The Future of Inclusive Digital Indoor Maps and Navigation

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 9:20 AM PDT  
Grand GH  

This session aims to explore the future of inclusive digital indoor maps and navigation, focusing on how the latest technology can enhance wayfinding experiences for all users. We will discuss the four-step inclusive digital journey, from planning to go to a location, reaching the destination, navigating within the premises, and returning home. The goal is to create an inclusive journey that lowers barriers for people of all abilities, creating a competitive advantage and reducing the need for personnel assistance.

We will delve into how digital navigation technology can overcome barriers for people with disabilities, making indoor navigation easier, enjoyable, and cost-effective. We will provide examples from various settings such as university campuses, retail spaces, healthcare facilities, and conference venues, demonstrating how users can preplan their routes, locate items, navigate between appointments, and find their way without assistance.

The session will highlight the user studies, co-designs, and other evaluations with the combined GoodMaps and XR Navigation platform, which aims to create a fully inclusive wayfinding experience. We will discuss GoodMaps' user-friendly mapping system, which uses state-of-the-art LiDAR imaging and camera positioning to enable seamless navigation. We will also introduce XR Navigation's Audiom platform, the world's most inclusive digital map viewer, which uses auditory virtual reality and high-contrast visuals to convey map data.
