Company / App Name: Smart Subway AR
What does it do?
Smart Subway AR uses Augmented Reality to help you navigate the NYC Subway platforms.
Why do we need it?
You’ll never get lost in the subway again!
Who is it for?
Anyone who rides the NYC subway (tourists, NYC natives, the visually impaired). Even NYC locals will love our smart maps feature, which gives you customized maps based on subway service (Late Night, Weekend, Rush Hour, etc)
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Our use of Augmented Reality is the “wow” factor! Unlike HopStop / Google Maps, we contain the *underground* directions, and you don’t need cell phone service for this to work!
We plan to build out the AR for all stations, and transform it into the *ultimate trip planner*. Start -> Nearest Subway Entrance -> Correct Platform -> What Train Car To Board -> Exit. Point to point navigation without getting lost!
