Abstract [en]

This position paper makes a case for the need topredictpedestrian position andschedulecommunication acts in mo-bile navigation systems. In our work, carried out in the con-text of a voice guided city navigation system, we have foundthat improperly timed route instructions are a major cause offailure in guiding pedestrians in unknown environments. Fur-thermore, the need to communicate other information whileguiding users on routes, as well as complications caused bynetwork latencies, occurs often enough to require that we beable synchronize communication acts with user position asthey follow a route. This has led us to focus our efforts onscheduling utterances to maximize route following success.In this position paper we motivate this problem and presentour initial approach and findings which should be of interestto others engaged in similar efforts in both the Geography andHCI communities.
