EMOtive research featured in a televised report

Humans inscreasingly navigate using smart mapping apps. While this geographic information technology is convenient, it is limited in supporting us in our cognitive abilities to orient ourselves in space, and to acquire knowledge about our surroundings. In the SNF supported Emotive project, Sara Irina Fabrikant, Kai-Florian Richter, Annina Brügger and Sascha Credé investigate how smart navigation assistants of the future should be designed to not only take navigators and wayfinders safely to their desired destinations, but also to support them in learning to orient and wayfind themselves. This Emotive research has been featured in a televised report, developed by the SRF Nano team. You can see the broadcasted video here. We wish take the opportunity to thank the SRF Nano team for this expressive results of a pleasant and professional collaboration.

Future navigation devices should make use of landmarks to support spatial learning
