    We propose a GPS independent, long range, power efficient, scalable, robust and cost-efficient Tracking system using LoRa technology. This tracking system will be designed without aid of GPS.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    with unavailability of GPS People can still able to perform object tracking using this system. GPS does not work accurately in indoor environment and underwater but this tracking system will work everywhere in every situation.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People who don't have GPS access due to some circumstances, they can use it in every scenario even indoor and underwater. Specially this would be beneficial for Navy (Underwater usage).
How will the solution works
    The proposed tracking system will work on the phenomenon of trilateration. The node (object) will send RSSI values to three gateways. The gateways will convert these RSSI values into distance between node and that gateway. Then all the three the gateways will draw circles equal to radius of the calculated distance. These three circles will meet at a point. This point will be our located node (object to be track).
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Some companies are providing tracking solution using different technologies, but our solution will better from them in terms of range, power efficiency, scalability, robustness and cost.
