The employee mobile application connects to Amazon Location’s Tracker via the Amazon Location SDK, once the latitude and longitude provided by the tracker crosses a geofence, an event is sent to EventBridge and a Lambda Function is triggered. This Lambda function updates DynamoDB via AppSync with the user’s information, marking them as safe or not. Another app, targeting the patrol officers, track the users and their safety status. Both mobile applications rely on Cognito for authentication and authorization. AWS Amplify is used by the mobile app to connect to Cognito, via Amplify Auth, and AppSync, via Amplify API and Amplify DataStore.
