Mobile Phone Tracking

Nowadays, mobile is becoming a very important commodity of a person. Today, mobile is a basic necessity for everyone and it is not a luxurious commodity. The proposed Mobile Tracking system is based on PHP and J2ME. By using mobile tracking system, we can track the current location of a mobile. This system is connected with central tower and it will track the location of the mobile in just 5 seconds. We can use this Mobile Tracking application in the mobile phone which supports Symbian operating system.

This system will transfer the following information to the server:

1. Mobile’s Current location

2. Mobile ID

3. Time at which the mobile was present on the current location

By providing the location, the users of this mobile application can get the shop details of the location. This application will fetch the information of the shop in that particular location and then shows the details of shop on the mobile screen. We created an application in the proposed system and by using this application, we can track the movement of the mobile phone of the specific user. Each mobile phone will have its own unique ID. By using this ID we can recognize a mobile phone and can track that mobile phone at any place, any time.

We developed this web application by using PHP and MySQL. MySQL is used for database storage. This application will serve as the Admin panel. By using his credentials, admin can log in to this application.

The functionality of the admin are given below:

  • Modify and delete the shop details
  • Adding new shop details
  • Providing the history of the mobile phone by tracking the time and the location

Two major components of this system are:

  1. Web application, which serve as the Admin Panel
  2. Mobile Tracking Software- it is installed in the device

Two users of this application are given below:

1. Admin

2. Mobiles users
