Abstract


Local positioning System is a well known problem that has been in focus for years. If the position by any means of transport having contact with ground is known, there are many important applications. While GPS has been widely used for outdoor application there is as yet no local positioning system with broad applicability for situations where GPS is unavailable or unreliable. The main objective of this research is to design and develop a Local Positioning System (LPS) that practically identify the exact location of any means of transport which has physical contact with ground. The system successfully implemented for possible information of direction, and speed of vehicle. The communication strategy is telephonic medium which can be changed to microwave. The research suggests low cost, Local Positioning System (LPS) which is designed, developed and tested and successfully implemented in controlled environment, based on 8751 Microcontroller Assembly language and Visual Basic. This system can be setup in different public departments such as Hospitals Ambulance services, Police Monitoring system and freight services etc. to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency.
