From Robin Lovelock: I officially retired in 2012, but my wife June says that I retired 10 years before ! GPSS.co.uk began in 1995 for my GPS Software business - now a hobby. Millions of copies of GPSS were distributed on PC Magazine CD. 10,600 + people in 150 countries contacted me then used GPSS. SatNav was not easily available then, and GPSS did much more. e.g. RDF, AVL, and Chase. GPSS speaks your language. e.g. Russian or Japanese. Some of my pages are old, and some are updated. e.g. Snoopy's attempts to cross the Atlantic from UK to USA, every year since 2012. See Snoopy's Robot Sailing Boat or click on the changing picture to the right. Since 2002, I maintain the NHSCare.info Coughlan Campaign Charity site, helping people in the UK to use the Law to get free long term care from the NHS, and not have to pay for the care home. I also have inside knowledge into UK NHS mental health treatment. See Robin's Grumpy Book with my personal views on World events. Much of GPSS.co.uk has changed little over more than 20 years. Since I retired, I'm too busy for paid work. Visit my Bigger Picture Page, for a route map to this site, and how I spend my time.
based on an extract from my Grumpy Book : I entered Defence Industry as an apprentice in the mid 1960s. Ferranti sent me to University for a B.Sc in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. That's where I saw Dr Strangelove. I became a Systems Engineer, and work included Royal Navy ship software. I worked for SHAPE as a NATO scientist through the 1970s, when GPS and the Internet were secret. Our young family returned to the UK in 1981 and I worked for EASAMS until starting our small GPS Software business in 1994 - now a hobby. In publicity about Snoopy's Robot Boat, the Press called me a "Retired NATO Scientist". Perhaps that should have been "Mad Retired NATO Scientist" :-)
This GPS Software pioneered navigation and remote tracking for police, military, business and the public, from 1990.
See how to navigate with this GPS Software (GPSS). then download and run it on your PC to see a demonstration.
Run GPSS on a Laptop or Pocket PC with a GPS, and this same GPS Software will work for real.
Need a GPS ? click on GPS for advice. See Robin's new toy: the Linx 8 and GPSS with Speech Input.
See ASONTV and Robin's YouTube Channel A bigger list of Robin's pages are here .
The last software update was
GPSS Baseline v6.97 November 2011
with GPSSppc v14 for Pocket PC based Smartphones.
"where is the book ?" See User Guide to GPSSppc for Pocket PC and GPSS Guide for Windows.
Radio Direction Finding
e.g. tracking a radio transmitter - see picture on the right.
Techys can add mapping to GPSS. e.g. maps from Bing and Google maps; sounds for spoken guidance.
"It's like having a little friend in the car with you" :-) Make GPSS speak other languages.
geocaching, "GPS Teasure Hunting" that started in 2001 ?
"Speed Trap ! Watch your speed !" - see the speed warning page.
See AVL/CHASE page for remote tracking, including fleet management and security applications.
GPSS can track and control multiple vehicles from a fixed or mobile PC, by use of mobile 'phone, radio or satellite communications.
The objects tracked may be vehicles, people, boats, or even bottles. They may be many miles away, but seen on mapping for 164 countries - right down to "house level" maps.
GPSS can be used in "chase" mode, guiding the driver to a mobile target. See
AsOnTV for UK police doing this in 1996.
You will see that I am extremely "up front" about who we are, and our GPS Software business since 1995 - now a hobby :-)
See my business page. Big resources are not needed to give people permission to use GPSS, or make the occasional software change. I've worked in larger companies and on larger projects than most people, and have no need to pretend what I am not. I greatly respect others who are able to be equally "up front" about themselves and their own business - however small it is - so don't be shy :-)
I would like to thank the many thousands of "enthusiasts" around the World who helped us test and improve GPSS. This was a family business, but it is still a great network of friends. Thankyou.
