Wunderground

An android mobile app for alerting sleepy passengers of their impending stop. Built after I grew tired of falling asleep and missing my stop on the way home from a long day (excuse the pun :D).

The app monitors WiFi access-points available on London underground station platforms, recording a user’s progress towards their target location, i.e., home. As they approach their station the phone alerts the user in the hope they will wake up and realise. Currently prototyping using additional data and sensor fusion to improve station prediction accuracy using average time-between-station times and motion sensors to detect when the trains stops.
