A team of four Emirati girl students of the Secondary School of Applied Technology in Abu Dhabi invented a smart device which can be connected to a phone application designed to track and search for lost items via Bluetooth, which helps people find their lost items such as jewellery boxes, computers or any valuable items. When finding a lost item, it releases a light and sound alarm.
The work team – Al Anoud Al Amiri, Aisha Zakaria, Amal Shahla, and Amal Al Nawfali – explained that the device is a small chip which has a tracking feature through the mobile application designated for it, depending on the GPS for tracking and finding lost items.
Al Anoud Al Amri said, “When the application connects with the device via Bluetooth, information and data are received from the GPS chip which appears through the application, where it can be placed or pasted with valuables and collectibles to locate them. The application also includes the feature of saving the current location of the device as well as showing movement from one place to another.”
Al Amri also indicated that the device includes a new feature, which is to emit a light and an audio alarm in the event the user, the holder of the application, approaches the device. For example, if the device is attached to something valuable and the application shows that it is in the room but is under the bed or covered with clothes so it cannot be seen, then the feature enables to find it immediately. Al Amiri noted that the application, using Bluetooth technology, monitors the location of the missing thing within a range of 15 to 30 metres, pointing out that if someone removes the device from things, the application monitors the last location of the device, and users can control its settings to obtain a notification alert that the thing they had put the cards on went out of the phone’s detection range.
