Apps can help you find places on campus: iCampus PUC
The iCampus app, is developed by the Integrated Risk Management Center (CGIR) in partnership with the Interdisciplinary Center for the Environment (NIMA) and Synapse - Innovation Program Genesis Institute. The app, designed exclusively for PUC community, provides campus navigation, like a GPS, in addition to gives information about services offered in buildings, such as restaurants and banks. Still in beta and 2D version, the teacher responsible for CGIR, Fernando Coutinho, says the idea is to get feedback from users in this first version and then launch version 2.0 next year, as the suggested improvements and in 3D.
The software update also promises to include the identification of stores with labels and photos. The goal is that not only students, but anyone entering PUC can download the app on your smartphone and get information to facilitate their movement across campus.
The project manager of CGIR, Alexandre Rangel, said in an interview for PUC Urgent newspaper, that the app will go beyond the internal GPS function of the university. "The idea is to think a more interactive and participatory campus. Thinking about it, we will develop the relationship between the university and the students, faculty, staff, which could also contribute to the organization of the campus. "
