1.Kerala Tourism will soon roll out a Global Positioning System-based fleet safety management system for houseboats in the State.

2.Houseboats will be tracked on a Geographic Information System (GIS) map. There will be SOS/panic buttons for timely emergency response, and the route taken by a houseboat will be geofenced to prevent route violations.

3.Keltron-iTAC, a vehicle-tracking and fleet-management solution by Keltron, a State government undertaking, will be used to track houseboats and ensure safety of tourists and crew. Sanction has been granted for the project and Rs.1.60 crore has been allocated for implementing the tracking system in 12 months.
