Click here for page on robot boat to cross Atlantic from UK to USA Robin Lovelock 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, to see how we spend time. e.g. Hobbies and Holidays :-) white strip

Dr Strangelove Cockleshell Heroes 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" :-)

Tried 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.

GPS tracking of people near BBC TV Centre 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.

Robin You will see that I am extremely "up front" about who we are, and our GPS Software business since 1995 - now a hobby :-)

GPS Software on Laptop PC 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.

RM LCU on horizon. black strip BBC Panorama Special on 15th March 2017 Marine A Robin From Robin on Saturday 18th March 2017: The whole 40 minutes of this BBC Panorama Special, broadcast on the night of 15th March 2017, on UK BBC TV Channel 1, at 2245Z UK time, is now on BBC I-Player. Ideally, the video will become available with subtitles, capable of translation into any language, including Russian, Chinese, and Arabic. e.g. on Youtube. I stayed up to watch it, and afterwards told June, my wife since 1971, that she should watch all of it on BBC I-Player, since it would tell her much about myself that she did not know. If you click on the left picture, it took you to the BBC article and the short video trailer . It now takes you to the full 40 minutes*. The trailer was from the perspective of a UK audience, and the subject of this particular case - hopefully leading to a suspended sentence. However, to me, the programme has a much wider relevance than this case, or the Afghanistan War. The most significant statement being a firm "No", in the closing minutes. I am often reminded of my time drinking, and swapping yarns, in the 1970s, with guys who served in Korea, or USAF officers, returning through Europe from Vietnam. In later years it included the guys in that EASAMS "Barossa Operation", swapping yarns in the Cambridge Pub in Camberley, about British Army Operations in Ireland and elsewhere. My wife may even remember that evening in the Windmill Pub, when Ian spoke of his time in Belfast and Yemen. More recently, that "Quiet American", ex US Marine, then a "Contractor", spending a memorable day, for me, as "Team-Sapper", doing some Geocaching, and being shown a few local landmarks like the Kennedy Memorial. Most of this is tucked away on my pages, and will not mean a thing to the vast majority of my friends. * 23 March 2017: that full Youtube video is now here and linked from the image above. white strip
