NEW DELHI: The latest from the Reliance Infocomm kitty is a vehicle tracking system (VTS), which can offer updates every two seconds on a 24-hour basis. Speaking at the sidelines of Supercomm 2003, Bala Krishna, ECFU, Reliance Infocomm, informed CNS that the system has already been successfully deployed by sister company Reliance Logistics. "The results of the captive business has been successful enough for us to offer the package to customers outside the company," he added.

The VTS deploys Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geography Information System (GIS), and uses the CDMA backbone of the company. It tracks freight movements and forecast vehicle arrivals, superimpose location data of the vehicles on maps and routes and control shipment delivery cycles in real-time.

BB Anand, president, business development, Reliance Infocomm, when contacted was unable to comment on whether the VTS would be a Reliance Infocomm service, or an extension of Reliance Logistics. “Right now, I do not have any data. But RIL is a big group, and so many things keep on happening at the same time,” he summed up.

According to industry observers, it is logical for Reliance Logistics to enter the segment.
