    Abstract

    This project proposes the idea to develop a mobile based solution application that combines the tourism field and the current AR technology. The present tourism applications do not fully utilize all the aspects of AR technology such as AR navigation, scanning maps and building. As a result of not utilizing such technology, most of the tourism applications remain unfamiliar and outdated for the community and eventually they are getting eliminated from the market. In order to increase the popularity and remains updated among the community for the application, the focus areas of this project will be placed under the AR navigation and maps scanning features which can provide a better accuracy and interactive visual navigation for the user. A number of tourism mobile application reviews are attached to further enhance the proposed application’s features based on the reviewed strengths and weaknesses. The AR technology that will be applied in this project is Google ARCore after the reviewing several AR technologies such as ARKit and Vuforia. This project will be the first application to apply AR navigation and maps scanning in the tourism field. This project consists of 5 modules which are tutorial, map service, AR object generator, navigation and POI information module. The target platform of this application is Android and is developed mainly using Unity and Android Studio. In other words, it requires the integration between Unity and Android Studio. The settings between both IDE needs to be handle carefully to ensure the integration works perfectly. The implementation of this project is expected to increase the user experience on AR in the field of tourism, to promote local attractions to the tourism and to simplify the complexity of the tourism and subway exit area maps.
