Abstract

In this paper, We discuss a pedestrian navigation using cellular phone. In order to offer navigation information intelligible for a user and to solve the problem that cellular phone has a small display area, we provide navigation sentences and landscape images from user's viewpoint. When a pedestrian goes to the destination, landmarks e.g. a building, a crossing, etc. exist on the way. Thus, we provide two navigation sentences at every mark, for example " Go to the bank at the corner. " and " Turn to the right at the bank. ". At the point which is important or easy to mistake for user, it provide landscape images. Then users can do a check of the direction. Providing a minute information, navigation sentences and landscape images, it is easy for users to go to the destination. Additionary, not having all of navigation data, our system only have a little data to manage it. The navigation data is created by the informer who is the man of the destination, and upload it to their web site. The informer who is knowledgeable about the way to the destination can give the route for users who visit it for the first time. And, it can be created using two or more navigation data which others have been created, which is the difference-use. The data in which information about way guidance from a station to a destination is described by XML (eXtensible Markup Language). Pedestrian navigation system using navigation data with cellular phone is implemented. Proposed system can realize intelligible way guidance for users, and provide the route guide, which are available for a small display area of a cellular phone and for pedestrians.
