How it works

GPS-tracking scheme

The main O-GPS Center distinction is using smartphones as tracking devices. Specialized trackers cost about $300, whereas simple smartphone with GPS receiver built-in about $100. Thus, the approach reduces the GPS-tracking equipment cost and so makes it more feasible to use by event organizers. As a tradeoff, the tracking accuracy is slightly reduced.

Smartphone requirements

  1. Built-in GPS
  2. OS Android 2.3 or higher

How much it cost?

It depends on your mobile internet plan and on the event duration. For example, in Russia if you pay 1rub per Mb then 2 hour event would cost about 6rub.
