Part I: Today’s Technology > Tracking the Kids: Wherify GPS Personal Locator

Chapter 18. Tracking the Kids: Wherify GPS Personal Locator

Have you ever wanted a way to track your kids? A LoJack for kids perhaps? Well, this very type of device is on the market today. Wherify Wireless makes a GPS personal locator for children that is a wearable tracking device (Figure 18-1; Plate 12). Kids wear the device around their wrists, like a wristwatch, and parents can track them by either calling a telephone number or using the Internet. The locator relies on GPS technology for position determination plus a wireless network for transmission of that location information to the Wherify location service center. Beyond being a locator, the device also functions as a pager and a watch. The device is designed for children who are four to twelve years old and comes in two colors and two wrist sizes.
