ZusammenfassungLocation-based experiences depend on the availability and reliability of wireless infrastructures such as GPS, Wi-Fi, or mobile phone networks; but these technologies are not universally available everywhere and anytime. Studies of deployed experiences have shown that the characteristics of wireless infrastructures, especially their limited coverage and accuracy, have a major impact on the performance of an experience.
It is in the designers interest to be aware of technological restrictions to their work. Current state of the art authoring tools for location-based experiences implement one common overarching model: the idea of taking a map of the physical area in which the experience is to take place and then somehow placing virtual trigger zones on top of it. This model leaves no space for technological shortcomings and assumes a perfect registration between the real and the virtual. In order to increase the designers awareness of the technology, it is suggested to reveal the wireless infrastructures at authoring time through appropriate tools and workflows. This is thought to aid the designers in better understanding the characteristics of the underlying technology and thereby enable them to deal with potential problems before their work is deployed to the public.
This talk is based on the speaker's practical experience of working with professional experience designers on several occasions and presents a condensed overview of his thesis. Topics that are covered in the talk will include: - What are location-based experiences? - How are they built and authored? - Extending the conceptual model of authoring location-based experiences - Example experience: Rider Spoke - Behind the scenes of Rider Spoke, using the extended conceptual model - Lessons learned
