Abstract [en]

Global positioning systems have been having an increasing interest recently and been integrated and used in many applications to service positioning, navigation and travel planning. This project has set to design and test an interface of a travel planner for cell phones. A pre-study was made to investigate other travel planners to help the design of this application that has targeted a user friendly interface that people can use regardless of their background. A special feature, carpooling, has been introduced to ease the environmental, economical, and social aspects of navigation. The test was done as walk-through mockup images case scenarios. The test subjects were pleased with the interface’s friendliness, invoked carpooling issues, presented contradictory opinions regarding the interface's design, and offered future integration with other applications suggestions all of which were discussed. Overall, the test results were positive and few problems with the overall design were identified. A future study with more participants and a deeper analysis of the interface would be one way to further investigate the proposed interface.
