Abstract


A cost-effective smart team management system using iOS devices as iBeacon for better task monitoring and presence detection is proposed in this work. It is designed to maximum utilize the proximity information offered by iOS devices through iBeacon integration. In addition to this positioning service, iOS core location framework, geofencing and push notifications features are also included in this work, to create a productive environment in an organization. Along with the employee tracking and task monitoring features, the proposed application provides the typical project management services like task allocation and notification, instant chat, status report, and employee log. On entering the iBeacon range, daily task details and announcements from all associated teams will be available in team member devices. The system is connected to a server for productive team management, and peer to peer communication is utilized for instant exchange of information. An experimental evaluation to study the effect of interference, obstacles, and measured power on received signal strength and accuracy of the proposed iBeacon is also conducted. The observed results positively recommend the proposed app as an efficient iBeacon application for project management.
