A Precision Navigation System for Public Transit Users
In this paper, we propose a context aware navigation for public transportation users. In the travel with public transportation, a user needs to switch several modality of moving such as walking, waiting at the station, and riding a vehicle. We developed a navigation system that automatically detect user’s state how he/she is using public transportation, and then provide suitable information for each state. We developed the system as an Android application, and demonstrate its basic functionality in the field experiment with five examinees.
