Project Summary

Most of the families have both parents working. They are too busy to spend time with them, drop or pickup their kids or be with them for a long time. This means, kids manage to go to school, play, classes etc, all by themselves, which becomes a trend which malicious people can observe and create problems. This project aims at making extremely cheap and easily accessible GPS monitoring systems that parents can provide to their kids and the kids wont even know about it. This is not only usably in the case of kids but also can be used to track adults, aged people, birds, animals etc
