I want to ask a question if there is any way to Access (with some sdk or directly) a mobile phone gps and view it's location in google maps or similar? do I have to install some client on the phone? I don't want to track it via sms but Real time.

No, unless you work for NCIS.

If you're asking about running your code on a PC and connecting to some arbitrary mobile device and getting it's GPS location, then the answer is no.

how else can I do eg. I know a company offers fuel truck location through an onboard gps by sendig sms through a gsm modem.

You need to build or buy a GPS device that you can either write code for or comes with the functionality to transmit it's location. You can NOT query the device unless it exposes some interface to do so.
