In the last few years, a lot of technology has been developed, one of which is GPS technology. GPS Is a continuation of (Global Positioning System), which needs to be known by the general public is this GPS technology has many uses in various aspects of life. GPS is one of the most globally popular technologies in the world today and one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. GPS, which is short for Global Positioning System, is a satellite-based radio navigation and positioning system that can be used by many people at once in all weather conditions and is designed to provide precise three-dimensional position and speed, as well as time information, accurately continuous throughout the world. GPS technology began to be developed around the 70s by the United States military through the US Department of Defense which is used for military purposes. Other than that, it is also being used in the business sector due to its convenient geo fencing features for location-based marketing operations.
Along with the development of this system, GPS has been widely used in various fields outside of military interests and developed not only in the United States but throughout the world. To find out the position of the GPS, a minimum of 3 satellites are required. GPS position measurement is based on a mathematical measurement system called trilateration. Namely the measurement of a point with the help of 3 reference points.
Because GPS can provide realtime position and time information, so the benefits of GPS are widely used both in aspects of everyday life such as a monitor system of car and motorcycle ownership, as a tool for tracking tenants or car rentals, heavy equipment and even bicycle rental motorcycle. In addition to using it in aspects of daily life, it is also used in the development of science, in this case, it is used in research.
In addition, GPS is also used for war purposes, such as guiding the direction of bombs, or knowing where troops are. In this way, we can find out friends and foes to avoid wrong targets or determine the movement of troops.
