Outdoor wayfinding and navigation systems and services have been around for
a long time and have become indispensable in peoples mobility in unfamiliar
environments. Advances in key technologies (e.g., positioning and mobile devices)
have increased interest in research and development of indoor wayfinding
and navigation systems and services in recent years.
Indoor Wayfinding and
Navigation
provides both breadth and depth of knowledge in designing and
building indoor wayfinding and navigation systems and services. It covers the
various types of sensors both feasible and practical for localization of users
inside buildings.
The book discusses current approaches, techniques, and technologies for
addressing issues in indoor wayfinding and navigation systems and services.
It includes coverage of the cognitive, positioning, mapping, and application
perspectives, an unusual but useful combination of information. This mix of
different perspectives helps you better understand the issues and challenges of
building indoor wayfinding and navigation systems and services, how they are
different from those used outdoors, and how they can be used efficiently and
effectively in challenging applications.
Written by well-known specialists in the field, the book addresses all aspects of
indoor wayfinding and navigation. It includes the latest research developments
on the topic, succinctly covers the fundamentals, and details the issues and
challenges in building new systems and services. With this information, you can
design indoor wayfinding and navigation systems and services for a variety of
uses and users.
