Our handsets travel with us wherever we go and are already invaluable aids when travelling. So what are the emerging opportunities to significantly improve our travel experiences through our devices? Can our devices become smart travel assistants to help us get around and find our destinations more easily? And how can other mobile device types and systems help ease our transportation problems?
In this SIG event we are looking at the key device-side technology enablers needed to make smarter journeys a reality. What are the technology issues and challenges which need to be overcome to enable the next generation transportation experience to happen? Topics covered include indoor location tracking, low power always-on contextual sensing and positioning, digital augmentation of the physical world and machine learning approaches for intelligent assistants.
