Implementing geolocation in a fleet of vehicles has many advantages. One of them is to improve transportation security, by installing a panic button.
The main benefit of having a panic button via GPS is being able to receive a real-time alert about an emergency in the vehicle.
For example, an indication of a robbery, a vehicle chase, or something as basic as running out of fuel or to run out of battery on the cell phone. This accessory allows you to react at the right moment and protect the driver and the asset.
How does it work?
The panic button, also known as the alert button, is connected to a GPS device. When pressed, it detects the change of behavior in the digital input destined to said button.
Which generates an event that is sent in the form of a frame to a satellite tracking platform. The alert button comes in different shapes and sizes. It is placed in a strategic place and easily accessible for the driver. More not in sight, since it must remain hidden to be effective.

Although it is recommended to install this accessory in cargo transport vehicles, as it is more vulnerable to theft or robbery, the panic button can also be used by people, to protect their families.
