Informatiktage 2018 - Virtual Cities

Relying on digital navigation assistance is often the most comfortable way of finding one's way through unfamiliar places. However, we typically don't pay a lot of attention to the path we are following and when assistance is not available anymore, we find ourselves disoriented. What are the reasons for this negative relation and how can we improve navigation displays so that they support orientation in the long term? At the Tag der Informatik, GIVA demonstrated their virtual reality laboratories to a public audience. Sascha Credé, Marie Müller and Arzu Cöltekin illustrated how empirical user studies in virtual cities can help to answer these questions. We like to say thank you for your interest and for the good discussions!
