This project titled Destination Alarm utilizing GPS is an attempt to include an alarm facility for mobiles based on the location of the devices. This facility is presently not available for mobile handsets.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that gives area and time data in all climate, anywhere on or close to the Earth, where there is an unobstructed line to at least four GPS satellites. It is kept up by the US government. The proposed system designed to make utilization of this office and actualize it in mobile handsets with the goal that location-based alarm facility can be made available in mobile handsets.
In the situation when we are on a long excursion, we tend to have a nap in the might result in missing our destination. This application with the help of GPS calculates the distance that is traveled and activates an alert when a predefined distance is reached.
Likewise, we develop an application that utilizations Google Maps and GPS to track the location. We can choose any location on the map and the application triggers an alarm when that location reached. This may be valuable for the people who need to utilize location as a parameter rather than time.
