Ever sat and wondered how rally cars are tracked? A vehicle tracking system combines the use of automatic vehicle location in individual vehicles with software that collects these fleet data for a comprehensive picture of vehicle locations. Modern vehicle tracking systems commonly use GPS technology for locating the vehicle, but other types of automatic vehicle location technology can also be used. Vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps via the Internet or specialized software.

The Abdul Sidi Rally Academy will now enjoy the offer by the NAJ Tracking Ltd to train its associates on how to understand and apply tracking system technology under the GPRS coordinates. In a nutshell, tracking system technology, a tracking device is fitted into the vehicle and captures the GPS location information apart from other vehicle information at regular intervals to a central server. The other vehicle information can include fuel amount, engine temperature, altitude, reserve geocoding, door open/close, tire pressure, cut off fuel, turn off ignition, turn on headlight, turn on taillight, battery status,GSM area code/cell code decoded, number of GPS satellites in view, glass open/close, fuel amount, emergency button status, cumulative idling, computed odometer, engine RPM, throttle position,GPRS status and a lot more. Capability of these devices actually decide the final capability of the whole tracking system.

Kassim Hassanali, the Director of NAJ Tracking announced this after giving a brief lecture to the students of the institution, who will be participating in the Wild Charge this weekend.

”I will personally come with my team to help your students understand the GPRS technology for free of charge. I would like to do what you are doing for the young generation so that they can also join the elite of the technology,” said Hassanali.

NAJ Tracking is also the official sponsor of the Wild Charge which is to be held this weekend in Naivasha.

The ASRA Team for the Wild Charge is made up of the following students: Nkirote Gitonga, Fazeelah Mubarak, Phanice Musumba, Anastasia Kariuki, Rosalyia Gathii and Joan Lambard. Personal thanks to Manee Choda for being “brave” in supporting ASRA. It is something beyond explaination.
