title Surfing the city: An architecture for context-aware urban exploration
source Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing and Multimedia, Jakata, Indonesia, December 3-5, ISBN978-3-85403-230-4, pp. 31-40
summary Web surfing, the act of following links of interest with no pre-defined search goal, is a paradigm that can be translated to the physical realm of urban exploration. With mobile computing technology and its supporting infrastructure becoming ever more ubiquitous, a user's digital device can be transformed into a portal that connects their physical environment with the virtual, providing instant access to a plethora of information that can influence and guide their interactions with the city. This paper describes the technical aspects of a context-aware system for urban exploration based on the paradigm of web surfing. An implementation is presented that demonstrates a browsing style of interaction with an urban environment through context-based navigational prompts.
