Officials at the Senate Office of the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper have issued a request for information for Global Positioning System devices in vehicles.
According to the document, possible areas for GPS usage include: stolen vehicle recovery assistance; remotely activated car door locks; Web-enabled client access for vehicle tracking; parked car towing alert notification; searches for parked cars; excessive speed notifications; real-time automatic theft notification; notification of engine problems; archival vehicle tracking records; and remote starts for cold weather or executive security.
Responses are due no later than Oct. 29.
The sergeant at arms acts as the chief law enforcement officer, protocol officer and executive officer for the Senate.
