About one in three Norwegian households own at least one pet. Up until recently, there were no good solutions for keeping track of pets that could go missing. To help pet owners safeguard their pets, we wanted to develop a system for easily tracking them. Our goal was to develop an Android application that displayed pet location data. The data would come from a tracker on the pet, and saved to a remote server. Development of this system has led to a system that offers security, safety and awareness surrounding pet movement and well-being. The system comprises of an Arduino tracker device, a backend REST service and a frontend Android application. Security has been paramount in this project, and most recent development practices has been implemented to retain satisfactory information security. The process of creating this system have been a steep learning curve. The team has invested significant effort in creating a system which is both scalable and modular, in compliance with privacy and security principles.
