PlaSMoNa: Platform for the standardized combination of web 2.0 technologies, navigation and smart phones for social applications

Projekt PlasMoNa_Navigation

The working group Computer Graphics in the Institute of Visual Computing has a new research project: PlaSMoNa (platform for social mobile navigation).

The project team will research the combination of currently successful web 2.0 applications, especially the social networks, with satellite- and indoor-navigation.

Project partner is the tarent solutions GmbH in Bonn, funding is provided by the Federal Ministery of Economics and Technology (BMWI) within the socalled Central innovation programme for medium-sized businesses (ZIM).

The project PlaSMoNa deals with the analysis, design and the implementation of a platform for the development of event- and group-oriented mobile applications with indoor- navigation.

Possible applications based on this PlaSMoNa-platform are business applications for big conferences, special advertising or games for smartphones with navigation-aspects.

The aim is to bring together the users of social networks in a goal-oriented, localized and event-oriented way. PlaSMoNa will offer a great deal of flexibility and open interfaces for different social networks, navigation methods, types of events and smartphones. Based on the social networks, a convenient and standardized environment for the development of a whole variety of new application types will evolve.

The project duration will be two years.
