  • Log GPS coordinates to remote server from RR

    Anyone interested to log your GPS coordinates to the remote server from RR?
    View the location of the car in real time from any computer?


    How does it work?
    RR logs current GPS coordinates (longitude, latitude), speed of the car, date and time. If internet connection is unavailable local log is created. Whenever internet connection becomes available RR sends all that information to the remote server.


    Why would you want it to log that information remotely?
    1 If this car being driven by your kids (You can see where the car is and how fast it’s driving).
    2. If this car being driven by spouse you can track where he or she stopped and for how long.
    3. In case the car got stolen, you can easily track it. and contact police. (Very useful to me as my car is on the second place on the HLDI Highest Theft Claim Rate for 2003-2005 model year vehicles list)


    I can display following information on my website in real time:
    1. Full car trip (path on the map)
    2. All long stops (Date and time and how long car was parked at that location, and the address of that location.)
    3. When car reached over speed limit.
    4. Current location of the car, speed and heading.

    All configurable

    Just a little sample



    * I already have this functionality implemented in my version of Road Runner. Also, I’m looking into creating “windows service” for people who are not using RR, and of course logger for the Pocket PC users.

        I already have this functionality in my version of Road Runner.
        Been there done that:
        GPSSecure - XBrady
        WhereIsMyGPS - Leddy
        PurGPSTracker - Purdoom

        I personnaly liked GPSSecure because it would continually log even without internet. Once an internet connection was established it would then update the remote server with all the logs since the last update. GPSSecure would also archive logs for later viewing, as opposed to the current crop of programs which are live only. Too bad, GPSSecure is no longer functional; I think XBrady said something about porting over to handhelds for a commercial application.

              It's a great idea! I'm already changing it in my code Actually I’m already done changing.

              PS. I don’t care about replaying my own trips. Only interested to see where my car is (in real time) while it’s been driven by someone else.

                I think it should always be logging/sending though... in case your car gets stolen ya know.

                        *Bookmarked*

                        Evo,

                        That is awesome!!! Can you elaborate a little more on how you are logging the data and sending it out? (What languages VB, asp, php etc..) Also, how are you displaying the data server side? You mentioned (path on the map). are you plugging it into the GoogleMaps API with JS or something?

                        F'in nice work man

                          Loging using xml webservice (currently aspx C#). Displaing using advanced GoggleMas API on the server side.

                            Here is a little sample of how you can view the real time data from my site. I can display more stuff like: all long stops, how long car was stopped at that location, and the address of that location.
