Pukas sensor surfing.

Surfing is still a sport governed by feelings. The driving forces behind this joint project, PUKAS and TECNALIA, aim to “turn feelings into facts and figures” and provide as yet unquantified data that can be directly applied to improve the features of surfboards, the technical performance of surfers and/or measurement of parameters during competition.

“Tracking devices can be placed on shipping containers coming into and traveling around the country. This is known as geofencing and is a prime tactic in controlling the transportation of hazardous materials. One large American port city has GPS devices installed on all the fuel tankers that commonly enter its port. If the tanker strays outside its proscribed route, a remote control system shuts off the tanker’s engines”

GPS

I came across this story concerning gps a couple of weeks back, and thought it would be a great example to respond to the discussions relating to gps. It truly is impressive how useful gps and tracking is. This article demonstrates how some individuals just do not think. Criminals stole a couples phone when raiding their house and were caught by police by the gps tracking on the phone. The same can be said if a car is stolen. It amazes me how thieves think they can get away with this.
