aim of the LoVEUS (Location aware Visually
Enhanced Ubiquitous Services) project is to provide European
citizens with ubiquitous services for personalised,
tourism-oriented multimedia information related to
the location and orientation within cultural sites or
urban settings, occasionally enriched with relevant
- To design, implement and evaluate a system that allows a completely new service for the European citizen to become available, namely the provision of location and orientation sensitive multimedia information delivery (with strong focus on information visualization) to the user’s new generation mobile terminal device.
- To develop a user friendly, ubiquitous mobile next generation terminal that integrates the mobile phone, Portable Digital Assistant (PDA) and wearable computer technologies and features into one, enhanced by the presence of a
Global Positioning System (GPS) and a digital compass.
- To provide, through this basic infrastructure, a new paradigm for promoting tourism, cultural heritage as well as commercial services, exploiting and expanding the ideas of location aware services.
The project will present the accomplishments in the form of an application system that will be demonstrated with a number of location aware value added services based on ‘next generation’ sensitive maps. These VASs include streamed multimedia services for Cultural heritage, personalised advertisement, visually enhanced navigation and guidance.
