geofencing is then paired with a hardware/software application that responds to boundaries in certain ways as defined by program parameters.
The Global Positioning System or commonly known as GPS is a navigation system created and controlled by the United States Department of Defense. In simple terms, GPS can also be defined as a network of satellites that continuously transmits data to identify locations on earth, accurately by measuring the distance from the satellite.
In this modern era, you must have a GPS in your vehicle. Besides being able to minimize the loss of direction while driving, GPS can also reduce the stress of not being able to come to the intended location on time. Here are the benefits or benefits that you can feel when using this navigation system:
1 No need to use maps
When going for recreation or going to an unknown place, you need a map to help you find that location. However, this method will take more time and be less effective. With GPS, the intended location is certainly well programmed. So that you will get to that location faster.
2 Save Time and Fuel
With a good GPS, you will get information about the intended location quickly. Complete information and the easy route given will speed you up to your destination. This convenience, of course, not only saves your time on the trip but also the vehicle fuel used.
3 Driving at night is safer
When driving at night, especially when the weather is bad, the GPS will tell you which road or direction to choose before you even see the direction. The GPS will also make a preview of what roads you should choose even in dark conditions.
With the help of GPS, vehicle owners can find out the current location of their vehicle. When something untoward happens, you can easily track the position of the object that is GPS attached.
5 Knowing the Weather
With GPS you will not only know a shorter route, but also know the weather, temperature, humidity, and air pressure that occurs at that location. Of course, this will make it easier for you to prepare yourself when you go to that location.
6 Security Features
Special facilities such as the “help” button will help you to find the closest and fastest access to police stations, hospitals, and others.
With the benefits that have been described above, of course, there is nothing wrong with starting to activate your GPS wherever and whenever so that your driving activities become smoother. Don’t forget to pay attention to the condition of the vehicle before deciding to drive. Optimal vehicle conditions, especially on tires, can make traveling safer and more comfortable. So, safety is maintained until the destination.
