This research proposes a sightseeing application with planning and navigation functions that can effectively utilize waiting time. Research background
In recent years, the percentage of individual trips in the tourism field has increased, and there is a strong tendency to emphasize individual preferences. Therefore, applications for creating sightseeing plans reflecting individual preferences and navigation for sightseeing have been proposed. However, many of these have
insufficient assumptions about local tourism, and the waiting time that occurs due to the small number of public transportation services has not been sufficiently considered.
・The planning function is a function to create a sightseeing plan, and by considering the timetable information of public transportation, you can create a sightseeing plan that allows you to visit many
sightseeing spots with a short waiting time.
・The navigation function provides route guidance based on the sightseeing plan created by the planning function, and effectively utilizes the waiting time by presenting sightseeing spots that can be visited during the waiting time.
・As a result of conducting a sightseeing experiment using the built sightseeing application, it was confirmed that the sightseeing experience was improved by making effective use of the waiting time. ・From the above results, the effectiveness of this tourism application is shown, and regional revitalization is expected by promoting local tourism.

This research was conducted mainly by Mr. Daiki Saito, who graduated from Tsuruoka National College of Technology (March 2022). Mr. Saito has been actively involved in meteorological observation equipment contests, lectures in his laboratory, and so on. Even as a first-year student in the advanced course, he demonstrated his positivity and persistence in his research, presenting his research results at the ITS Study Group [see Glossary 1.]. Currently enrolled in the master’s program at the University of Tsukuba, further development of research is expected.
Saito’s comment:
Through my research activities, I had the valuable experience of actually using the developed application and receiving feedback. We will continue to make improvements based on the valuable opinions we received from the subjects, and we would like to make efforts to release this application as a web application and smartphone application.
