Today, due to the wide use and evolution of technology, portable devices such as tablets and smartphones can be used in an emergency to call for help. The idea of the Global Position System (GPS) is to help people reach the fire department, police department, road safety department, and ambulance instantly with the click of a button. With the help of this technology, which can now be found everywhere and on mobile phones, we are motivated to develop an Android application to help people in critical situations know that help will be on its way.
Many people need instant help at some point, where something unexpected happens and they are alone with no one to help. Global Position System is mainly to help people in case of emergencies. For example, if the car goes off on the road, they could contact road safety through an app, and their location will be sent to the road safety department. Many older people live alone and may have critical conditions where they need immediate help. They, too, can click the button on the app to alert the authority they need, and it will be informed instantly. Furthermore, on each emergency request, the current location of the request could be sent with the emergency request so that the authority can come immediately to help.
Global Position System targets fast access and ease of use. The user can access it through a downloaded application on smart devices. It targets all users who need instant help. The mobile application uses GPS to determine the user’s location where the report is made. This allows the authority to reach the user in need within minutes to help. Also, hospitals will be located on the map, so when the ambulance technicians reach the user, they will be able to take them to the nearest hospital on the map. The constraint in the application is going to be in the English language. In addition, the application is going to serve only users with Android-based mobile phones.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is based on the navigation system that is used by satellites to aid in locating and tracing different positions on earth. GPS has receivers, monitors, and control stations that aid in the relay of information. The GPS receivers usually take the information broadcasted by the satellites and utilize the triangulation index to find out the precise location. The GPS can be used in the following ways:
- In determining a position or location, such as radioing helicopter-specific coordinates for effective, safe travel through airplanes.
- In navigation of safe locations, for example, in a fire, the GPS aids in locating the fire perimeter, and thus safety precaution is enabled.
- GPS is used to create digitized maps. For example, in case of a fire situation, the hot spots and fire perimeter are known prior.
- The GPS aids in determining the distance between two points. Determining how far one location is to another helps in time allocation for travel purposes.
The amended version of Linux, which is used as an operating system for smartphones, is known as Android. These days Android is preferred by most mobile developers and is considered as the market move. The popularity of smartphones is increasing thanks to Android, and many consumers prefer them. Creative and innovative mobile phone applications are developed not only because of the software but also through the attractive hardware included in smartphones: GPS and touch screens.
In 2008, Android devices appeared in the market as a major technological tycoon. The Android technology is found in netbooks, televisions, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), and cars because of their open-source platform, open philosophy, and Software Development Kit (SDK) libraries. The devices using the Android system are available in diversified sizes and shapes. In addition, Eclipse is recommended as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that contains documentation, tutorials, debugger, and emulator used to develop multi-language software with the addition of Android SDK and an extensive plug-in system.About Complete Controller® – America’s Bookkeeping Experts Complete Controller is the Nation’s Leader in virtual bookkeeping, providing service to businesses and households alike.
