• Android Based Inventory Locator, (ABIL), is a system based on an Android application that assists in tracking and locating inventory.  Users input the locations of various parts and products into the application.  The application helps its user find inventory by giving the location of the desired part or product (for example, its row and column numbers if located in an array of drawers).  The application is able to display a map of the item’s location in order to help the user locate the item.  Additionally, the location of the inventory alerts the user to its presence (for example, by a light).  The application achieves this by wirelessly interfacing to an Arduino microcontroller that controls the alerts.
