The Honeywell Global Positioning System (GPS) is a world-wide radio-navigation system formed from a constellation of 24 satellites and their ground stations. These man-made stars are used to calculate the position of objects, such as cars, trucks, busses, trains, planes and laptop computers with a GPS receiver.
The GPS system provides location in the form of latitude and longitude information, giving every square meter on the planet a unique address. This information plotted against a map can identify the exact location of the pick-up and drop-off points for transported students, passengers, goods and services. Coupled with a mobile video surveillance system, this system allows video recording, which identifies the time, date and location of stops, pick-ups and deliveries.
For transportation and transit professionals the GPS system offers an interesting value proposition and added benefits. For transportation professionals who perform route management, the GPS system provides the ability to review video in order to understand how long it takes to get from point A to point B. The GPS recorded data includes direction and vehicle travel speed, and when combined with video, it provides transportation professionals with an effective route planning tool.
Installers will appreciate the ease of installation of the GPS system. No longer is it necessary to get accurate speed readings connecting the speedometer to the transmission. Generally, all that is required for the installation is to plug the unit into the power and signal harness and thread the antenna wiring. The low profile GPS antenna is fixed to the roof of the bus by a powerful magnet built into the antenna base.
