A context-aware mobile bus application
AuthorHansen, Christer Andre
Accessing route information should be easy. Today, most collective transport companies distribute timeta- bles online as electronic documents and in paper format. These solutions are outdated and cumbersome to use. However, systems have been built to make the task of finding route information easy, and to replace these formats. Most of these systems, still, have limitations. They rely on users knowing the name of the bus stops, and the destination is left out when finding information. In this thesis we present a system that is able to find travel alternatives based on two parameters, the user’s current location and the destination. Successful tests and experiments have proved that our system can be useful for people that does not know the following; the name of the bus stops, where the bus stops are located, what route to use, and where to get of the bus. We also suggest an architecture where our system is integrated as part of a personal cloud.
