LOCATION INTELLIGENCE SERVICES FOR MOBILES USING RUBY ON RAILS AND JQUERYMOBILE

Alfio Costanzo, Alberto Faro, Concetto Spampinato

Abstract

The current applications for mobiles provide information about Location Based Services (LBS) of user interest that don't take into account the current status of the services neither they take into account the real time conditions of the traffic network or of the weather. Aim of the paper is to show how location intelligence services may be implemented by an open source solution that is able to help the activities and to support the decisions of the mobile users taking advantage from all the information collected by the sensors located on the field and from the business data stored on the disparate data stores that may be of interest of the urban/metropolitan mobility, security and logistics. Fuzzy logic and semantic web technologies are taken into account to improve the current LBS applications. A case study developed using Ruby on Rails and JQueryMobile illustrates how such a web service may work in practice.
