Mobiway – Mobility Beyond Individualism: an Integrated Platform for Intelligent Transportation Systems of Tomorrow


Congested traffic is a reality of urban environments, due to road infrastructure problems that can no longer handle a large number of cars. Traffic incidents, working areas, weather conditions make trafficking a major concern for municipalities. Advanced traffic control technologies can lead to the more efficient use of road infrastructure, which reduces traffic congestion, local pollutant emissions and energy consumption. The communication capabilities offered by modern mobile devices offer opportunities for developing traffic control applications where vehicles and road infrastructure devices work together to solve traffic problems that directly affect the quality of life. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), for example, those who provide travel information and advice, help reduce congestion and reduce travel time, helping drivers make decisions while driving, offering more alternative routes.

MobiWay is a good and very easy to use navigation application. Unlike other GPS applications, it can not be used offline, requiring a permanent Internet connection. The application provides both standard and Facebook login.

ANDROID APPLICATION available HERE.

The user’s location is detected automatically when the application is started and the desired destination is entered from the keyboard in the “Search place …” field. Suggested routes are always the best options, the routes being time-efficient, the application avoiding very crowded areas. Aggregation and analysis of traffic data are done both by mathematics and statistics and by machine learning using data clustering algorithms and the determination of certain traffic functions. The application map has four modes of operation: normal, satellite, hybrid, terrain. Also, depending on the user’s preferences, several points of interest can be displayed: schools, bookstores, banks, hospitals, museums, restaurants. Both user-collected data and travel history can be viewed graphically on a web interface. The application provides protection and confidentiality of data, registered users having permanent access to personal data.
