Challenges

Real Time GPS Positioning – The app is a GPS based app where the tracking of the passenger is done in real time. Getting the updated location of passengers, even at places where network availability can be inconsistent was a challenge.

Drawable Map Views – To provide location details of service like Fuel Stations, Banks, Restaurants, Hospitals etc. around a particular radius, an accurate map has to be drawn near to user location. Since the commercial navigation system had an inaccuracy in providing data, it was a challenge to provide accurate map navigation.
