Pedestrian Navigation requires effective communication between the mobile device and the user. The Mobile device should be able to give feedback to the user ensuring there is minimum input and attention of the user required. Mobile interaction for navigation has mostly been through the use of visual interfaces with maps and annotations. This paper describes a Multi-modal, haptic interface witb the visual interface of an OpenStreetMap on a mobile platform. The Wiimote is used as the haptic tool which will vibrate based on the navigation path to be taken by the user wit signals from the mobile application via a wireless connection using bluetooth.
