The navigation task is a very demanding application for mobile users. The algorithms of present software solutions are based on the established methods of car navigation systems and thus exhibit some inherent disadvantages: findings in spatial cognition research have shown that human users need landmarks for an easy and successful wayfinding. Typically, however, an object is not a landmark per se, but can be one relative to its environment. Unfortunately, these objects are not part of route… CONTINUE READING
