Parents worried about their children’s whereabouts while being driven to and from school are increasingly turning to high-tech devices to keep track of them.
Umm Khalid was so concerned about the safety of her seven-year-old that she had the device 
installed in the car without the knowledge of the driver, according to a report in a local publication recently.
She can now monitor the location of the vehicle and the distance traveled in real time as the driver travels to her child’s school and back.
Mamdouh Izzat, who sells these devices, said they are usually used to track vehicles that are stolen and by companies wanting to monitor their employees, but many parents have now been snapping them up.
Most of his customers are women who send their children to school with private drivers. The device has a chip valid for one year that can be renewed. It is password-protected and can be accessed from a mobile phone, laptop or a desktop computer from anywhere in the world.
It uses global positioning system (GPS) technology and has an internal memory. If GPS is not available, the device sends information through SMS. 
Izzat said these devices have been designed according to international specifications and uses modern tracking systems. It can withstand high temperatures and lighting.
Some advanced GPS tracking devices capture location information apart from other vehicle information at regular intervals to a central server. The other information can include fuel amount, engine temperature, altitude, door open/close, tire pressure, and odometer readings, according to Wikipedia.
Vehicle tracking systems are commonly used by fleet operators for management such as tracking routing, dispatching, on-board information and security. Along with commercial fleet operators, urban transit agencies use the technology for a number of purposes, including monitoring schedule adherence of buses.
