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

    • Add current report logs to master log
  • Android and Web User

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
