On the Road to Design: Developing a Sonified Route Navigator for Cyclists
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the development of a system that uses sonification to assist cyclist’s navigation. The focus of the paper is on the design process, the decisions made and the methods used to make design choices. An important aspect was the use of listening tests undertaken by potential users of the system while cycling in order to obtain data used to underpin key design decisions regarding the timing and representation of route elements. The architecture and usage of the developed system is described, as well as details of on and off road evaluations of the system.
