Understanding the Importance of APIs with Advanced Applications

API stands for Application Program Interface. If you are having difficulty understanding the importance of API for application development, it is paramount that you study APIs and see how they influence your information and data transmission processes. In the most basic sense, an API is a set of commands that allow two software systems to communicate with one another. If the commands are not followed, valuable data may be exposed.

Ensuring Child Security with GPS Tracking Solutions

The world today is changed. Unfortunately, parents are justified in feeling vulnerable to malicious or accidental threats to the welfare of their children. Young children and even older children who may have intellectual or emotional challenges such as autism, can fall prey to both human menaces and random incidents. Whether a child is at risk of being a victim or of getting lost, GPS tracking is the optimal solution. Children who venture outside before their parents are awake on the weekend can be located almost instantly with GPS tracking solutions for child protection. The chances of child recovery after abduction are massively improved with this groundbreaking use of technology.

Finally, there is a positive application to a technology that has been time-tested and proven to be accurate. GPS tracking solutions has been used by the government for military purposes for years. Now, thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), parents can utilize this powerful technology to ensure child safety.

Position Logic specializing in precision Location-based Services, has developed a powerful GPS Location tracking platform that allows certain objects to be connected with their GPS software. Known colloquially as the Internet of Things, these items communicate wirelessly with the Internet via household Wi-Fi. One common example of an IoT application is the teddy bear with a camera located in the eye. Parents can place this teddy bear inconspicuously in a child's bedroom. The camera records sound and audio and uploads it to a site where parents can log in and monitor the care the babysitter is giving their child while they are away from home.

These Internet connected personal tracking devices can be as inconspicuous as a small device hidden inside a child’s backpack, a wearable device worn as a watch or wristband, or even a device that doubles as a child’s cell phone. With this latest application of a potent location technology, parents know longer have to worry about where their child is at any time.

In addition, children can be taught to locate and hit a special panic button on a device. This is an effective way to instill a feeling of safety for the child and the parent, since a direct link is established between the panic button and the parent’s contact number of choice. Almost simultaneously, the instant a child in jeopardy pushes the panic button, the parent is notified.

With Position Logic’s precision Location-based Services tracking platform, there are a multitude of options available to suit every need. Contact us today to find out more about how you can harness the power of GPS Tracking Solutions to ensure your child’s safety at every step.

Ensuring Cargo and Vehicle Security with GPS Tracking Solutions

In the transportation industry, GPS tracking solutions play a key role in optimizing the increasing billable miles, reducing fuel usage and cutting operational costs. However, the security-related features are perhaps the most important attributes.

The necessity and volatility of the global supply chain requires visibility into vehicle and cargo locations, and GPS tracking solutions enable businesses to locate containers in real-time. In fact, organizations must often know not only the exact location and current status of cargo (in a warehouse, on a truck or crossing the ocean), but they must also ensure that the shipment has not been tampered with and that environmental controls, if necessary, remain intact.

In order to ensure ubiquitous connectivity on land and across oceans, GPS solutions must utilize wireless services able to cross national boundaries in a seamless, cost-conscious manner. Companies cannot afford to take on unmitigated roaming and tariff charges merely to track their goods in the supply chain. The cost-effective and simple answer is to provide a single platform that aggregates multiple “in-country” mobile networks and technologies through one management interface for billing, support, logistics and relationship management. This is the only way to ensure cargo and vehicle security with predictable costs, regardless of the country where data is consumed.

GPS tracking solutions provide security through:

  • Real Time and Historical Tracking: Follow cargo on-the-move and also view a complete history of all tracking sessions recorded over time.
  • Alerts and Notification Delivery: On-vehicle panic buttons, instant alerts on the trucking fleet management software platform help drivers inform officials in the event of an emergency.
  • Geofencing: Spatial fences allow businesses to confine objects to a prescribed geographic region. Alerts can be sent upon entering and/or leaving the fenced zone as well as in the event of delayed vehicle or asset.

Position Logic’s precision LBS solution for transportation meets regulatory requirements and provides critical security for mobile assets. Contact us for more information on how we can help reduce liability and risk, and protect your vehicles and valuable cargo.
