Jernej Gorički (2011) Development of hardware and software equipement for real time GPS tracking. EngD thesis.
This thesis deals with the development of an information system intended for real-time tracking of people or objects using GPS satellite system positioning. Two main parts of the system are a dedicated device, capable of obtaining the location and communicating with other components over GPRS, and an information system. The thesis presents the development of software used by the dedicated device and also the software that manages the remote application server. The main part of the thesis is divided into the hardware and the software section. The core part of the dedicated device is a Telit GSM module, whose task is to obtain information about longitude, latitude and transfer data to the remote application server. All software on the dedicated device is written in the higher-level language Python. On the other side of the system is a server application that receives data through a REST interface and stores it using Microsoft SQL Server Express. It also provides a user interface that displays visual representation of the whereabouts in real time using Bing Maps. From the software point of view the server-based applications are programmed using .Net platform and C# language, while the part of the system that handles information visualization is done with Java Script.
