Cultural Heritage represents a resource of inestimable value in Italy. This work presents a project to allow people affected by specific mental disabilities to enjoy the experience of an exhibition, by exploiting experienced AAL technological solutions. Basing on the results obtained by Casa+, a project to support daily life of people affected by the Down syndrome, we designed and developed a system based on a flexible architecture providing a set of context-aware applications for assisting people with cognitive disabilities to experiment an autonomous cultural experience. This is achieved allowing a safe location reaching through outdoor navigation and an assisted personal experience inside the exhibition building. In particular, we propose a location-aware mobile navigation system that integrates a consecutive point navigation system for outdoor navigation and an indoor navigation system that integrates recommendation mechanisms based on the localization information.

Abstract

Cultural Heritage represents a resource of inestimable value in Italy. This work presents a project to allow people affected by specific mental disabilities to enjoy the experience of an exhibition, by exploiting experienced AAL technological solutions. Basing on the results obtained by Casa+, a project to support daily life of people affected by the Down syndrome, we designed and developed a system based on a flexible architecture providing a set of context-aware applications for assisting people with cognitive disabilities to experiment an autonomous cultural experience. This is achieved allowing a safe location reaching through outdoor navigation and an assisted personal experience inside the exhibition building. In particular, we propose a location-aware mobile navigation system that integrates a consecutive point navigation system for outdoor navigation and an indoor navigation system that integrates recommendation mechanisms based on the localization information. A case study for a real single smart space and some preliminary experimental results are presented and discussed.
