I am a trainee telecomm engineer, and I'm planning to do a project on wireless vehicle tracking system. Could you offer me any information on this, or a place to begin my research?

Wireless tracking systems use Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to determine a vehicle's physical location. The vehicle may be equipped with a recording device that simply documents its geographic coordinates at regular intervals. Alternatively, some type of radio transmitter (GSM, CDPD, CDMA, etc) may be placed in the vehicle so that it can report its coordinates to a tracking center. This can occur on-demand, at intervals, or continuously (real-time tracking).

Here are a few links to get you started with your research.
