Guiding Tourists through Haptic Interaction: Vibration Feedback in the Lund Time Machine

Szymczak, Delphine LU ; Magnusson, Charlotte LU and Rassmus-Gröhn, Kirsten LU (2012) Haptics: Perception, Devices, Mobility, and Communication 8th International Conference, EuroHaptics 2012 7283. p.157-162
Abstract
This paper describes the vibrationnal feedback that was chosen for the guiding interaction part of the Lund Time Machine application. This tourist guide provides information on points of interests along a trail, and guides the user along it. The interface uses audio and tactile modalities to be accessible in situations where the visual channel is not available. To navigate to the next goal, the user scans around and feels the phone vibrating in the correct direction. The distance coding was embedded in the directional feedback by making the bursts more frequent when getting closer to the goal. The design was first evaluated in a controlled study and then validated as usable and non-obtrusive within an evaluation in the real context of use.
