  • Info: Development of crowdsourcing technologies for geo-social networking and advanced satellite navigation in real-time, Funded by EPAnEK - EDK (2018 - 2021)
  • Duration: 24 months (7/2018 - 6/2020)
  • Scientific Responsible: Nick Bassiliades
  • Category: National Projects

This project aims to develop innovative technologies for the geo-sensitive social networking of people who use navigation devices and for the exchange of additional real-time navigation information to improve vehicular navigation. The system will operate based on SBOING's existing navigator, sbNavi™, and complementary to the offline routing and navigation functionality sbNavi™ provides to date, adding new functionality and providing the following new services:

  • Geo-sensitive social networking of users.
  • Real-time navigation information contributed by the users themselves.
  • Updating in real time the users of the navigator for the current traffic conditions in their area.
  • Support for additional information interfaces.
