Abstract

We present a mobile public transportation guide application called KAMO, which offers journey planning and stop-specific timetable information for public transportation passengers. Passengers can also pay for their fare using the application; travel news concerning current problems or changes to the public transport are also available via the KAMO application. We describe the KAMO service architecture, compare it with related work, and illustrate a typical application scenario from the user's point of view. Our work takes steps forward in combining journey planning and the real-time positioning-based monitoring of the buses in the same application and advancing the application's usability of the by utilising the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. We summarise initial user trial results, which demonstrate that NFC can be used with public transportation services. Based on the user trial results and our own experience, we present the future development directions for KAMO.
