Nowadays the world faces security obstacles, the data can be accessed or penetrate easily. Thus we need to ensure the safety of our school children in the North east zone through data monitoring in form of chip. One of trajectories that need data acquisition and collection is tracking system. In this project, the scope of work is to design and implement a real time tracker embedded in the school uniform of school children and Android application (ready-made) installed in a remote device or in centralized server to monitor the movements and location of the kids. The system is contains two separated devices, one is (Linkit-One) which is connected with GSM/GPRS and GPS antennas and the other is a mobile phone operated by Android 4.4 OS or greater. During motion/stop its location update can be continuously reported using GPRS service and server. This information will be plotted using Google maps on the monitoring device/server. The system had been implemented and tested. All the results had been achieved and recorded for future work. This thesis achieved monitoring of location, speed in pre-defined area and option of getting out the zones under specific condition


Background to the study

Tracking system is very important in modern world; this can be useful in navigation, monitoring, tracking of the terrorist groups.These days, however, with technology growing at a fast pace, automated tracking system is being used in a variety of ways to track and display locations human beings and non object in real-time . A school children tracking system that uses GPS/GSM/GPRS technology and a Smartphone application provide a better service and cost effective solution in the fight against insurgency in the North East.
The present study is on the design and development of a school children tracking and monitoring. The system principally monitors school children movement such as position, and speed.
The ability to accurately detect a children’s location and its status is the main goal of automobile trajectory monitoring systems hence this project.

 Statement of the problem

This school children tracking system faces heavily  the Global Positioning System (GPS). This is because it is easy to use, accurate and reliable. However, GPS signals can be compromised by both natural and human sources. If that happens it can lead to inaccurate data or complete loss of GPS signal. In some locations, the availability and quality of GPS signals can cause issues. Errors can also be expected when the chip signals hit structures as a result of the children’s playing.

 Aim and Objectives:

The aim of this project is to design and implement of school children tracking system
The objectives of this project are:

  • To get the real time school children tracker through smart
  • To provide the interfaces with the peripherals to collect the data (location and speed) and implement data communications to send that data to the MCS.
  • To view the data collected on the School children tracker by using the MCS app on an Android



The GPS Module will be used to receive the coordinates of the children from the satellites among other critical information, and then send location and speed to the LinkIt-ONE board. The speed will be calculated using GPS from coordinates of two points. The Link-It ONE development board will be used to process the received data from the GPS module and send the information to the GSM modem. The GSM/GPRS module or Wi-Fi antenna will be used to transmit the updated device database to the server, and the user access the database using MCS application on the smart phone. The Android application (MCS) on smart phone will provide the exact location and speed of target.

Organization of the Study

Chapter Two is a theoretical background and related works in a field of school children tracking system using android.
Chapter Three describes steps of hardware design the school children tracker and how to view it in a software application.
Chapter Four discusses the results of simulation and implementation for the project.
Chapter Five explain the conclusion and the future ideas that can be performed.
