The Virtual Guide for Assisted Tours Using Context Aware System

ABSTRACT:

               Tourism is one of the major sources of revenue in many countries including India. The most important aspect that can make the experience of a tourist good or bad is the availability of relevant information about the place and the location. The virtual guide (vg) deals with the development of a flexible navigation system for use in museums and other exhibition areas. The most important aspect that can make the experience of a tourist good or bad is the availability of relevant information about the place and the location. Right now the only source of information about various monuments and places is through human guides. But there are various problems associated with guides. The guides might not know the language of the traveler, or he might not know the right information about the place, and even charge the tourists excessively. Ultimately the tourist is not satisfied with the experience and the place. This paper describes the development of a low cost portable device with the headphone connected, so that the tourists can carry with them when they travel. In this project a complete system will be implemented and demonstrated in giving accurate information to the users, in a language of their choice. This project will also provide the tourists with context aware information, that is, information relevant to the monument and the location the tourists are in. The application described here will use a RFID technology and this can be used in many different locations like monuments, zoo, museum, parks etc. This can also be used in places like government offices and hospitals to give directions and information to users.
