English abstract:
Mobile navigation service is one of the most important Location Based Services. With the rapid advances in enabling technologies for ubiquitous computing, more and more active or passive devices/sensors are augmented in the indoor environment, indoor environment has become smarter. This paper proposes that by introducing the notions of Smart Environment and Ambient Intelligent, a ubiquitous indoor navigation service can be built to provide an adaptive smart wayfinding support and enhance users with a new experience during indoor navigation. In this paper, we set up a smart environment with a positioning module and a wireless module. Based on this smart environment, we design a ubiquitous indoor navigation system with interaction and annotation module (for user generated content), user tracking module (for collaborative filtering) and context-aware adaptation to illustrate some potential benefits of combining indoor navigation and Smart Environment.
