Thread Title:
IITians Develop Linux-Based Cell Phone Tracking Software
Thread Description:

Mobiance have developed a system that can track the location of mobile users by SMS - The user gets asked if they want to grant permission for their location to be given to the asker and if so, the asker has a 10-100meter accurate fix on location.

From the CXOToday article threadlinked above:

The tracked mobile user has three options and may give permission for one-time usage or unlimited access. Though the third option allows the tracked mobile user to deny access it will not be a permanent one. The same service can also be accessed through the Internet.

Apart from parents who want to track the movements of their children, the software also helps corporates to track their on-field employees.
