The quality of life and function are enhanced with the superior technologies integrated and applied to meet the demands of daily life, achieving lower social costs and ensuring the well-being of the social public. Furthermore, to achieve the goals of enhancing the leisure industry and extending parenting education, so as to facilitate users’ physical and mental health, broaden their horizons toward quality life, enhance their cultural standing, and enable them to appropriately stretch outwards in a safe and secure setting, in this paper, the single-chip microcontroller with integrated control of radio frequency identification was combined with the global GPS system, the USB pedometer, and the Bluetooth wireless sensory technology and applied in tourist rolls and the basic physical and mental health care system in travel. Through the technological integration, the wireless sensor Bluetooth device featuring node transfer function and near field communication (NFC) application sends information of the tourist reaching the designated position and corresponding activity range data to the handheld platform of the main controller (leader) inquiring about the personal health information of the user (tourist), thereby enhancing the security of group activities and even allowing the leader to grasp and offer prompt assistance to the tourist should any accident take place.
