Show me the way to Monte Carlo: density based trajectory navigation.
Strachan, Steven and Williamson, John and Murray-Smith, Roderick (2007) Show me the way to Monte Carlo: density based trajectory navigation. In: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems, April 28-May 3, 2007, San Jose, California, USA.
We demonstrate the use of uncertain prediction in a system for pedestrian navigation via audio with a combination of Global Positioning System data, a music player, inertial sensing, magnetic bearing data and Monte Carlo sampling for a density following task, where a listener’s music is modulated according to the changing predictions of user position with respect to a target density, in this case a trajectory or path. We show that this system enables eyes-free navigation around set trajectories or paths unfamiliar to the user and demonstrate that the system may be used effectively for varying trajectory width and context.
