Indoor wayfinding systems are still presenting challenges and open issues in providing accurate directions while navigating complex and large buildings. When considering users who are experiencing any kind of vision loss, these issues can become really serious to tackle. To facilitate users (both visually impaired people and people without disabilities) in navigating an indoor environment, we designed and implemented a pervasive system taking advantage of the beacon technology and an accessible mobile application. In this paper, we present the system design issues and implementation challenges we addressed to provide user-friendly services in indoor contexts, exploiting the Proximity technique.

Abstract

Indoor wayfinding systems are still presenting challenges and open issues in providing accurate directions while navigating complex and large buildings. When considering users who are experiencing any kind of vision loss, these issues can become really serious to tackle. To facilitate users (both visually impaired people and people without disabilities) in navigating an indoor environment, we designed and implemented a pervasive system taking advantage of the beacon technology and an accessible mobile application. In this paper, we present the system design issues and implementation challenges we addressed to provide user-friendly services in indoor contexts, exploiting the Proximity technique.
