Abstract

Using a smartphone while walking is dangerous. If smartphones could be used in this environment as “tools for listening,” this would enable people to locate exciting opportunities in the city. This study aims to design a location-based audio guide system that combines music playlists that are tailored depending on the city and recorded commentary depending on the location. We call this system “Street Ongaku and Spot Oshaberi (SOSO)”, which allows the users to select a favorite program according to the situation from multiple SOSO programs and enjoys walking while listening to it. In this paper, the system design and its experimental results are presented.
