Customer Terminal

Overview

The customer interface provides the customers of swannremovals with peace of mind and security by allowing them track the location of their goods, along with the removals vehicle. The website is located at www.swannremovals.co.uk and presents a simple HTML interface that presents the location of the vehicle on a map provided by the google maps API.

The swannremovals website is hosted by the central server and is also responsible for receiving the position data from the telematic device. This is done using a HTTP POST request form that saves the GPS - POST - data to a log file for processing by the customer terminal.
