Hi i'm a university student in Ireland in the early processes of
researching GPS(very early).

I am thinking of doing a project on this subject but am first
checking out the various costs involved.

My idea is to use it to track say 3 vehicles.

What i need to know is
1.What is the best tracking device available?
2.What would the equipment end up costing per car?
3.The signals are generally sent over a gsm network.
Is there any other way
4.When the information is relayed back to the base station is there
another device needed to interpret the information?
5.Is there maping technology for Ireland?

Thanks in advance for any help

GPS is worldwide so I don't see why you couldn't get coverage in Ireland.

Look here - http://www.gpstrackmasters.com/products/

and since you're on the other side of the pond look here - http://www.findware.co.uk/gpstrackingdevices/surveillance_tracking.htm

GPS is common worldwide. Many trucking companies, taxicab and limo services use them to in order to track their employees.

Some can relay real time information, some will simply record data and not transmit it. This is good if you don't want to have your signals sent over a(any) network(s).

You could look into an internet based GPS service. Something like - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=34289&item=3094088259&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

The thing is you need to be able to physically retrieve the unit in order to find out where the car has been.

Good luck.
