Published by Sebastian Borggrewe
This is my Bachelor Thesis. It proposes a solution to the problem of pour GPS signal quality along mobile devices in various situations by introducing the QR Code as a manual approach of solving this issue.

Abstract:
The objective of this Bachelor Thesis was to evaluate the use of QR Codes as a complementing global positioning method for location aware iPhone Apps. It shows the surplus benefit of using QR Codes as a fallback method, in case GPS is not able to precisely identify the location of the handset.

In order to confirm this thesis, a scenario of a guided tour was created and implemented: A web front end for creating a tour and an iPhone App for taking the tour. In addition this scenario was analysed regarding its usability.

In this study, the QR Code was identified to be suited for the purpose of being used as a complementing method for location awareness and the use-case implemented proved its suitability for daily use.
