  • What is the best way to track ?

     

    A man developed dementia. He wandered off and was found three days later in a small wood a few miles away. Sadly, he died on his way to hospital. What sort of electronic device could have been used to locate him sooner

    Location tracking is a rapidly growing field, to the point where it looks as though almost everyone will be tracked within the next decade or so. Parents are tracking children and pets, and sometimes their own parents. Health services and care homes are tracking patients. Local authorities and other employers are tracking lone workers, for safety reasons. Distributors and delivery services are tracking vehicles and sometimes couriers. Military organisations are tracking soldiers. Millions of people are using fitness bands to track themselves, their heart rates, their sleep patterns and so on.

     

     

    Personal GPS Tracker Tech :

    Today, most people carry mobile phones, which provide several ways to track you – assuming the phone is switched on. This was driven by the need to locate people who made emergency calls in the US. The basic system uses the phone's roaming signal, which polls nearby phone masts to find the best signal. The phone’s position can then be calculated by multilateration. Most smartphones now use hybrid location systems for increased accuracy. This combines the cell-tower data with information from GPS satellite systems and, increasingly, from wifi networks. A Personal GPS Tracker system works better in open countryside, but people moving around in city malls are easier to track via wifi. 

    The simplest way to track someone is therefore to put a mobile sim (subscriber identification module) into a pendant, badge or wrist-worn device. Devices that don’t have their own sim can get location information from GPS satellites or by using Bluetooth to pair with a nearby smartphone. However, every device will need some sort of network connection to send data to whoever is doing the tracking, so you may as well build it in.
