Abstract
The purpose of this master’s thesis was to examine existing augmented reality technologies and develop an application for Windows phone. The goal with the application was to find new ways to use augmented reality technologies together with public transport. The end user would use the application to search for and find new journey options.

The development process consisted of four steps – investigation, design, implementation and testing. The investigation was done by looking at current public transport and augmented reality applications for
smartphones, compare them and see which functionality may be used or improved.

Design consisted of scenarios, low-fi prototyping and storyboards where the author followed Microsoft own guidelines... (More)

smartphones, compare them and see which functionality may be used or improved.

Design consisted of scenarios, low-fi prototyping and storyboards where the author followed Microsoft own guidelines for designing and developing a Windows phone application. The application was implemented for both Windows phone 7 and 8 and a comparison was made between the two systems. The
last step was testing and it was done by exploration and performance testing.

The result is an application and a video. It became clear that augmented reality can be used and the technology for it is here, but the application still have a long way to go with testing and further
consultations from users. (Less)
