Abstract
(English)
In this paper, we propose a multi-device, location-aware museum guide. It is a mobile guide able to opportunistically exploit large screens when they are nearby the user. Various types of games, which can exploit multi-device environments, are included in addition to the museum and artwork descriptions. The mobile guide is equipped with an RFID reader, which provides information useful to automatically detect nearby artworks. We also present example applications of this solution and then briefly discuss the results of first empirical tests performed to evaluate the usefulness and the usability of the enhanced mobile guide.
