TRKR - Team Tracker
Track your team in the field at a disaster site with only smartphones
This team is looking for
Our idea is a team tracking app (TRKR) that would allow team members to load a small app on their smartphones and then be tracked by their team leader via a web app (on a map). The smartphone app would be native, run in the background and ping the server every N minutes with location data (very low network bandwidth needed). The smartphone app could also detect movement (with the accelerometer) and ping new location data while on the move. this should allow for very low battery usage and minimal usage of GPS calls. TRKR can support delay-tolerant networks, including temporary long-distance WiFi networks and intermittent and low bandwidth G2 service.
