Future Indiana restraining orders may come with GPS trackers. A new proposal may give judges the authority to issue GPS ankle bracelets in cases where the alleged abuser is forbidden from contacting the party requesting the order.

GPS Tracking for School Buses
With kids everywhere returning to school, we’re finding many stories of school districts using GPS tracking devices to track every bus in their fleets. In Texas, Leander School District recently installed GPS tracking for each of its 161 bus routes. The GPS devices allow administrators to track the location of any bus at any time. The district hopes to add a mobile app for parents in the future.
GPS Tracking Device Deters Assailant
GPS trackers for personal protection offer an added layer of security for anyone, but in the case of those with disabilities or at risk for exploitation they can be invaluable. One mother recently reported that her daughter that a personal GPS tracking device helped stop a sexual assault against her disabled daughter. Through GPS tracking software and voice capabilities, the mother was able to hear the situation, and then drive directly to her daughter. TrackingTheWorld highly recommends GPS trackers for elderly individuals with dementia, Alzheimer’s patients, and other at risk populations.
GPS Devices in Fake Elephant Tusks
GPS trackers placed in fake elephant tusks are helping map routes used to smuggle ivory out of the Congo, which eventually makes its way to China after being traded in the Darfur region. It is estimated that 30,000 African elephants are killed by poachers every year.
No matter where you live, garbage removal is an essential service. Not only is waste management important for ascetic purposes, but it is a health issue as well. Uncollected trash attracts rodents, promotes illness and causes a host of other problems. If you run a waste management company, you are providing a vital public service to the people and businesses in your area.
Doing such an important job as efficiently as possible is essential. If the garbage goes uncollected for even a day, problems will quickly arise. That is why so many waste management companies are incorporating GPS fleet tracking software into all their new trucks and retrofitting their old equipment to work with the new technology.
Once the GPS tracking software is in place, company managers can see exactly where each truck is on its route. They can reroute trucks as needed and choose the most efficient routes for their drivers. They can also make sure their drivers are working at maximum efficiency and that they are sticking to their assigned schedules and routes.
GPS technology can help waste management companies in another important way. Construction delays and issues with roadway maintenance may seem like small problems, but having a garbage truck stuck in traffic for 5 minutes could throw off the entire route for the rest of the day. With the GPS fleet tracking software in place, company owners can use mapping technology to see problem spots and route around them.
Safety is another important benefit of GPS fleet tracking software. Garbage trucks are large and unwieldy, and that makes hiring safe drivers and training them properly even more important. Fleet tracking technology allows company supervisors to make sure drivers are operating their vehicles safely and responsibly.
Running a waste management company is not easy, but it is important. Whether you run a small string of trucks or a statewide fleet, incorporating GPS fleet tracking software into your business can provide a host of benefits for you and your customers.
Every business has to maximize its profits and minimize its expenses if it wants to survive. There are a number of ways to accomplish this, but one of the most effective ways is to incorporate fleet tracking software. There are numerous benefits to its use. For starters, it helps business owners save money. It also has the potential to make operations more efficient. Last but not least, it allows business professionals to spot problems early, before they can grow into bigger issues.
When it comes to saving money, fleet tracking software is one of the most effective tools that managers can use. It helps them better understand the routes that drivers are taking and it also helps them develop more efficient business practices that can help them save a great deal of money over time. Essentially, the software can make the entire operation flow more smoothly, minimizing the miles that are driven. This in turn helps the company save money on fuel costs and vehicle maintenance. It also helps supervisors spot problems by giving them a heads-up when drivers are taking routes that are inefficient or when they are not doing the jobs they are being paid to do. Things can be dealt with before these issues cost the company too much money.
With the use of fleet tracking software, business owners can take a company’s finances to the next level. The software is perhaps the ultimate tool to help companies make more money by reducing their everyday operating costs. When all of these benefits are considered more in-depth, there is every reason to start using the software right away. The benefits that are offered are measured in the profits that business owners can reap.
A bill proposing a pilot GPS tracking program for state vehicles is moving through the Michigan state legislature. If approved, the bill would approve a pilot program for approximately a hundred of the state’s vehicles. If the pilot program were proven to be successful, GPS tracking could then be installed on all state vehicles at an approximate annual cost ranging from $500K to over $1M. The bill was drafted in part due to suspected misuse of state time, vehicles, and resources, including one case where state time and vehicle privileges were abuse on 84 occasions. If enacted, officials expect the vehicle tracking devices and GPS tracking software to save fuel, eliminate mileage reporting, and assist in monitoring employees.

As car accidents remain the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, TrackingTheWorld is reminding parents of the benefits of GPS tracking devices to monitor teenage driving habits for both safety and peace of mind during prom and graduation season.
“Real time vehicle trackers allow parents to know where their teen’s vehicle is at all times, how fast it is moving, and even alert them to harsh driving such as sudden braking,” said Gilbert Walz, CEO of TrackingTheWorld, a firm exclusively specializing in tracking devices and GPS tracking software for more than 11-years.
For monitoring teenage drivers, TrackingTheWorld recommends its EnduroPro tracker, a compact real time tracking device which is easy to install and operate. The device can simply be placed in the vehicle’s glove compartment or under a seat, and can be magnetically mounted using TrackingTheWorld’s affordable MiniMag case.
With GPS tracking software services and an Internet connection, the EnduroPro also allows parents to create geo-fences, a set of pre-determined boundaries, for their teen. If the vehicle moves outside of the boundary, the tracker will immediately transmit an alert notifying the parents via programmed cell phone numbers. As added safety feature, the EnduroPro also comes equipped with a panic button which, when pressed, will automatically alert parents or other family members through a rapid series of location alerts, indicating that the teen needs emergency assistance.
Founded in 2003, TrackingTheWorld is based in Burlingame, California, and offers a broad selection of GPS tracking devices and accessories and tracking services.

London’s Daily Mail recently reported the development of a crowd-sourced GPS tracking software application which utilizes the data from thousands of participating cell phones to potentially predict earthquake. The GPS software works by tracking changes in ground movement across a broad area. Researchers say that the application requires only a small percentage of a metropolitan area’s citizens in order to be effective, and would prove effective in providing an an advance warning system for earthquakes.
San Francisco is considering the installation of GPS tracking devices for city government vehicles with the goals of tracking the use of the vehicles, more efficiently responding to emergency situations, and save fuel. The city’s fleet consists of around 8,000 vehicles, with around 2,300 of them already equipped with GPS tracking. The cost for equipping the remaining vehicles would be approximately $1.8 million per year. Officials also cite the benefits of GPS trackers in the city’s emergency vehicles in assisting dispatchers with efficiently deploying emergency services when needed.
