EasyCar: Location-Aware Assistance System Based on Smartphone in Automotive Aftermarket

EasyCar: Location-Aware Assistance System Based on Smartphone in Automotive Aftermarket With the rapid development of Intelligent Transportation System, automotive vehicles have become increasingly popular. Correspondingly, automotive aftermarket becomes significant substantially. However, it still faces a strong limitation: inappropriate services (such as vehicles rescue and mechanical help) are supported to drivers if there are any emergency, regardless of their current location. Meanwhile, the smartphone is advancing quickly endowed with multiple sensors and plays an essential role in all aspects of people’s lives, which make it practical to use smartphones for offering location-based services to vehicles. In this paper, we propose a location-aware assistance system based on smartphone for vehicles, and provide adaptive services according to their current location information . Using Aspect Oriented Programming Technology in server side to achieve low coupling, defining and realizing a communication plugin between components in android-based client side (App) to provide efficient and decoupled communications, then implementing the assistance system, also the scenarios are illustrated. Finally, tests are performed using a real vehicle after the completed realization of the assistance system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wireless Personal Communications Springer Journals
