The challenge is to track the exact location of tourists and their trip activity. Here tourists and tour guides can do live chatting. It also contains other roles such as admin and recruiter. The current location of tourist is shared with their family and friends. Integrating the “Stripe” for the trip payment was a tricky part along with the auto refresh functionality.
For getting the tourist’s and the guide’s location, we integrated the Google navigation geolocation (GPS) service. We also integrated the application with the Stripe API for payment gateway which mainly records the user’s card transactions and calculate fare charges with respect to different roles like admin fare, tour guide fare and recruiter fare. We also used socket programming to implement the auto refresh functionality.
