Anticipated Calendar Meeting Alarm Location Based

A person often has multiple meetings and appointments throughout the day . When a person has two consecutive meetings, a problem can occur if the meeting locations are some distance apart. If the person does not have enough time to move from the first location to the second before the second meeting begins, then the meeting might begin late, waste the time of other attendees, etc.

A method is needed to improve and control the user's arrival at a meeting location.

The novel contribution is a system and mechanism to automatically interpret and analyze the time required to move between meeting locations and alert the user to the time needed, thereby improving the arrival times. The solution uses an intelligent system to calculate the amount of time a user needs to move from the current location to the next meeting location . The system uses global positioning system (GPS) data, maps, and/or Wi-Fi nodes analysis. The system provides alerts to the user to prevent late arrival to meetings.

Cognitive technologies calculate the user's travel speed (e.g., walking, driving, etc.) based on historical data. If the electronic calendar entries include meeting location information, then the GPS/maps tool can make connections between the user's calendar/agenda, determine the user's rate of speed, and then the system can calculate the relocation time. The system provides the informative alarm, so the user can take appropriate act...
