Even today, an abominable lull is created when Indian women step out with a niggling fear in their minds about their safety. We often hear about rape cases that make our blood run cold. Newspapers are testimonies to the fact that India is yet to break the shackles of such maladies that beleaguer its female citizens. The cause can be imputed to the time gap between the actual time of the crime and its time of reporting to the police. If somehow the victims could convey their plight in real time… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Smart Electronic Device for Women’s Safety with GPS Tracking & Alerts
A GPS-based women’s safety system that has an additional dual security feature in this project, which consists of a system that ensures dual alerts in case a woman is harassed or she thinks she is in trouble.
Wearable for Mixed Indoor/Outdoor Localization
It is presented a new approach to wearable tracking devices making it suitable for a person with dementia, using Wi-Fi based geolocation, which, in an urban environment, can be used not only as an indoor positioning system but also as an outdoor positioning system.
Real time speed detection and ticketing system
A developed system can be installed into a vehicle, possibly during manufacturing, to detect if a vehicle is breaching the speed limit and if so, the driver is notified of the fine via an SMS instantly and a copy of the ticket is printed on the administrator and can be mailed to the driver.


Low Energy and Sufficiently Accurate Localization for Non-smartphones
This paper proposes a novel GSM-based approach of using Cell Broadcast Service (CBS) messages for getting current location on the phone and presents a multimodal approach that uses combination of both CBS and Cell ID to improve the localization accuracy.
Real-time tracking management system using GPS, GPRS and Google earth
Goo-Tracking is proposed, a GPS tracking system composed of commodity hardware, open source software and an easy-to-manage user interface via a Web server with Google Map or via Google Earth software that has shown great stability and also robust message transfer protocol.
Cell-ID location technique, limits and benefits: an experimental study
Experiments show that the accuracy of Cell- ID is not satisfactory as a general solution, and it is shown how Cell-ID can be effectively exploited to implement more effective and efficient voice location-based services.
Centroid Localization of Uncooperative Nodes in Wireless Networks Using a Relative Span Weighting Method
This work proposes two new algorithms for estimating the position of an uncooperative transmitter, based on the received signal strength (RSS) of a single target message at a set of receivers whose coordinates are known.

A mobile location estimation based on the differences of downlink signal attenuations is proposed, which provides a possible mobile location method if the relationship between distance and signal attenuation is determined.
A Cost Effective Real-Time Tracking System Prototype Using Integrated GPS/GPRS Module
A real time tracking system that provides accurate localizations of the tracked vehicle with low cost and information regarding the vehicle status such as speed, mileage is presented.
Weighted Centroid Localization in Zigbee-based Sensor Networks
Weighted centroid localization (WCL) provides a fast and easy algorithm to locate devices in wireless sensor networks that is derived from a centroid determination which calculates the position of devices by averaging the coordinates of known reference points.

A new adaptive enhanced cell-ID (AECID) localization method that provides location results in terms of minimal areas with a guaranteed confidence, adapted against live measurements and can be viewed as a robust fingerprinting algorithm.
Accuracy characterization of cell tower localization
This paper provides the first large scale study of the accuracy of two existing methods for cell tower localization using wardriving data, and concludes that one can localize a cell accurately only if it falls within the area covered by the Wardriving trace.
