U-go



U-go is an android application meant to provide navigational information to visitors and new students to the UMass-Boston campus. U-go has two major components. The first is a wifi signal strength triangulation system meant to provide location information to users who are inside of buildings and don't have access to GPS. This system can provide an approximate location inside of on-campus buildings by measuring the strength of wifi signals from the known wifi access points. U-go's second component is a system that displays a satellite map of the UMass-Boston campus and gives the user the option to show the route and distance between major buildings.
