Portable Tracking System Using GPS
Jonathan Burr & Kevin Arvin
Advisor: Dr. J. Sennott

A compact, low cost, and durable computer controlled storage and interface unit (CSIU) to operate in conjunction with a six-channel Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver has been designed and constructed. The CSIU is designed for locating any position on the surface of the earth with applications from tracking vehicles to mapping land contours. The unit is controlled by a single board DOS computer via a twelve key user keypad and display. The CSIU and receiver is self contained and self powered for portable applications. Testing was facilitated by developing and testing programs on a PC, which were then downloaded onto the single board computer for execution.
