GPS Child Finder

Bachelor Thesis

About This Topic

Develop an Android application that shows the location of your child on a map. The app is intended for local use (e.g. max range of 50 meters) and should comprise of a GPS-based location device (to be carried by the child) that sends the current position over Bluetooth (class 1 = 100m) to the mobile phone. The app shows a map with location and direction of the child based on the current orientation of the device. Thus, on larger playgrounds it can be used to answer the recurring question: "Where is my child?"
