  • 3. Mobile Devices Data Transfer Dotnet
    My skills are in VB. Net/SQL Server and i have touched on PDA development mainly as a tester. i am aware of using webservices for functionality. I have been given a task to develop a solution which enables users of handheld devices to go out to various sites and record information and send the information back to a head office from site for processing. Does anyone have any ideas or could give me any help regarding best methods of connectivity and transferring of data. costs/speed etc.... My basic plan is to use a handheld device with some type of connectivity (some people have mentioned GPRS but i dont have a clue)technology to access web services on a server and then transfer data using an XML dataset. Do i need sql server on the handheld device ??? does anyone have any helpful hints on how to connect to the webservices, where the webservices should be located as i dont know much about this aspect. Are thet located on a webserver hosted by a 3rd party or do i have my own server back at the main office. any help greatly appreciated Regards CG

Polaris - Low Cost GPS Tracking System
CloserWorlds introduces Polaris, a low cost product / service for
tracking an object's physical location in real-time over the Internet
and displaying its position on a geographical map. Polaris can be used
to track vehicles on the road, ships, planes, trains, humans and even
animals. It is a generic system that consists of an XML web service
and software running on a client's computer.

Hardware located on the tracked object transmits the location
periodically to the web service which forwards it to the customer's
machine. CloserWorlds offers a complete vehicle tracking system built
on Polaris providing the lowest cost tracking on the market for
companies who want an entry-level product without investing much money

Polaris is built using Microsoft .NET technology and can be customized
by any programmer to meet special business requirements. Polaris was
entirely developed in C#. The client software ships with support for
Microsoft MapPoint and OziExplorer but can be programmed to interface
with any mapping software or business application. Multiple vehicles
(or any object) can be displayed on multiple maps simultaneously.
Polaris is also designed to work with any hardware device since it
contains no proprietary interfaces to any specific hardware.
Dates/times are stored in UTC format (Universal Time Coordinate) and
textual data can be stored in multiple languages.

The Polaris web service costs a minimum of $15 a month which
guarantees tracking a single vehicle every 15 minutes, 8 hours a day,
6 days a week.
For more information on Polaris, see www.closerworlds.com, or call +49
711 838 5038 (Germany).

CloserWorlds is also looking for distributors worldwide. Contact
CloserWorlds if you are interested in selling and providing product
support in your country.
