Abstract

Recommender systems have typically been used in tourism applications to filter out irrelevant information and to provide personalized recommendations to the users. With the advent of mobile devices and ubiquitous computing, RSs have begun to incorporate Location Based Services (LBS) into mobile tourism guides to provide users with interesting points of interest (POIs) according to their contextual information, mainly physical location. In this paper, we propose a context-aware system for mobile devices that incorporates some implicit contextual information that is scarcely used in the literature: the user’s speed and his trajectory. This system has been specifically crafted to assist travelling users by providing them with smart and personalized POIs along their route taking into account their current location and driving speed.
