Knowing the real-time location of family members, children, spouses, employees can bring many benefits. For example, if you're a parent concerned about your child's safety, you can use real-time location tracking to make sure your child is in a safe area and keep track of where your child is going. Likewise, if you're someone concerned about the whereabouts of a family member or spouse, real-time location tracking can help you determine if they're safe, or if they're where they're supposed to be. For employers, real-time location tracking can ensure employees are working within designated areas during business hours and can monitor their workflow.

What is mobile positioning?


Today's smartphones have built-in wireless networks and GPS global positioning systems. The satellite navigation system composed of more than 24 satellites operates 24 hours a day. The precise position is calculated by the transmitted signal polar orbit parameters, and then the built-in map Once the tool knows the location, you can locate the location of the mobile phone and find someone easily.

 

How Mobile Location Works

 

1|Satellite positioning


Satellite positioning is currently the most accurate positioning technology, common ones include Europe's Galileo, China's Beidou system and the world's largest US GPS. The GPS positioning module of the mobile phone transmits the current position to the positioning background, and receives satellite signals to calculate the current position to obtain precise positioning.


2|Mobile phone signal base station


Because the high mobile communication penetration rate can be calculated by the carrier base station through the base station to receive the longitude and latitude of the mobile phone SIM card, and then connect the electronic map API to display the location on the map for positioning. Because Taiwan's mobile communication penetration rate is as high as 126.5 %, which can roughly locate the user's current location and moving speed.


3|Wi-Fi Hotspot


The location is obtained based on the corresponding address of the public Wi-Fi hotspots that you can query for mobile phone location. Because it is based on a certain range, the location and moving speed of the location are approximate rather than the most accurate.


How to enable mobile positioning?

The premise of location tracking is to turn on the relevant GPS service. The following are the steps to turn on location for iPhone and Android phones.

 

1.The setting path of iPhone positioning

"Settings" > "Privacy" > "Location Services" > "System Services" > "Significant Locations" > Enable "Significant Locations"

 

2.The setting path of Android positioning
