Final2216presentation 2007

  1. 1. Singapoint DW4-03 Soo Wei Li Mah Xue Er Jarno Cheong Kakit (Facilitator) Lappalainen
  2. 2. ■■■■■ Singapoint  Singapoint uses Global Positioning System (GPS) and an internal compass in a cell phone to allow users to point their phones at objects they are interested in to gain information about them. What it should help with:  Singapoint will help to create links between heritage sites and online resources and services  Users will be have access to information on physical locations immediately Why it is important:  Aids users to learn about Singapore’s cultural heritage  Foster stronger interracial ties among locals Impact:  This system can potentially replace many traditional mediums for sharing cultural information, replacing guidebooks, tour guides, maps etc.  Future developments: Only can learn about the past. Can also share information with tourists about future developments e.g. IR, attract them to come back again
  3. 3. ■■■■■ Problem statement: People  People  Tourists  Students  Why? According to our observations  Priority for users is to take photographs at heritage sites  Survey results show that users think the information provided at sites is too lengthy  Prefer small doses of information
  4. 4. ■■■■■ Survey Results
  5. 5. ■■■■■ Problem statement: Activity  To use Singapoint, users need to activate a mobile phone application  When the user points the phone, the application uses the vector information to identify the targeted object or objects in a geographical database  Navigate on screen to access a plethora of information and photographs or upload pictures  Pointing is a unique user-driven access method for retrieving the information requested  Video: YouTube: Mobile Augmented Reality
  6. 6. ■■■■■ Problem statement: Context  Provide users with a convenient way to obtain information that is both fun and educational  They prefer to access information as quickly as possible, hence real-time technology chosen  Alternative to lengthy and wordy guidebooks, a one-stop service which is centered around the user  User-driven, human-centered interface
  7. 7. ■■■■■ Problem Statement: Technology MARA (Mobile Augmented Reality Application)  Possible to determine exactly what scene is viewed by camera if absolute location and orientation of a camera and properties of lens are known  Uses accelerometers in all three axes to determine orientation, a tilt compensated compass for heading, and GPS for positioning.  Since these sensors give the (approximate) location and orientation, it is possible to annotate the viewfinder screen with information about real world objects, once the device is focusing on those objects.
  8. 8. ■■■■■ User Experience  Point cell phone in order to:  Locate heritage sites easily by highlighting them on screen with Virtual signs.  Virtual images of Sultan Mosque heritage sites can be hyperlinked to resources such as Archive images archive photos and History future developments.  Automatic labeling of photos for easy reference.
  9. 9. ■■■■■ User Experience  Allow users to view future developments of locations.  Leave or retrieve “post-it” messages as a form of feedback and interaction.  Upload and share unique photos on the spot immediately. Marina Bay Sands Archive images Future developments History Mobile Upload
  10. 10. ■■■■■ Strengths and Criticism of Solution  Strengths  Intuitive interface is easy to use  Application can easily be used while being on the move  Gives comprehensive overview of the heritage site by linking past to present and future  Provides various interactive elements to the user. For example:  Mobile Uploads: “Take your family on vacation with you virtually”  Post-its: Interact with other users and contribute to the service  Weaknesses  To what extent do technological barriers to use disadvantage people? Especially those who a) are not equipped with sufficiently advanced mobile phone. b) are not tech-savvy enough to use or enable such technology.  Spreading information about the application is difficult especially in the case of tourists who don’t have regular contact with Singapore  What would be the best way to market this technology to casual users? Your feedback and ideas are most welcome!
