Sousveillance and GPS

Dispositivos mveis de localizao, como os GPS, redes Wi-Fi, RFID e cell-ID esto servindo efetivamente como instrumentos de controle e de vigilncia. Mas tambm podem ser usados como sistemas de contra-vigilncia ou de “sous-veillance”, “inverse surveillance”, como gosta de falar Steve Mann. J mostramos vrias experincias e usos artstico mostrando formas de “contra-vigilncia” nesse Carnet.

GPSs, alimentados com bancos de dados (no web site PhantomAlert, colcaborativo j que vc pode alimentar o sistema) avisam (com sinal sonoro) ao motorista quando ele passa por radares e cmeras de infra-vermelho. Os dados so do Canad e EUA (Via GPS Obsessed)

“Thanks to, a website that has compiled an extensive database of both American and Canadian speed trap and red light camera locations, you can import the entire 3400 troublespot database to your Garmin, TomTom, Magellan, or other compatible device by connected you GPS device to your PC via USB. Once imported, every time you happen to approach a speed trap or red light camera, your GPS unit will alert you with both audio and visual warnings. If you happen to be one of the unlucky few that hit a trap that isn’t in the database yet, you can head to the PhantomAlert website and contribute all the details yourself. The database is free to download and use for one year, after which a $25 annual subscription fee covers updates. Plus if youre still looking to jump on the GPS bandwagon, you can purchase a unit from PhantomAlert and receive free updates for life.”
