Beacon

D'Aundre Pryce-Pierre

Beacon is a navigation app dedicated to helping new post-secondary students get around campus with the use of augmented reality.

Why

Navigating around campus as a brand new student can be a very overwhelming experience especially for those who come from different countries. More than 65% of students have trouble navigating campus their first few months of school. Getting from point A to point B should be a fun and rewarding experience.

How

The maps/signage around campus have attempted to alleviate this issue, but with very little success. By talking with new students, the idea for the application came to life.

What

An indoor navigation app dedicated to helping new students at a post-secondary institution get to where they need to be with the use of augmented reality. The purpose of the app is to encourage exploration which in turn can enhance a student’s confidence in navigating their campus.
