Comments Off on Tourist Information Voice System (TIVS) User Manual 2.0: Installation and Data Entry for Bus Tour Version

The Tourist Information Voice System (TIVS) is a location aware and feature triggered commentary system for tour vehicles, boats, buses, pedestrians etc. TIVS uses Geographic Information System (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS) and wireless technology in order to support the traveller in the on-tour phase of their activity. This application allows tourism organisations and small and medium sized tourist enterprises  offering guided tours to improve their services through the delivery of location aware and feature triggered commentary to tourists on the move.

Tourist Information Voice System (TIVS): A Location Aware and Feature Triggered Commentary System for Tour Groups

Comments Off on Tourist Information Voice System (TIVS): A Location Aware and Feature Triggered Commentary System for Tour Groups

Location Based Services (LBS) are systems which utilise the location of a mobile device, in order to collect or deliver information. They allow for the delivery of location and time specific, personalised, value added services to users on the move. These services include: fleet tracking, concierge services, routing and navigation, emergency services and tour guides. Such services are revolutionising the tourism industry, as they can support the tourist in all three phases of their activity, particularly during the on tour stage. In recognition of the potential of Location Based Services for the tourism industry, this project set out to demonstrate the value of LBS, and to build and evaluate applications for the Australian tourism industry.
