If you are walking or cycling, and don’t want to (or are unable to) spend most of the time focusing on a screen, the use of mobile devices tends to be a frustrating experience. The same is true in bright sunlight or if your eyesight just isn’t good enough to see every detail on the mobile screen. The HaptiMap project will enable digital maps and mobile location based services to be accessible to a wide range of users by using several senses like touch, hearing and vision. HaptiMap is a project which receives financial support from the Seventh Framework Programme. An overview of work done in the second year of the project is now available.
