GPS Tracker Introduction
 What is Tracking:
   Locating the current geographic position of the object (person, vehicle, asset etc)
   Tracking the object of your desire 24x7 around the world
   Obtaining current location information and viewing it on the Maps




 GPS Tracking Unit:
   A Device that uses the Global Positioning System satellites to determine the precise location of a
    vehicle, person, or other asset
   Records the position of the asset at regular intervals
   Light weight, easy to install and runs on car battery consuming very little power

RFID Introduction
 RFID : Radio Frequency Identification
   A small chip or a smart card
   Thin enough to stick on boxes or carry in wallets
   Carries information to uniquely identify item or user
   Secure - Unauthorized person can not get personal information from this card



 RFID : Latest pervasive technology to identify
 individual items
   Fast replacing the older and less efficient ‘bar code’ system of identifying package information
   RFID electronic tags do not require a visual scan and can carry significantly more information
   Along with tracking packages, persons can also be tracked
   All major offices have already allotted their employees with RFID cards for security concerns

RFID Utility
 RFID as an access control method
   RFID has been in use as an access control mechanism for a long time now
   Employees use their allotted RFID cards at the Entrance to the office
   Can avoid trespassing in restricted areas by allotting different Privileges
   Can also be used as an Attendance System by capturing the time information each
    time the user flashes his RFID card in front of the reader



    RFID has proved its capability in these static environments. The same
    technology can be made to work in similar manner in moving assets as well.
    In the next slide we present this situation and the merits.

Tracker + RFID : Complete Solution
 Tracker as a way to know geographical position

 RFID as a way to identify individual item/persons

 RFID + Tracker :
  Whereabouts of the individual items/person can be determined
  where
  Person : Carrying RFID (No Tracker needed)
  Vehicle : Fitted with Tracker

 RFID combined with Tracker has a diversified utility as will be
  evident in the subsequent slides

Application : Overview
 RFID : Applications in the following fields
    Offices – To identify persons
    Shopping Malls – To identify items/products
    Logistics – To identify cargo shipments


 RFID + Tracker : Several Solutions such as
    Cabs – For security of passengers
    School Buses – For children’s safety and Parents’ Concern
    Cargo Tracking – For better control over cargo and
     distribution management
    Public Transport System


                 Copyright (c) Techlead Software Engg. Pvt. Ltd.
Application : Pickup Cabs
 Problem:
   A lot of incidences where passengers were victimized


   Main Reason - the increasing popularity of small vehicles (cabs) for pick
    ups and drops, which are intrinsically less secure

   Such small vehicles are easy target for miscreants because of ease in
    hijacking

   Many firms have tried assigning security personnel to escort lady
    commuters, but it is an infeasible solution considering the large number of
    private cabs



                   Copyright (c) Techlead Software Engg. Pvt. Ltd.
Application : Pickup Cabs
 A Feasible and Effective Solution:
   All Major offices already using RFID’s
   Cabs owners are highly interested in knowing where their cabs are
   Tracking and RFID together will serve the above two purposes well
   The system sends SMS alerts to predefined numbers when a commuter with
    RFID tag enters a cab fitted with reader
   Receive SMS alerts when the commuter gets down from cab
   Receive alert if the cab leaves its predefined path
   An Emergency button inside car can trigger an alert to Police



      In all above cases one can easily find the exact location of
      the person travelling in the cab. This can help reduce the
                   crimes where cabs are concerned.

Application : School Buses
 Problem:
    Guardians always concerned of the safety of children


   School children are not allowed to carry cell phones to
    school

   Not feasible for the school authorities to call each parent


   For working parents another situation of concern is
    whether their children have reached home in time after
    the school or not

                Copyright (c) Techlead Software Engg. Pvt. Ltd.
Application : School Buses
 Solution with RFID enabled Tracker
    Tracking + RFID is an effective solution in relieving the parents of
     this worry
    School buses fitted with RFID enabled tracker and children
     carrying RFID nametags can let parents track where their children
     are
    The system can be configured to alert the parents of their child
     getting out of or getting onto the bus in real time
    The Tracker unit can be interfaced with external sensor hardware to
     make bus more safe or to call for help during crisis
    Many more alerts can be configured with system in cases such as:
         If their child does not board the bus when it leaves from school
         If bus takes a halt between school and home
         If the bus breaks down

Application : Future
 Public Transport System
    Public Bus System
        Municipal Corporations looking for new technologically advanced equipment to enhance services
        Installing Tracking units in public buses will help users check the bus schedules and estimated times
         of arrival online or at the bus stops
        By making Passengers carry their RFID cards during their transit using public buses, their loved ones
         can trace them and be sure of their safety
    Metro trains
        After success of Delhi Metro, Metro projects have been scheduled in all major cities of India
        All passengers can carry their RFID tags and each Metro train compartment can have an RFID reader
         to enable tracking.
        Delhi Metros existing ticket tokens have an embedded RFID in it. By linking Delhi Metros ticket
         tokens and traveling users Database with Tracking system a lot of hardware setup cost can be
         reduced and users will not have to carry extra RFID cards.


 Railway Cargo Tracking
     Government postal system using railway services for cargo transfer can provide their customers a value
     added service by providing a check on the package location in real time.
