The Mobile Computing Research Centre of the European University of Cyprus announces the launch of the application “Fuel Finder CY” for iPhone and iPad. The application “Fuel Finder CY” is a cheap fuel finder guide to Cyprus. Our application helps the user, among others, to perform the following tasks:
- to find the cheapest gas stations within varying radius of the user’s position
- to be aware of the fluctuations of fuel prices
- to see the fuel prices by district, region or fuel company
Fuel prices for each station are updated on a daily basis. This means that the user with just a tap can download these from the Internet to its device, where they are stored permanently. Consequently the user doesn’t need continuous Internet connection to be able to use the application effectively.
The application is available for free in both Greek and English.
The implementation of the “Fuel Finder CY” is an example of how our Research Centre can help the society, but also a successful example of cooperation between the academic and the public sector. More specifically it was created in close cooperation with the Ministry of Energy, Trade, Industry and Tourism as the Information Department of the State which makes it technically possible to get the latest fuel prices.
The Mobile Computing Research Center is committed to the continuous evolution of the application and the integration of technologies arising from research work conducted at the Centre such as the possibility of proposing cheap gas stations along the user’s the usual routes.
