A Real-World Study of an Audio-Tactile Tourist Guide

Szymczak, Delphine LU ; Rassmus-Gröhn, Kirsten LU ; Magnusson, Charlotte LU and Hedvall, Per-Olof LU (2012) MobileHCI '12 In Proceedings of the 14th international conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices and services p.335-344
Abstract
This paper reports on the in-context evaluation of an audio-tactile interactive tourist guide - one test was done in a medieval city center, and the other was done at an archaeological site. The activity theory framework was used as a perspective to guide design, field-study and analysis. The evaluation shows that the guide allows users to experience an augmented reality, while keeping the environment in focus (in contrast with the common key-hole like experience that on-screen augmented reality generates). The evaluation also confirms the usefulness of extending the vibrational feedback to convey also distance information as well as directional information.
