BANGALORE : Seventeen-year old Suhas Gopinath, who has become the Chief Executive Officer of a US-based firm long before his post is accepted under Indian law, dreams of developing a low-cost vehicle tracking system in the country.

His firm Globals Inc, incorporated at San Jose in the US in 2000 when he was just 14, has a network of over 60 like-minded members across many nations.

Acclaimed as one of the youngest web developers in the world, Gopinath has dreams of developing a vehicle tracking system which costs a fraction of similar system in the country.

"We are developing a GPS (Global Positioning System) -based vehicle tracking system that would cost less than Rs 5,000 and should be launched in one year. A similar system costs upwards of Rs two lakh," Gopinath, son of a former defence scientist, told PTI.

With the launch of the new system, he can also sign agreements, which he could not do to undertake a software development project with Singapore-based Smith and Gale as the law did not permit a person under 18 to be a Chief Executive.
