More about this project

The Mobile Campus Assistant (MCA) project ran for 6 months in 2009. It made existing campus-related information available to University of Bristol students via their mobiles and location-aware smart phones. The prototype, open source mobile smart phone application and mobile-specific web site ( offers staff and students on the move with a demonstration ‘where is my nearest…’ service, combining up-to-date information from campus sources with external public data and services including Google maps and transport timetables.

We are now working with Bristol City Council and other local partners on the MyMobileBristol project.
