Bus safety regulation to target GPS (2)

By Zhi Yun (China Daily)

"Severe punishments will be issued in these circumstances, such as the cancelation of the company's operating permit," he said, adding that the regulation will be established by the end of the year.

There are nearly 1,000 companies in China producing standardized GPS terminals for the two kinds of vehicles, and the products' quality is stable, Hou said.

He also said China is developing its own version of the global positioning system called Beidou (Compass) Navigation Satellite System. "Hopefully in the future it will take the place of GPS used in these vehicles," Hou said.

Beidou's technology is not highly developed, and can only be used in conjunction with a GPS, he said. Its precision and reliability need to be improved and more satellites need to be launched.

According to the administration, the country invested more than 420 million yuan ($66 million) in the GPS monitoring system in 2011.
