Abstract
This research proposed centralize controlling system that can help to track missing pilgrims during Hajj season by using the wide spread GPS, GPRS and Arduino UNO Microcontroller. The system under study is planned to provide the facility to pilgrims, Ministry of Hajj and the law and peace enforcement in tackling with this issue. Similar applications related to this issue were developed and can be divided into two types from the perception of the device used for location determination. Some applications are using handheld Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver and others are using mobile phones with embedded GPS receiver. This paper proposed system that is designed in such a way to deal with both solutions at the same time. This gives more agility to the system to suite diverse user categories in term of age i.e. children, young and old people with some limitations. In the proposed system the location of the pilgrim is sent instantly to the web server in the form of General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) packet through the Global System for Mobile (GSM) network on demand. The system will also provide the facility to keep a check on a missing pilgrim for regular location updates after identifying that particular pilgrim.
