GPS Tracking Systems for Taxi Cab Fleet Operations

Taxi Industry Demand

With the rapid development of society, the pace of urbanization, and the growing demand for transportation, city taxis have become one of the most commonly used public transportation methods due to their convenience, speed, and comfort. As an essential part of the urban transportation system, the number of city taxis has rapidly increased in recent years. However, several issues have emerged: high empty-load rates, scattered dispatching, chaotic business management, low service levels, taxi theft, driver robberies, and insufficient protection of driver safety. The single profit model and low profitability hinder the industry's development.


To adapt to the continuous development of urban transportation and improve public safety, better manage taxi fleet operations, enhance passenger rates, improve service levels, protect driver safety, and diversify taxi profit models, China YUWEI has introduced a GPS-based tracking system for vehicle monitoring, dispatching, and remote information processing in taxis.

Taxi Tracking System Function

- Real-time audio and video monitoring of drivers, passengers, and the front of the vehicle, with data stored on an CAR DVR and wirelessly uploaded to a management platform. This aims to promote safe driving awareness, monitor passenger behavior, and provide effective evidence in accidents.

- Integration and sharing of vehicle information monitoring resources, completing vehicle management, remote dispatching, and security monitoring through an intelligent information system. This includes video cameras, alarms, GPS, and various driving state inputs.

- Local storage and real-time network transmission. Using 4G, WiFi, and other wireless technologies, vehicle site information is actively and remotely reported, enabling managers to understand the taxi status and emergency situations in real-time.

Taxi Tracking System Components

The system consists of a monitoring host connected to cameras (with built-in microphones), emergency alarm buttons, positioning antennas, 4G antennas, intercom devices, card readers, LED advertisement screens, and taximeters. It captures video, audio, alarm, GPS, personnel, and vehicle status information, achieving local data storage, real-time voice intercom, automatic monitoring alarms, and wireless data upload to a command center. The system also assists drivers with alarms, warnings, and voice calls. The LED screen communicates with the advertising platform via RS232, allowing remote ad publication.

Camera Installation

- Cameras capture internal and external video. To ensure vehicle and personnel safety, the camera coverage must reach over 95%, covering all areas inside the vehicle. A typical taxi requires four cameras for comprehensive monitoring:

  - Camera 1: Mounted on the upper part of the windshield, fixed with 3M adhesive, captures external scenes and driver activities.

  - Camera 2: Positioned on the interior roof, facing rearward, captures passenger activities in the back seat.

  - Camera 3: Located in the trunk, facing rearward, records luggage handling.


Monitoring Host Installation

- Installed in locations avoiding tampering and impact, typically on the center console or wall-mounted for easy wiring, installation, and maintenance. The case is designed for ventilation, shock resistance, and impact protection.


Alarm Button Installation

- An alarm button is installed at the driver’s position to allow timely alerts to management in case of emergencies.


Voice Intercom Installation

- Installed at the driver’s position, allowing communication with management during emergencies through the monitoring host’s voice intercom module.
