We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Hi, I'm new to the forum and need some direction please.
I have chosen to create an indoor navigation app for my final year university project. After much discussion with my tutor, we have identified Processing v3.2.3 as the software most suited for the job. The challenge is for the app to read data from RFID tags containing co-ordinates that represent locations in a hospital. The idea is to translate those co-ordinates to the different departments and indicate whereabouts in the hospital you are located - like a navigation system to help you get around the hospital.
Assuming I have the RFID tags containing the locations and co-ordinates I will require the code which picks up the location then places a marker on a simple map/plan of the hospital and therefore I will also need the code that interacts with the plan image.
I have successfully created a Processing sketch which picks up map co-ordinates from GPS however I will need the Android device to pick up data from RFIDs which are strategically placed around the corridors of the hospital and once the co-ordinates have been converted into locations then this location needs to be displayed on the map/plan with a "you are here" type marker.
Can this actually be done? If not I would appreciate any similar idea's that I could implement instead.
If it can be done, any help to set me on my way with the code will be much appreciated.
