Dejan Dakić (2011) Mobile application to monitor timetables and delays for city bus network and railways. EngD thesis.
As a regular public transportation user I had several problems with timetables since the available data on public transport is still not sufficiently ordered and accessible. Associated with the rise of mobile technologies is the increasing number of smart phone users. With the development of mobile technologies, the access to the world wide web and web applications has become much easier. I have decided to develop a mobile application for smart phones that enables users to more easily get the accurate up-to-date information on the public transportation. To minimize the amount of transferred data and to allow the application to be seamlessly updated in case of any source data format changes, I have chosen to separate the solution to client and server parts. The server part is created in a way that allows it to be used by other mobile platforms, such as Windows Mobile, Windows Phone, Android and others. The application allows quick and simple view of the information regarding public railway and Ljubljana bus transport. By facilitating the use of the GPS system, it provides the user with access to the list and directions of the geographically closest stations in both graphical and text modes. The application is intuitively designed and simple to use. It is being used daily by approximately twenty users.
