The PTV geofencing function enables you to keep track of all your vehicles. The special thing about geofencing is that you can define an area that your vehicles cannot leave without being noticed. With corridor fencing, it is also possible to define a specific route vehicles cannot leave. All you need for geofencing is a GPS transmitter for your objects. Geofencing is therefore especially important for security-related transports. Get to know how the geofencing function works and where it makes sense to use.
Geofencing and corridor fencing are mainly used in security-related contexts. The functions ensure that an object equipped with a GPS transmitter cannot leave a defined area (geofencing) or route (corridor fencing) unnoticed. It is a virtual fence, so to speak. As soon as the geofencing system detects the GPS signal outside the defined area, an automatic action is initiated. This action may be a SMS message, an alarm screen, or even interventions in the vehicle's electronics to prevent it from starting, for example.
Geofencing is especially relevant for any security-relevant needs for your vehicles and objects. Geofencing is already used successfully for:
Geofencing enables effective theft prevention without permanent surveillance of the objects. Involved people, e.g. vehicle drivers, don't feel surveilled. This aspect is particularly relevant with regard to data protection requirements.
