Name: 
Optimised Transport System for Mobile Location-Based Services
Acronym: 
OPTI-TRANS

The OPTI-TRANS project aims to create a Mobile GNSS platform which will provide commuters/travellers with the ability to plan their trip in an efficient manner in order to utilise and share a combination of public/private transportation by combining information from various public transport authorities and other private vehicle owners. It will display to the commuters the optimum router/transport combinations for their trips, based on their location. OPTI-TRANS will interface with existing database systems providing public transport information (timetables, routes, etc.) to give the most optimal multi-model solutions for the commuters' requirements. It will incorporate Transport-on-Demand (ToD) through the Car Pooling services and Passenger-on-the-Curb facilities that allow privately owned vehicles to be shared with others subscribed to the service. The OPTI-TRANS system will not only provide the means to investigate the feasibility of a dynamically updated, location-aware pedestrian and public transport navigation tool, but will offer these services as an end product. This will be made possible by the development of both the OPTI-TRANS platform and the OPTI-TRANS GNSS-enabled mobile application.
