IMAGINEERING FOR GOOGLE – FUTURE PROJECTS
Till now we have been looking at what Google has done new. All of us wish well for Google and it will continue to be a Great organization. What is required is an extra dose of innovative ideas on which it can work. As what can be better than the society giving it ideas on which it can work on to benefit mankind. Here is one such idea.
Let us christen it as the “ Google Human Tracker”. Some of the FAQs that would emerge on this topic have been addressed below:-
Q1. What would this application do ?
A1. Allow others to track your physical coordinates .
Q2. Who would love to use this ?
A2. So many users would like this idea. Some of them are:
Mothers who want to keep an eye on their children.
Police who would like to track criminals.
Companies who would like to monitor the movement of its sales force.
Intelligence agencies of various nations who would want to keep a tab of its spies in other countries with a view to monitor their safety .
Armies of the worlds who would want to find out soldiers who have been lost on sea or land.
And many others that others can think of (Please do post it on this blog).
Just imagine the world of applications that it can open up. Wow! Is the word.
Q3. How would it work ?
A3. Every person , say A, who would agree to allow himself to be tracked by another one, say B, would have to exchange a unique password. When ever B would like to find out where A is, B will type out the unique pass word which has been given to him by A. The request will flow from the internet into the telephony data base. The mobile phone of person A will catch the signal from his mobile and will relay it to B.
Q4. What is the difference between Google Latitude and the proposed Google Human Tracker ?
A4. The Google Human Tracker is an upgrade to Google Latitude. In the Google Latitude, A necessarily has to accept the invitation of B in case A wishes to allow B to know of his/her physical coordinates. Whereas, in the Human Tracker, A would be completely online for viewing by B without A getting to know of it.
Q4. Is it not an invasion of personal privacy ?
A4. Yes it would provided one does not trust the other. But in this case it would not be applicable as A would have already agreed to allow and B to be in know of his/her coordinates at any point of time.
Q5. What are the security features ?
Each individual will have a unique password which would be completely encrypted using Blowfish or another encryption.
Q6. What’s so unique?
In our application, even if your phone gets lost, you will be able to track it just by entering your unique password. Whereas in Google Latitude, you need to accept the invitation of the user of the phone from which you send an invitation.
Ofcourse the person who has pinched your phone would not accept your invitation.
