SAN JOSE, CA, May 20, 2011 /CNW/ - MDC (Mobile Data Corp) announces the
release of a newly revised and upgraded version of its MDC-KidTracker™
software application. This latest Version: 2.0.7 provides better
functionality and ease of use in generating tracking reports and
receiving Alert Notifications.
This upgrade is more robust and consistent in its GPS data provision,
tracking and notification capabilities than previous releases and is
part of MDC's application technology strategy. 2.0.7 tracks where a
BlackBerry® Smartphone has been over a specific time period and gives
the user immediate access to this information through the Member
Section of the MDC website (www.mobiledatacorp.com).
Specifically Version: 2.0.7 has increased accuracy in GPS generated
distance and speed calculations, in order to ensure the data provided
by the device is as specific as possible. The application is also
equipped with an auto restart function should a GPS signal be lost due
various environmental considerations, such as inclement weather or
continuous entering and exiting of concrete buildings. A signal may
also be lost should the device travel to remote areas where there is no
accessible cellular service and global positioning satellites are not
in range; in this event the last reported position indicates when and
at what time the device exited the service area. With auto restart, the
device will begin functioning again once is re-enters a service area.
The MDC-KidTracker™ was envisioned and developed initially as an
application to provide parents with a greater sense of security
concerning the daily movement and whereabouts of their children. The
ability to know where a child is at any given time is invaluable
information should that child go missing or travels to a place they
should not be. Parents can then take the appropriate steps to contact
the child and rectify any potential concern.
In the unlikely case of an abduction, the data points provided by the
device that is with the child can have a substantial impact in efforts
by law enforcement to find the child. Even if the device has been
discarded in such an instance, the path of reported locations and the
last known signal could be critical in the successful recovery of the
MDC has received inquiries from the corporate sector regarding the
application and its potential use in tracking physical corporate
assets, including employees. Companies are primarily concerned with
their workers' safety, however, the application can also provide
information that can be evaluated for employee productivity and
