Inoue, H., Kaji, K., A Smartphone Application that Automatically Provides Arrival Time based on Estimation of Train on Board, International Conference on Mobile Computing and Ubiquitous Networking(ICMU2019), 2019.
There are passengers who to ride on the train in a harry. They may not know the arrival time to the destination. Therefore, the arrival time of their target station is essential information for them. To acquire the information by using currently available application, it is necessary to search or input their train on board. Therefore, the arrival time is display on a smartphone by a passenger. Moreover, a passenger does not need to operate the smartphone. A passenger can get the arrival time of a train and train information such as train type and train destination. This system estimates the train on which the passenger is riding by using current location information from the passenger’s smartphone. This system processes train route estimation function and train direction estimation function before train estimation function. There is a system can display simply arrival time at local train. However, this system can display arrival time information of superior train. Also, this system displays arrival time information of adjacent route when running on a parallel route section. We examined whether arrival time information of adjacent route was displayed correctly. We confirmed that there are sections that are displayed correctly and sections that are displayed incorrectly.
