Florian Alt , Alireza Sahami Shirazi , Max Pfeiffer , Paul Holleis and Albrecht Schmidt

In this paper we introduce an interactive context-ware advertising system designed for cabs, which is targeted to offer context-aware information such as advertisements, points of interest, events, etc. during a cab ride. Additionally it is possible for advertisers to upload their contents and define areas where their advertisements should be shown.
