BICIS has won an award at the Smart City Expo World Congress granted by Diputació de Barcelona (Metropolitan Authority) for 'its technical solvency and the integration of AR'

BICIS allows users of the Bicing System in Barcelona ( to locate the nearest station that has bikes available. BICIS uses Augmented Reality to let you use your phone as a sort of visual compass, like many other AR apps of this kind do. This means that when you are trying to locate a particular station nearby you just need to hold your phone in your hand and turn it around until a sign appears in your screen informing you about the right direction you should be heading. Additionally, as an option, BICIS automatically opens the phone’s Maps app for you in case you would like to use it for turn-by-turn directions.
