Where R U?
Where R U is a project that will make it possible for person 1 to send an SMS to person 2, and then receive an MMS with a map containing the whereabouts of person 2.
An application like Where R U can be used on several occasions. If you are to meet another person somewhere you have never been before, you might use Where R U to get the other person to send you a map of where he/she is. It might also be used in a more serious situation where a person is lost, and need to send information on where he/she is to others.
Some parts of Where R U can be used in other applications related to for example search and rescue. The part that connects to the GPS and sends a request to a mapservice to receive mapdata can also be used by other applications.
