Abstract

The purpose of this research project is to implement an automatic monitoring system for vehicle routes, integrating GPS receiving modules, processing and modem communication with mobile phones, VHF/UHF, and communication satellites. The complete integration of the system embarked upon will enable better operational performance (through greater resident processing capacity) and a lower installation costs. The use of alternative satellite communications and the use of dispersed control centers will enable operating costs to be lowered compared with the solutions currently available on the market. The system will enable greater operational security and planning, as well as the automatic location of vehicles. The main users will be commercial vehicle fleets, military vehicles, ambulances and private vehicles. (AU)
