Bully's bus tracker was developed by the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) at Mississippi State University. Bully's bus tracker is based on the Vehicle Performance Monitoring System (VPMS) developed by the automotive electronics group at CAVS. VPMS is a system for monitoring vehicle position and performance. The VPMS consists of a tracking device and an Internet accessible server. The tracking device monitors vehicle performance parameters such as speed, engine RPM, coolant temperature, throttle position, engine load, etc., in addition to the vehicle's position. This data is transmitted wirelessly to the VPMS server over a cellular Internet or local wireless connection.
- Provides vehicle performance and position tracking system to users via the Internet
- Incorporates Global Positioning System (GPS) technology for vehicle location
- Uses existing in-vehicle automotive standards to gather performance data (e.g., OBD-II, SAE J1850, and SAE J1979)
- Communicates using Cellular Internet Services such as Evolution Data Only (EvDO) or Wireless LANs such as 802.11
