English abstract:
In recent years, technological progress and an increasing amount of ubiquitously available information set the stage for the development of mobile navigation tools for pedestrians. However, the vast quantity of accessible navigational and environmental information aggravates effective information extraction. In order to facilitate the provision of customised information and to avoid redundant information, we currently determine three steps to overcome the shortcuts of existing approaches: building typologies of pedestrian behaviour, deriving context models out of activities of pedestrians and deriving semantic descriptions of routes. Based on this strategy we propose, that a more efficient and adaptive communication of routes for pedestrian wayfinding can be achieved.
