  • 1. Charlotte MagnussonHaptiMap coordinator
  • 2. HaptiMapThe HaptiMap project is aimed at making maps and location basedservices more accessible by using several senses like touch, hearingand vision. – developing tools that make it easier for developers to add adaptable multimodal components (designed to improve accessibility) into their applications – raising the awareness of these issues via new guidelines and to suggest extensions to existing design practices so that accessibility issues are considered throughout the design process. www.haptimap.org
  • 3. HaptiMap goal• In the HaptiMap project our goal is to increase the number of persons who are able to use mainstream map services. Thus our user group contains both sighted persons and persons with visual impairments (including elderly persons). www.haptimap.org
  • 4. AchievementsInitial work:• User studies• User study guidelines – D1.2• Industrial design practicesCheck outhttp://www.haptimap.org/documents.html www.haptimap.org
  • 5. Interaction design research• Development of novel techniques to support wayfinding and navigation www.haptimap.org
  • 6. Design tools• Guidelines• Checklists• Methods: – situation induced impairments – dynamic user experiences• Simulation tools• Etc see http://www.haptimap.org/designtools.html www.haptimap.org
  • 7. Toolkit The toolkit provides a simple cross-platform API that abstracts the complexities of – dealing with haptic / audio / visual input and output on a cross- platform basis – retrieving, storing and manipulating geographic data behind a simple interface, leaving user interface developers free to concentrate on maximising the usability and accessibility of their applications.http://www.haptimap.org/downloads/haptimaptoolkit.html www.haptimap.org
  • 8. DemonstratorsApplications illustrating how it works: – Juicy Beats Event Guide – Pocket navigator – Lund Time Machine www.haptimap.org
  • 9. Potential synergies• Exchange of experiences & tools• Joint events• Joint dissemination www.haptimap.org
