University of Southern California BUAD 307 Lars Perner, Ph.D., Instructor Marketing Fundamentals Spring, 2012 PROJECT PROPOSAL IMPORTANT NOTE ON GPS TECHNOLOGY: Each semester, several individuals propose products based on GPS technology. This is fine if the technology can be made to work. Please note, however, that GPS technology generally involves one way communication. A GPS system works by the process of “triangulation:” Based on the different amounts of time it takes for the signal from three or more satellites to arrive, the location of the receiver can be determined by comparing the distances to each of the satellites. (There is actually a tiny adjustment made to account for General Relativity). A GPS usually cannot transmit back to the satellite. Transmitting back to a satellite will generally require a large satellite DISH. It may be possible, however, to create a weaker local signal and “piggyback” on cell phone tower transmission. This would have to be negotiated with the cell phone companies and would add to the cost. Name: Penny P. Profit E-mail: PPProfit@usc.edu 1.
