  1. 1. Designing guidance along audio-haptically augmented paths in a city environment

    Author : Delphine Szymczak; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Activity theory; Cultural historical; design; evaluation; iterative design; user-centered design; audio-tactile; multimodal; mobile; pedestrian navigation; scanning; tourist guide; vibration; in-use; focus; environment;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis is to show in a case study how it is possible to inform, with Activity Theory, the design and evaluation of a pedestrian navigation system that uses audio-tactile feedback. The case study consists of an iterative design process that results in a tourist guide application used in a mobile phone. READ MORE
