December 2006 Archives

December 16, 2006

Finally, after what seems forever working on other peoples projects I get a chance to progress some of my own work.

Some more defintion added to "Wheres Neil?", along with a bit of Perl and MySQL Database backend, which is not particularly functional yet but it's going in the right direction. Connecting the two seems remarkably easy, I must have overlooked something. Performance I'm guessing, but that is hardly likely to be an issue for a while.

First end to end for 'Wheres Neil?'

I've just run the first end-to-end using a real phone/gps setup - you can see the results at the bottom of the Location Log, the emulator is, I think, using locations in Finland while the real unit uses real coordinates, which are where I am in Surrey at the moment.

This clearly needs a lot more work, but the principle is clear now. Its just a question of adding a bit of icing around the edges and making it all look pretty.

Still to do before its a vaguely usable system:
- use a real journey id, its hard coded to use '7' at the moment which is unsatisfactory
- add some better management interface
- security
- battery life, it'll be a killer at the moment
