UofC Roomfinder - an on-campus navigation system with mixed reality approach

This is a completed project.


This project focuses on creating the concept and implementing a prototype which realizes an on-campus navigation system for the UofC.

The mobile application should help students, university staff and vistors to orientate themselves on the campus and support them finding their target destination. In addition to the navigation feature users can switch to an augmented reality view which shows them nearby points of interest or different kinds of social notes (like georeferenced comments or the location of friends).
