Smart Signs are a new type of electronic door
and way signs based on small computers
which can be seamlessly incorporated in the
environment. Smart Signs provide personalized
context-aware guidance and messaging
designed to support wayfinding activities in
large indoor spaces and their surroundings.
The system uses the context information such
as a user’s mobility limitations, the weather,
and possible emergency situations to improve
guidance and messaging. Smart Signs
combine the simplicity of traditional static
signs with the flexibility and responsiveness of
electronic navigation systems.
