Alzheimer with GPS tracking

Authors(5) :-Nehanshi Patel, Urvi Rane, Payal Bhaliya, Mrs. Nidhi Shah, Mrs. Kalyani Adwakar

This is a project to help someone with advanced Alzheimer. It is a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit for Alzheimer patients. Alzheimer patients often get lost, or wander off. They forget familiar land marks. It works like this: The patient carries a combination cell phone and GPS unit on a necklace or lag band. When the patient touches the unit, or holds it, it starts giving verbal instructions on how to walk home, repeating as necessary. If the patient is too far from home to walk, it phones home and reports the location of the patient, using street names, as well as latitude and longitude. Note that there are no buttons to push and nothing to look at on the unit. It is activated just by touching it. This is a project to help someone with advanced Alzheimer.
