Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)
The EMTRAC Central Monitoring System enables first-response dispatch and department personnel to remotely monitor vehicle progress and activity in real time.
With EMTRAC AVL (automatic vehicle location), equipped vehicles automatically transmit location and activity data to network-connected EMTRAC detectors in wayside cabinets. This data is displayed on central-workstation monitors, showing vehicle movement on a map in real-time. The data is also recorded in detailed logs for later review.
The vehicle and wayside components used for the AVL system are the same as those used for basic EMTRAC EVP/TSP functionality, making it both a simple and cost-effective way to implement an accurate and reliable AVL system.
