Khoji - Location tracking and visualization using Augmented Reality
An android app, that tracks the location of a user and updates it in the Firebase Database. As soon as the location of the user gets updated, this update is reflected down to all the contacts of that user so they are able to see where that person is at the moment.
We use Augmented Reality, using ARCore, to visualize the location markers of the users so it is easier for them to locate their contacts.
We have also included Real-time chat, as well as integrated a chat-bot into the application.
