The app will use both auditory and visual cues to help the blind, deaf, or average tourist navigate their way by bus.
To use the app, the traveler will first choose their preferred route. The app will then guide the user to the closest bus stop and let them know how long until the bus arrives. Once the user has boarded the bus, the app will keep them informed as to how many stops remain and send an alert when it's time to ring the bell. Once the user has left the bus, the system will continue giving directions until they reach the final destination.
The application will interact with the smartphone's compass, accelerometer, and GPS and will communicate in several languages.
