Transport-bot is a one day project created during the Rapid Experience Prototyping class. The team used existing iMessage chat interface to create an experience of augmented conversation using a chatbot which helps people to navigate around the city.

The team started by exploring the current navigation services and imagined how this could be enhanced if an AI-driven chatbot was used as a medium for such a service. The features, such as asking for assistance in free form, sending and receiving the information in pictures and videos, and predicting the need for assistance were introduced in this prototype. Transport-bot also assists in a friendly way by using casual language, acting more like a buddy than a regular navigation service.
