Abstract This is an Android based application which requires a mobilephone with GPS support and continuous access to internet.Two main features 1. Track user current location and share it with friends/family 2. Calculate the cab fare between two locations
What is Location tracking? Location Tracking refers to attaining of current position stationary or moving Location is tracked via - multilateration of radio signals between (several) radio towers of the network and the phone - Simply via GPS
Android A Linux based OS design for touch screen mobile devices Initially developed by Android Inc, whom Google financially backed and later purchased in 2005 large community of developers writing applications. Advantages Huge Android application market Fast growing market Easy to handle Supports GPS
What is GPS?GPS- Global Positioning SystemSpace-based satellitenavigation system that provideslocation and time information in allweather, anywhere on or near theEarthUsed widely in mobile phones today.
Literature Survey Location-based Service(LBS) Locating Methods Control pane locating GSM Localization Other approaches
Proposed System• Collect user location using GPS/Mobile Network• Store location to the local server• Share the current location with friends/family• Calculate the distance between 2 locations• Calculate the fare of Taxi/Auto Rickshaw
Working of proposed system Collecting Users current location Our system collect current location of the user1. Using GPS (Global Positioning System).2. Using Network Provider. – the location provided by GPS satellites is more accurate than that provided by the network provider
Location sharing• Sharing Location with contacts: Suppose user A and user B are in phone contacts of each other. The strategies to be implemented for sharing locations are: - During a phone call - Via SMS - Manual location sharing
System Requirements Software Requirements Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo J2EE) Android SDK. Emulator to test the code (generally comes with android SDK) or a mobile device running on Android Operating System. Java 1.6 or above Front End: Android Back End: SQLite
System Requirements Hardware Requirements Processor Pentium 4 RAM 512 MB or More Hard Disk space: 10 GB or More A Mobile device Running on Android Operating system, having GPS support and continuous access to internet.
Results and Conclusions Collect users current location Store the current location in local database Share current location with friends/family in various ways Calculate the distance between two locations Calculate the fare between two locations• Calculate the distance between two locations
Future considerations Taxi reservation with the touch of few buttons Passengers can figure the distance and arrival time of taxi ride before the journey begins. Passengers will be able to pay the fare with their application Message alert when cab driver arrive at pickup location
