Abstract: In this paper, we describe a Pilgrim tracking system. It is a distributed system that is composed of several components. The system is divided into two parts: The network infrastructure part and the application part. The focus of this paper is on the application part where the design and the architecture are highlighted. The proposed system is intended to make it possible: to collect the exact statistics of the pilgrims and the manner they are dispersed, to provide for locating lost or disoriented pilgrims, to help perform quick re-location of pilgrims, and to assist the pilgrims to locate their family members and helping units. It maintains various databases that dynamically interact to keep track of the desired data. The system has been fully implemented supporting a universal interface to make it possible to communicate with other pertinent systems that respect standard communication protocol.
