Webcam + audio + GPS + vehicle buss data

PLS reply to mchenney @ mindspring.com
I want to use a wide angle webcam (?) in a mobile application to record 640 x 480 data at 15 -30 frames per second, for days at a time ( target
is 7 days, but only when there is a certain level of motion. The recording will be a round file type where there is always the latest data, oldest being erased. Would also like to include voice audio.
Plan was to use Webcam + Laptop ( 100G HD ) over USB 2 or maybe Firewire. Also want to keep the equipment cost =<< $ 2,000.00
Questions and looking for recommendations:
In future or maybe now would include time / date / GPS and vehicle bus operational data on periodic frames or in parallel files, as data changes.
USB or Firewire?
How fast or recommended processor / laptop?
Any software recommendations?
Alternate solutions?
Thanks
Dennis
