Campus Wayfinding Service

Campus Wayfinding Service

As part of the Smart Campus initiative, a native wayfinding mobile application, POLY:U:WAY together with kiosks, have been launched for staff and students as well as visitors to locate classrooms, theatres and buildings across campus. After selecting destination, POLY:U:WAY will show users the recommended route, distance, walking time, and street view on a PolyU look-alike map. Students can get to lecture or exam venue via the shortest route, while visitors unfamiliar with the campus environment can navigate the PolyU campus with ease. This app is also furnished with location-based news and notifications, and information on events / activities planned for the day on campus as well as location of venue for such events / activities. Department administrators who manage such information can leverage this service for promotional purposes.
