GPS Navigation and Tracking Device


Abstract and Figures

Since the introduction of GPS Navigation systems in the marketplace, consumers and businesses have been coming up with innovative ways to use the technology in their everyday life. GPS Navigation and Tracking systems keep us from getting lost when we are in strange locations, they monitor children when they are away from home, keep track of business vehicles and can even let us know where a philandering partner is at all times. Because of this we attend to build a GPS tracking device to solve the mentioned problems. Our work consists of the GPS module that collects data from satellites and calculates the position information before transmitting them to the user’s PC (of Navigation system) or observers (of Tracking System) using wireless technology (GSM).

The Internet of Things (IoT) connecting many electronic devices via internet has been ubiquitous in the last decade. For instance, electric or hybrid cars and autonomous vehicles which are supported by many automotive and IT companies. IoT does not only provide internal monitoring service of the devices, but also the environmental situation. Meanwhile, smartphones are equipped with embedded built-in sensors, and also providing wireless communications. In consequence, vehicular telematics based on smartphone is growing rapidly. This paper proposes a vehicular smartphone docking prototype. It aims not only to provide an affordable alternative to Android Auto and CarPlay, but also to complement them, particularly in vision and security cases. The main issue is that the driver should not be distracted while driving. Such distraction may cause road accident which can lead to severe injuries and even death. Therefore, it is important to design a vehicle smartphone docking to guarantee distraction avoidance and to provide multimedia and localization services. This vehicular smartphone docking architecture consists of an Android smartphone and a Raspberry Pi. Several test drives were conducted with perfect results. Based on the experiment results, this system is able to reduce the number of modules required within a smart vehicle.

This paper presents a low-cost based approach for solving the navigation problem of wheeled mobile robots to perform required tasks within indoor and outdoor environments. The presented solution is based on probabilistic approaches for multiple sensor fusion utilizing low-cost visual/inertial sensors. For the outdoor environment, the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is used to estimate the robot position and orientation, the system consists of wheel encoders, a reduced inertial sensor system (RISS), and a Global Positioning System (GPS). For the indoor environment, where GPS signals are blocked, another EKF algorithm is proposed using low cost depth sensor (Microsoft Kinect stream). EKF indoor localization is based on landmarks extracted from the depth measurements. A hybrid low-cost reduced navigation system (HLRNS) for indoor and outdoor environments is proposed and validated in both simulation and experimental environments. Additionally, an input-output state feedback linearization (I-O SFL) technique is used to control the robot to track the desired trajectory in such an environment. According to the conducted validation simulation and experimental testing, the proposed HLRNS provides an acceptable performance to be deployed for real-time applications.
The combination of technology Augmented Reality (AR) with educational content aims to create new ideas that can improve the effectiveness and attractiveness of teaching and learning for students in real-life scenarios. The use of AR technology can make theprocess of teaching and learning more enjoyable, in which students' interest in learning can be stimulated. The AR technology has three characteristics. The first feature is that AR technology is a combination of virtual objects with the real world. The second feature is that AR operates in real time and interactively. The last feature is that it has 3 dimensions (3D) for virtual objects. In this study, the ADDIE model includes five phases, namely Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation, which are utilised to develop applications based on AR technology in education for the topic of Current and Voltage Division. To identify the effectiveness of the application of AR technology, a survey using questionnaire was conducted among pre-serviceteachers to know their perceptions of the development of AR applications namely as Voltrent AR. As this is a quantitative study where questionnaires were distributed to 73 students from the class of Bachelor of Technology with Education (Electric and Electronics) with Honours and Bachelor of Technology with Education (Living Skills) with Honours at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Skudai, Johor. Most respondents gave very positive feedback on the use of AR in education, especially for the topic of Current and Voltage Division. AR is viewed as a medium of instruction that is innovative, interesting and effective. Voltrent AR application development is successfully developed based on the ADDIE model, and the application development of the constructivism theory was applied in this AR application. Thus, the AR application development has reached the desired objective of producing application-based Augmented Reality as a teaching aid.

This study investigates the design of a solar powered kite equipped with sensors for any environmental data monitoring, such as, temperature, pressure and so on towards the elevated environment. The developed prototype transforms a traditional kite with a unique design approach that involves the upward height measurement, energy harvesting by solar cells as well as data transmission via wireless network. However, the results from initial monitoring shows only the vertical mapping of ambient temperature as the test case. The developed system can successfully sense and display the temperature data from various height within a certain range as found in the initial investigation. Therefore, upon monitoring various environmental parameters at any cases or during emergency situations using the solar-kite as the simple tool, decision can be made to take appropriate measures against any detrimental changes of the environment by other means.

During this time, most vehicle service can only be done in a garage where every customer who wants to make repairs to them vehicle must bring the vehicle directly to the service shop. Under these conditions it need the use of the latest technology that can facilitate two-way communication between vehicle service providers with consumers. The solution offered in this study is in the form of applications based on Android and IOS that are connected to the internet and GPS (Global Positioning System) for vehicle repair services. With the development of the application services can be done anywhere, and users who need services can easily find out the nearest location of the vehicle service to the point of position of consumers at that real time. With the existence of this application the user does not have to go to the vehicle service shop, but the service can be done at the office, at home even in an emergency on the road though. So the application making it easier to service the user’s vehicle also helped in terms of time.
