Title (EN) AUTOMATIC FRIEND FOLLOWING APPLICATION
(FR) APPLICATION DE SUIVI D'AMI AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Two friends can pair wireless communication devices which subsequently exchange positional information peer-to-peer or through a cloud server. Each device presents a map showing its location and the location of the paired device. Instructions can be provided to the device playing a follower role of how to reach the current location of the other device, which plays a leader role. In turn the leader device can present information as to the location of the follower device so that a user of the leader device can ascertain if the follower is off-track.
(FR)Deux amis peuvent appairer des dispositifs de communication sans fil qui, par la suite, pourront échanger des informations de position de pair à pair ou via un serveur en nuage. Chaque dispositif présente une carte qui montre sa position ainsi que celle du dispositif appairé. Des instructions peuvent être fournies au dispositif qui joue le rôle de suiveur afin de lui indiquer comment atteindre la position actuelle de l'autre dispositif qui joue le rôle de leader. A son tour, le dispositif leader peut présenter des informations relatives à la position du dispositif suiveur. De cette manière, un utilisateur du dispositif leader est apte à vérifier si le dispositif suiveur est sur la bonne voie, ou non.
