SmartSantanderRA: Santander Augmented Reality Application

We are very excited to announce that SmartSantanderRA App has been released on Google Play and App Store. SmartSantanderRA is a free App for Android and IoS smartphones based on augmented reality technology that has been developed within the SmartSantander project.

The App includes information about 2700 places in the city of Santander divided in different categories: beaches, park and gardens, monuments, Points Of Interest (POI), tourism offices, shops, art galleries, museums, libraries, culture events agenda, shops, public buses, taxis, bikes, parking places, etc.

It allows real time access to traffic and beaches cameras, weather reports and forecast, public buses information and bike-rental service, generating a unique ecosystem for citizens and visitors when walking around the city.

On starting the AR view, the App creates on the smartphone screen, an overlay over the camera with nearby POIs. If a particular POI is selected, further information (title, short description, photo and distance to the POI) is displayed. Apart from that, the App allows creating the route to that place or playing digital content related to the POI (e.g. videos) if it is available.

Anyway, the best way to see what the App offers is to download and install it.

Already more than 1200 downloads (56 % IoS, 44 % Android) since 3rd August.

    Dear Sirs:

    I deeply regret to say you that I can't enjoy you applications "SmartSantanderRA" and "Pace of the city" because you have developed versions only for Android and iOS smartphones. Why? I, and many people, use a Windows Phone smartphone. Will we ever enjoy a version of your applications for our smartphones?

    Yours faithfully,

    Maxine Viagnot
