Method And System For Monitoring Travel Parameters And Notifying Users For Planning Their Travel

Disclosed is a method and system for monitoring travel parameters and notifying users for planning their travel. The system constantly monitors conditions or parameters that affect the travel of the user and notifies when the user must leave in order to reach the destination on time. The user may initially input information about their travel including destination, desired arrival time, and some parameters regarding the mode of transportation. The system monitors the information that the user may need for travelling to their destination and predict when they should depart. If the current time is at or near the desired arrival time minus the calculated travel time, a notification alarm is sent to the user to indicate that user should depart. The notification alarm may be sent to a mobile device of the user. In an embodiment, the system may be employed in a cloud service environment rather than in a mobile device so as to conserve battery power on the mobile device, and enable the mobile device to perform other tasks.

In an exemplary embodiment, the system may be implemented using the technologies known in the art such as GPS, telephone networks, and text messaging. In another embodiment, the system may be implemented on a cloud service environment where the route calculations may be performed in the cloud. The route calculations may include functions such as, continua...
