Arduino GPS System? Why do we need one?

It is estimated that 200,000 persons are trafficked in India every year. Only 10% of human trafficking in India is international, while almost 90% is interstate. Nearly 40,000 children are abducted every year of which 11000 remain untraced according to a report by the National Human Rights Commission of India. This is the Statistics by TOI.

Arduino GPS system is built in shoe module which is self powered with a Piezo crystal and powers up the Arduino, GPS and GSM modules. This system can either be done with a Rpi or a Arduino. Feasibility has to be chosen based upon the power requirement.

Material Selection

Materials yet to be decided.

Looking out for Chemical Engineers, Electronics people, Arduino Person, design Engineer

Role for everyone will be as follows:

Chemical Engineers: Testing Piezo crystals to check feasibility of power generation upon pressure.

Electronics person: To design a circuit which is small enough to be accommodated inside a shoe.

Arduino person: To hook up GSM,GPS and MC.

Design Engineer: To make a best suitable sole design to accommodate the product in a sole.

Where I Need the Most Help

Design is not my cup of Tea.Need good passionate Design engineers
Chemical Engineering: Need person to guide me select the rite piezo crystal

Why I’m Passionate About This Project

The answer lies on bring value to the society. I don’t know making this product and launching in market provides a good feel for people but at the end its all about what we do and how much value we can bring to our society.
