[Q] [QUESTION] GPS tracker with app development
So hello! Let me first introduce myself.. I'm Haris a.k.a. Bosnyan and I just started with a study called IBMS (International Business and Manegement Studies for the curious ones) and have this project in my first year called Young Entrepreneurship, where I have to start a company with a group of other students and at the end of the year this should be a running company with a profit (hopefully.) So we were brainstorming about what could be a useful product, that hasen't been on the market yet and then I came with the idea of producing a GPS tracker which allows you to track down your bike/scooter, since there are A LOT of them here in the Netherlands. There are obviously challenges that lie with the product, one which is of course the software aspect.
So my questions are:
- Is it possible to find a gps tracker/tag with your smartphone with the proper software/app?
- Is this possible just based on software or is an external reciever nesessary for example?
- How accurate will it be?
- Can you do it and if so, are you interested to do it for me (with a cash reward of course) in the near future around beginning 2014?
Thanks a lot in advance!
A GPS tag for your bike/scooter
It’s easy to see that the people of the Netherlands largely rely on the bike and/or scooter as their means of traveling. With so many bikes, especially in Amsterdam people losing their bikes is a daily occurrence. Either by getting their bike stolen or simply not being able to find it. The same goes for scooters. Although you’re not likely to lose your scooter by not being able to find it, there is a reasonable possibility for it to get stolen. That’s where such a GPS comes in handy, because you will be able to track down your bike or scooter you lost. You will be able to track down your bike or scooter with an app you download on your Android or iOS device. First you get a map perspective which shows where you are and your bike or scooter is. As you get closer to your vehicle the map zooms in further and further until you’re close enough for a radar map to pop up for you to find your vehicle as accurate as possible
