Fein-AUC Way Finding App
“Fein” is a Mobile Application, designed to solve one of the most challenging problems that confront the AUC community; congested parking. Covering all gates and parking lots, the app provides instant information about availability in order to reduce the time waste and long cues at gates. It functions based on direct interaction among users. The user can know where the available and condensed places are through a system of ratings and comments. The application also allows the user to actively participate in helping others by pointing out which areas are available and which are congested through the usage of color traffic indicators. Fein divides the campus into 5 gates which are instantly recognized by logos that resemble the major landmarks existing in each gate. Another important feature in Fein, is the favorites option which enables the user to specify a certain gate and entrance to be listed under the list of favorites saving time whenever the app is visited. Finally, the application contains a notification system that notifies all users on traffic updates without having to be active on the application as traffic statuses changes constantly throughout the day. Fein is now on Google Play Store and is planned to be on the Apple Store too.
