Museums are both appealing and challenging as an environment for indoor positioning research. By nature, they are dense and rich in objects and information, and as a result they contain more information than a visitor can absorb in a time-limited visit. Many research projects have explored the potential of novel technologies to support information delivery(More)
In this paper we describe the in-progress work of the Pathlight navigation system for groups and individuals. Pathlight provides indoor navigation support in the museum using a handheld projector. We describe some of the advantages the system provides, look at some background, briefly describe some system features, and posit some open questions for further(More)

It is challenging because it requires the(More)
