ABSTRACT

Mobile phones are nowadays, far more than merely communication devices. In particular, Smartphones  and Tablets are  products  that  help  to  make  our  works  and  everyday  life  easier.  Along  with  the advance  in  technology  and  popularity  of  these  devices,  the  use  of  mobile  applications  increased enormously  in  the  last   few years.  Based  on  new  techniques  like  Global Positioning System (GPS)  and  sensors,  like  compass  and accelerometer, that can determine the orientation of the device, location-based applications coupled with augmented reality views are possible. In the context of this project, a navigation system that incorporates mobile application for Tai Solarin University of Education is developed. The system architecture and design were presented. The technologies used for the implementation of the application include Google Map API, HTML, Android development kit and Intel XDK. The resulting application enables the user to find paths to specific locations and provide location-based information on buildings, road and other facilities in the campus. This application developed offers visitors the ability to explore university campus facilities via mobile devices
