MapSafety is a Telegram bot that prioritizes your safety during cab rides. It constantly monitors your live location and promptly notifies your family with emergency alerts if the cab deviates from the intended route. Stay protected and connected, ensuring peace of mind on every journey
Due to our limited experience in creating React Native apps, we encountered numerous errors while attempting to implement live location capture. This led us to explore a simpler and more user-friendly alternative: Telegram bots.
During the initial stages of developing the solution, we encountered challenges with integrating the Google Maps API. The requirement of entering credit card details added to the difficulty. Nevertheless, we successfully overcame these obstacles by seeking assistance from Stack Overflow and multiple YouTube tutorials, allowing us to generate the necessary API tokens.
Due to time constraints, we were unable to implement account creation and data management for close members in the bot. However, to address this limitation, we have included a request in the start menu asking users to mention their unique numbers, ensuring that activities remain securely isolated and undisclosed to others.
