Development of Auto-Notification Application for Mobile Device using Geofencing Technique
Keywords:Auto-notification, Geofencing, Mobile device, Windows Phone.
AbstractMobile devices have become an integral part of human lifestyle. The convenience offered by mobile devices usage can’t be denied. However, there are growing concerns about the disturbances caused by usage of mobile devices. One of the concerns is the disturbances caused by ringing sound of mobile devices at places that require silence such as mosque, library, cinema, and meeting room. Mobile device owners often forget to turn on silence mode on their devices in these places. To overcome such problem, this paper proposes an auto-notification application for mobile device using geofencing technique. Geofencing technique is used to detect virtual boundary that have been preset around required places. When a user enters the particular place, the application will detect that the user’s mobile device has crossed the virtual boundary and will automatically notify the user to turn the silence mode on the device. The opposite process will happen when the user crosses the boundary to exit the place. The main advantage of the application is that it will remind mobile device users to mute their devices when they are entering places that require silence
