Cloud service for tracking handheld devices

The objective of this project was to prevent the Loss (Shrinkage) of Android devices. Devices rented to customers were at times left unattended, and few of them could not be recovered.

An Android Application ran an algorithm to ‘predict’ whether a device was lost using data collected from various sensors (accelerometer, Wi-fi) and the battery. It would be possible to make the device beep if it was felt with reasonable confidence that the device was lost.

The Spring Boot based solution was architected, implemented and deployed by Alumnus on the Google Cloud Platform(GCP) to collect real-time status data from all Devices and transfer it reliably and securely to the cloud. The solution also reports a device-status dashboards to the clients.
