  • INES at SBSC 2011, Paraty-RJ

    Publicado em September 18th, 2011Publications

    The INES sub-project “An Intelligent, Ubiquitous and Context Sensitive Public Transportation System” had two papers (a full paper and a short paper) accepted for publication in the VIII Brazilian Symposium on Collaborative Systems (Simpósio Brasileiro de Sistemas Colaborativos – SBSC).
    SBSC will occur in October 5th – 7th in Paraty/RJ.

    The full paper presents the results of a survey conducted with public transportation users which investigates how collaborative systems based on social networks and collective intelligence can support sharing information with the passengers. The results show that there is a scarcity of ways to obtain real-time information related to public transportation and that the use of social network applications and collective intelligence is an interesting way to share and obtain this kind of information. This is a result of collaboration among researchers of UTFPR-Campo Mourão and UFBA.
    The short paper proposes a social network application that enables users to create routes on maps that can be edited collaboratively. This paper is part of the graduation work of a UTFPR-Campo Mourão student.

    Publication details are:
