Abstract:

We present a prototype for indoor navigation using Augmented Reality that uses interior features to determine the user’s location and provide navigation instructions. We test our prototype in a simulated physical shopping mall environment and find that AR–based navigation can provide usability advantages in indoor locations, particularly where targets are located on different floors. We conclude by recommending further work in presenting interior navigation instructions using AR.
