Pervasive Intermodal Mobility Information System: DIMIS

Background: For public transit users, even a slight error or uncertainty can mean arriving late at their destination. For example, failing to find the right platform or stop in time may result in the inconvenience of a missed connection. It is therefore unsurprising that people's willingness to use public transit has not significantly improved over the past few years.

Project mission: To use information, positioning and wayfinding services to provide transit users with needed information, e.g. when switching from road to rail or vice versa.

Innovation: Deep integration of multiple transportation modes with mobility applications for personalized use.

Added benefit: User preferences and activities will be incorporated into journey planning using an activity planner.
