Annotation: A SYSTEM IS DESCRIBED WHICH WILL USE VEHICLE-MOUNTED ELECTRONICS IN CONJUNCTION WITH FIXED SUPPORT ELEMENTS TO PROVIDE FOR THE DETECTION AND LOCATION OF VEHICLE-RELATED THEFT ACTIVITIES INCLUDING HIJACKINGS.
Abstract: THE SYSTEM DOES NOT REQUIRE THE PREPLANNING OF VEHICLE ROUTES AND IS INDEPENDENT OF AND PROTECTED FROM DRIVER ACTIONS. ANALYSES OF THE CONSTITUENT ELEMENTS OF CARGO CRIME AND OF INDUSTRY ECONOMICS HAVE ESTABLISHED COST BOUNDS FOR A PRODUCTION SYSTEM, AND POLICE RESPONSE MODELING AND SIMULATION HAVE BEEN USED TO DETERMINE THE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VEHICLE LOCATION SUBSYSTEM. A SURVEY SHOWS THAT NO EXTANT LOCATION TECHNOLOGY CAN MEET THE COST/PERFORMANCE GOALS OF THE SYSTEM. TWO CANDIDATE TECHNOLOGIES, A HYBRID DEAD RECKONING SYSTEM AND A HYBRID PHASE LOCK SYSTEM HAVE BEEN INSTALLED IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
