Overview

The taxi locator consits of two apps and a web backend. 

Taxi app - This app will be used by all the taxi drivers who will send their location to the web backend perodically (35 seconds). The taxi app gets the taxis location via GPS.

Web backend - This is a website used as an intimidatory for the apps to communicate. Once the taxis start sending their location perodically the website stores the taxi information in a database. When a user requests to see the closest taxis the web backend selects all the taxis in the database and caluclates the closest taxis to the tourist information centre. Once the web backend has calculated the closest taxis it will then store these locations in a JSON file which will then be downloaded by the user.

User app - This app will be used by the user to request the closest taxis to the tourist information centre. To request the taxis the user app calls on the website which will then return a JSON file containing the closest taxis. Once the user has recived the JSON file it parses it to get all the taxi co-ordinates. Once the app has parsed the co-ordinates it will then map the closest taxis to the tourist information centre. The app will do this process every 45 seconds.

Fingal Day Tripper

Submitted by David McNamara last modified Thu, 22 Mar 2012 11:39:37 GMT.

It is common for families to take a day trip on the weekend to local attractions such as beaches, parks, castles and other amenities. This can, however, be a stressful time for the parents, due to having to organise the children, lunches, equipment, etc. A further headache is having to organise driving directions for the day, especially if the trip is to a new location.
