Development of Location Detection and Human Tracking Application via GPS and GSM Service: A Pilot Study

Inurina Ibrahim and Engku Mohammad Nazreen B. Engku Azman
Abstract—With the development and awareness of social affairs concerning locating missing person and location detection services has been widely on demand. This paper explains the design and experiment of incorporating the GPS & GSM network positioning technology to deliver a locationbased service for tracking and detecting human. In this study, GPS and GSM feature were utilized to emulate the tracking and detection process. Integration of this technology is supported by the use of several applications, devices and services. The proposed model comprises of GPS sender and receiver, GSM service and provider. With the extensive use of smartphones and mobile applications, this model is useful to identify the location of a person in a public area and may benefit parents in monitoring and tracking their children whereabouts. This paper, presented the methods adopted in developing of the initial prototype as a pilot study. The result of the evaluation discussed recommendations for further improvement in the prototype development. This shall be achieved by adding specific values for a better outcome. A detail result on the improvement will be discussed in the next paper. The purpose of this study is to share this information with other researcher and to foresee ways to improve the current processes hence the same study can be initiated and explored by others. A further enhancement of this service shall be proposed and another set of evaluation should be performed thus there be a potential for application commercialization.

Index Terms—Global positioning system (GPS), global system for mobile (GSM), human tracking and detection.
