But futher functionalities (e.g. link with timetable, seminar rooms, other sevices) will be added provide PoI, planning, notifications (what is going on nearby), in addition to the navigation (with interactive maps).

It is envasaged to be flexable and can be adapted t other places like City Centre shopping, tourist guidance, and event like Christmas Market and the Air Show…..
