Distributing attention between environment and navigation system to increase spatial knowledge acquisition during assisted wayfinding


Brügger, Annina; Richter, Kai-Florian; Fabrikant, Sara I (2017). Distributing attention between environment and navigation system to increase spatial knowledge acquisition during assisted wayfinding. In: COSIT 2017: International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, L'Aquila (I), 4 September 2017 - 8 September 2017, 19-22.

Abstract

Travelers happily follow the route instructions of their devices when navigating in an unknown environment. Navigation systems focus on route instructions to allow the user to efficiently reach a destination, but their increased use also has negative consequences. We argue that the limitation for spatial knowledge acquisition is grounded in the system’s design, primarily aimed at increasing navigation efficiency. Therefore, we empirically investigate how navigation systems could guide users’ attention to support spatial knowledge acquisition during efficient route following tasks.
