ABSTRACT
The wide spread of mobiles as handheld devices would
naturally lead to various innovative applications that makes
use of their ever increasing presence in our daily life. One
such application is location-tracking in indoor
environments. In this paper we discuss the implementation
of a simple and cost effective system that assists users in
tracking colleagues and friends within a campus
environment. The system uses the information built in a
typical mobile such as its IMEI and IMSI and the various
WiFi access points on campuses to pin point a user's
position. A mobile application program communicates with
a web server and a GSM modem to provide users with real
time data related to a person's movements and location.
