Now-a –days, most of the things are connected with internet and cell phones being the most. These cell phones have GPS (Global positioning system navigators) technology. The technology is embedded in the phones by the manufacturing company. This is very much helpful in tracking location. Its use will help you in finding routes which you want to take to reach your destination by consulting e- maps. These e-maps are real time satellite images. For your easiness, the technology navigates the shortest distance of your destination from the point where you are currently at. Similarly, if we are traveling by car and that car does have GPS technology then following the instruction of the technology we can easily get to our site without any hesitation.
In today’s scenario, GPS navigators emerged as an integral part of communications and safety. Many organizations—small or big—as per its requirement, are taking huge benefits by using different applications of this technology. And, one of such applications of GPS navigators are widely benefiting taxis.
Taxis especially use the GPS navigators to ensure their safety and for an effective scheduled dispatching system. Basically, GPS navigators keep two way communications between taxi and taxi company which is effective in dispatching, tracing, rescuing and sometimes even managing different taxis at different locations. It is best technological tool to know whereabouts of taxis. By the use of GPS navigator dispatcher can confirm the status of taxi whether it is vacant or busy.
The GPS navigator instructs the taxis regarding short route to follow to reach at the potential customer and also pinpoint the position of the customer. Having the information about taxis location and so that of customer, dispatcher can assign the nearest taxi available in customer’s service. With the efficiency in finding the fastest route, dispatcher can provide ETA of taxis to the passengers. This saves lots of time and money at both ends. GPS provides real time traffic updates reducing delays and increasing productivity.
Having the GPS navigator in the car helps the driver in finding the routes from location A to destination. GPS can show different routes available and thus driver can find the shortest route without any confusion of being lost. This will enhance efficiency of the taxi as the consumption of fuel will lower down which ultimately benefits the environment—least environment pollution.
Security is another prominent feature of GPS navigator. It ensures safety of driver and passenger as well. In case of emergency, the navigator allows driver or passenger to call for help or rescue from dispatcher. The dispatcher is able to monitor the vehicle all the times and due to this the response time of the dispatcher is small avoiding possible danger.
GPS system records data like speeding and driving in real time. These data are forwarded to the dispatcher and though the acquired data drivers are checked and controlled. The system suggests the possible shortest distance which will also reduce the bill of customers bringing smile on their face.
In short, GPS technology brings service provider and customers at the common ground of happiness where both the parties are in win-win position.
