James Biagioni, CTS Fellow, will present a seminar entitled "Building a Transit Navigator: The TransitGenie Story" at 4:00 p.m. in Room 1000 SEO



One article sited:
"Explore: An Attraction Search Tool for Transit Trip Planning"

Abstract:
Multi-modal transit navigators provide the ability to travel from one location to another without requiring a detailed understanding of the transit network. This is useful in large cities with complex transit systems, where knowing which combination of trains and buses provides the most efficient way to get from Point A to Point B requires expert knowledge.

In this talk I will discuss the development of TransitGenie, an iPhone-based multi-modal transit navigator built by the BITS Networked Systems Laboratory at UIC: its key features, how it works, and future directions for the project.

Biography: James Biagioni is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a third year IGERT fellow. He is also a member of the BITS Networked Systems Laboratory, where his research interests are centered around the topic of multi-modal transit navigation.
