Abstract

Due to the coming of an aged society, homecare service becomes more and more important. For providing the elderly better living quality and peaceful living space, this study utilizes Android smartphone platform to develop a mobile position and care app combining with function of SMS and GPS. This application switches the mobile to the silent mode and sends the preset message to the caller when the elderly do not want to be disturbed or unavailable. Meanwhile, the application can utilize SMS to trigger GPS positioning function, notifying the families the location of the user, effectively preventing the elderly from getting lost.
