Abstract

Mobile augmented reality technology offers new ways of supporting visitors to cultural heritage sites. The services may include delivering information, navigation support and even gaze-based intuitive interaction. Significant progress has been made in exploring the potential of these technologies for indoor museum visits, as well as for the use of such technology outdoors. When considering technological support in a cultural heritage visit, one of the main challenges is supporting visitors' navigation. This paper presents an initial prototype of smart glasses-based navigation in an urban cultural heritage visit. We present the idea and a prototype that has yet to be experimented for usability and acceptance by the users.
