Crowd GPS is a great alternative to traditional GPS and enhances the possibilities of what can be tracked.
Unlike traditional GPS, Crowd GPS uses the power of the existing cell phones all around us to help locate lost items.
The technology works by having the Traxafe device broadcast a unique UID over Bluetooth Low Energy when lost. Other users' phones from anywhere around the world can detect this wireless signal in the background (without the user being aware). When the signal is detected, the phone saves the current GPS location, sends a message to the Traxafe cloud server, and the server will then send it to the owner. It's a revolutionary way that Traxafe is enabling you to automatically keep track of the location of all your items effortlessly.
