Abstract: Navigation these days has truly reached a high point of significance in our lives, its primary functionality including the ability to track and deduce routes (as many as possible) to places new to us, informing us about various institutes along the way and much more additional information. The traditional way of navigation involves the usage of a map application, which defines the route to the destination and is then followed by the user accordingly. This involves constantly having to switch attention between the phone application and the real roads and therefore safety is a vital problematic factor in this approach, due to the unpredictability on the roads. Therefore, to tackle the problems in conjunction with the traditional navigation system, implementation of Augmented Reality is a smart step in order to impose better security standards and provide an altogether better user interactive experience. The proposed model makes use of HTTP URL requests, containing the parameters: API key, origin and destination address and obtains the Navigation information in the Java script object notation (JSON) format. It makes use of the Mapbox API integrated with the functionality of Navigation SDK to successfully impose virtual arrow on real time camera module, to show the path, establishing a sense of realism while navigating It can further update the user about the nearby approaching landmarks and other important bodies along the route, be it Gas stations, hospital or even bus stops, all embedded on a camera application, ensuring high security standards, thus giving it a significant edge over the usage of traditional navigation systems.
