Background
Background

  • PRT system is unpredictable regarding failure

  • University only reports outages lasting longer than thirty minutes

  • No interface exists to combine information regarding the operating status of the PRT and bus systems

  • With smartphones becoming more and more prevalent, there exists a need to develop an Android application to address the above issues


Problem statement
Problem Statement

  • Create Android application and website to provide users with real-time information regarding the operating status of the bus and PRT systems at WVU

  • Provide a customizable notification system through either SMS or email

  • Track locations of individual PRT cars via RF transmitters or phone tracking

  • Provide a route optimizer

  • App will utilize crowdsourcing

    • Crowdsourcing – a technique which allows users of the software to provide the majority of the information





Basic user functions
Basic User Functions

  • Administrator

    • Add current report logs to master log

  • Android and Web User

    • View the current operating status of the bus and PRT systems

    • Utilize route optimizer feature

    • Request / receive notifications

  • Android User

    • Send PRT operating status reports to the server to provide other users with updates.



Technologies used
Technologies Used

  • Android App

    • Java, XML, SQL, Google Maps

  • Webpage

    • HTML, CSS, SQL, PHP


Challenges uncertainties
Challenges / Uncertainties

  • Relying on users to report the status of PRT accurately and reliably

    • Limit the number of reports users can send per hour

    • Require users to be located in the general vicinity of Morgantown to send a report

  • Getting users to actively participate in reporting the status of the PRT

  • Developing app to function properly with different devices (screen size & density) and versions of Android


Expected outcome
Expected Outcome

  • Produce multiple prototypes, each adding additional functionality

  • Produce and publish a final application to the Android Marketplace which fulfills the specified objectives and requirements

  • Construct a webpage to provide users without a smartphone the same functionality as users of the app with the exception of reporting the operating status



Progress so far
Progress So Far

  • Initial app prototype completed mid October

  • Website completed with links to all documents as well as prototype
