GPS Tracking Extension Workflow

All vehicles that are equipped with AVL modems, will send their location and sensor information to MRF's AVL data server via the cellular network. The AVL server provides the essential interface for all GPS tracking operations. MRF Web works as a portal to provide an advanced, user-friendly map interface for users to view, search and report vehicle location and operations data. There will be two data categories in the system:

  • AVL Server dataset - stores raw data sent from the AVL units.
  • GIS Application dataset - stores derived shapes for various business purposes generated from the raw AVL dataset (such as snow removal layers).
