Using GPS to track school buses

GPS Tracks School Buses, Automatically Reports Crashes
In New Jersey, the Gloucester Township Public School District and Police Department launched a school bus monitoring system that utilizes GPS technology. The system enables the police to track the buses' movement and speed, and provides a panic button that the driver can activate during an emergency. It also automatically reports emergency events, like crashes, to the local police department.

The secret to this sort of system is to have antennas which are weather proof, small, and with sufficient range to get the job done.
