Abstract

Nowadays, many people do not know where to go to relax or to have a meal in their leisure time, do not know how to reach the destination place, or do not know how to manage budget when they attend a group trip. Moreover, smartphones with location-sensitive sensors are becoming more and more popular. Pai-di is an android application developed to solve those problems by adopting the concept of intelligent travel assistant system (itas). It provides location-based services such as showing points-of-interest on the map which contains many places. Points-of-interest can be filtered by many categories (restaurants, shopping malls, etc.) Based on user’s current location, place details, shop promotions, current traffic status, place searching, trip and budget management. Pai-di also gives user a driving direction to any place they want. The pai-di application is developed in java on android platform and it makes use of many technologies such as gps sensor for user location retrieval, google maps api for map and traffic status display. To support pai-di application, php and mysql are used to develop a web application for managing the places and promotions. Future works are such as integrating a speech recognition system to receive voice commands from the user and adding a for user to submit point of interests (pois) via mobile phone. Thus, as a mix of fine-grained location searching, map exploring, travel management tools, and promotion channel, pai-di is one of the best android applications which can help user who loves travelling.
