    Android to PC Communication and Vice Versa

    Hi,

    I am working on a project to guide blind students. I am using WiFi Tags and android mobile. WiFi tags are placed on the wall and android is carried by blind student. The student's time table, shortest path algorithm to reach specific lecture hall is loaded onto HOST.
    Whenever android mobiles comes in vicinity of any Wifi tag, it receives the beacons from WiFi Tag. In order to achieve this, android has to scan all the wifi devices every 3 sec(say).So, the android has to forward the WiFi tag id (mac address), android mac id, Received Signal Strength to the HOST. So, how should I do this? What are the different applications to be loaded onto the android mobile? How should the scanning be done?
    Once HOST receives the data from android, it will determine the shortest path in accordance to algorithm and has to send back instruction (say direction - Go Left) to android. So, how can we do this? Since the student is visually impaired, the incoming msg should be audio.
    Please let me know how to achieve this? I am new to android.
    Thanks Shaban

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    I think a good place to start digging will be HERE where the great minds are always at work.

    Why would Android need to scan all devices every 3 sec.(say)?

    Also, you're talking developing an app(or finding one @ Gplay) to do the data conversion to voice. Are you a dev? I'm not. Just asking.

    Android device carried by student has to scan the device periodically. We have defined it as 3 sec.
    WiFi device mounted on the wall, signals beacons periodically. So, android device has to scan and refresh its list of wifi devices periodically as it changes zone timely depending on the mounted WiFi devices. WiFI devices mounted are used to create zones.

    I am not a developer. I am looking for any applications available to convert data to voice. data is from the algorithm written in HOST.
    For example: Depending on the instruction received from the WiFI device, algorithm calculates the shortest path and the result is GO LEFT.
    This "GO LEFT" result has to reach the android as voice msg. How to do it?
