VEHICLE LOCATION AND TRAFFICKING INFORMATION
AVAILABLE FOR NEARLY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
A former government contractor claims it can locate the real time locations of specific cars in nearly any country on Earth. It says data can be obtained and sent by the car and it’s components.
It claims it can provide clients with the ability to locate vehicles in nearly every country on a near real time basis. It claims the ability to access over 15 billion vehicle locations around the world every month.
The company says it has not sold the product to the U.S. government at this time. The news shows the scale and reach of the car tracking technology. Car location data is of interest to insurance companies, finance companies, and to government contractors who explicitly say they want to source the data for intelligence and surveillance purposes.
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) often include sensors in vehicle parts that collect information such as their airbag and seatbelt status, engine temperature, and current location, and then transmit that information to the automaker or to third parties. Aggregator companies also purchase or obtain this data, repackage it, and then sell that data or products based on it to their own clients.
Vehicle location data is transmitted on a constant and near real time basis while the vehicle is operating.
The Navy acknowledged a request for comment, but did not answer specific questions on whether the company demoed the vehicle location data product to the Navy or not. The NGA did approve a statement in time for publication.
The president of the company that gathers this data said, “Any propriety promotional material we may have produced is aspirational and developed based on publicly available information about modern telematics equipment. We do not have any contracts with the government or any of it’s agencies related to our work in the field and we have never received any funding whatsoever from the government related to telematics.” However, the website contains the following:
The document does not explain exactly how the company sources it’s data, be that directly from automakers or OEMs, or via an aggregator company. But their are plenty of companies that could be contributing.
This is an example of how the car location data industry functions.
FFS makes no judgment, pro or con on this information but provide it FYI only.
God put us on Earth to do a certain work that only we can do. God created us to do good works and that he planned in advance what we would spend our lives doing. However, he didn’t plan for us to do that work alone. We need people to work with us.
You know the feeling you get when you do too much work on your own. You get exhausted and burned out. Why? Because you’re trying to do your work alone, while God never meant for it to be that way.
In Ecclesiastes 4:9, God tells us, “Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together” (NCV). When you work as a team, you get so much more done. Plus, having good teammates alongside you is a whole lot more fun and less tiring!
As you walk through life, remember that you’re not supposed to do everything on your own. You need other people to walk alongside you, and other people also need you. As you share the burden of your work with others, you’ll find that you actually accomplish more for the glory of God.
