Over the past decade various indoor navigation systems have been developed. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of existing indoor navigation systems and analyzes the(More)
Over the years the software engineering community has increasingly realized the important role software architecture plays in fulfilling the quality requirements of a system. Practice shows that for current software systems, most usability issues are still only detected during testing and deployment. To improve the usability of a software system, usability(More)
Gesture-based interaction adds a new level of immersion to video games, but players who are blind are unable to play them as games use visual cues to indicate what gesture to provide and when.
