GPS Technology – Enhancing Security

We all are very much aware about different crime prevention techniques and methods particularly when it comes to GPS tracking and navigation devices and how these devices have been helping the police to apprehend and locate the stolen appliances, bikes, cars and many others. The creative utilization of different GPS devices is continuously making people wonder as it keeps on protecting and expanding its users to a great extent.

Lately, it has been in news that a bank robber was being caught for the reason that a quick thinking teller had already placed a GPS device in his bag along with the cash. Now apparently the robbers was only able to look out for the sings of a dye and no tracking device at all. In the same manner, another robbery attempt was being foiled as GPS devices were being utilized as a protective and precautionary measure. Another story was also reports where again the GPS device made it possible for the related authorities to fully take control of a bus by the remote means.

The idea was basically originated by the Department of Homeland Security, and later on it has been fully control a bus by remote means. In the Same way, an attempt that was being made by the terrorists to hijack buses and potentially turning the messenger loaded automobiles into such weapons that are capable of enormous destruction.

To avoid such acts and threats, all the vehicles drivers are required to press the panic button, which is apparently located hidden somewhere near the steering wheel. As soon as the distress signal is being generated, it activates the GPS device installed in the bus and enables the authorities to easily identify the vehicle, its travel direction, speed, and location. In such a scenario, the dispatcher can easily override the vehicle remotely slowly bringing the vehicle to a safe and secure place even preventing it from starting again. Presently, Coach USA and the Gray Line double-decker tourist buses are making use of this particular technology which is extremely useful in improving the safety and security of their passengers.

We should be grateful to different companies such as TomTom, Magellan, Garmin and various others as they have made our lives quite safer and secure via using such technological means and techniques.
