1. Imagine you are a freshman to the University of Rochester and someone is guiding you on a campus tour. During the process, you can use Line Navigation to record some routes to key places such as Bai’s office.
3. As soon as you do so, the icon turns to ‘Finish’, which can be taped whenever you want to end this route. When you are walking, the line continues along the path.
5. Last, touch ‘SUBMIT’ and a Route Number is returned.
It’s especially useful for UR students or faculties to use Line Navigation to go through the tunnel because of its complex inner structure.
2. After choosing ‘Record Route’ button, the real-time image captured by the camera is shown up on the screen. Then, you can touch the ‘Start Record’ to start recording your routes.
4. There is a chance for you to make sure whether this is the route you want to create. The captured images of the starting point and ending point will be posted on screen and a text field above them allows you to type the name of the building, and two text fields under images allow you to type the place you start and finish. Last, touch ‘SUBMIT’ and a Route Number is returned.
1. There is a girl who wants to drop by Bai’s office. She enters into the Wegmans Hall but does not know how to get there. Instead of looking for the room one by one, she can just turn on Line Navigation, which can guide her way to the office.
3. Then a translucency image of the starting point will be superimposed on the camera image, allowing her to make sure this is the right place to start guiding.
2. After touching the ‘Search Route’ icon, the location (or keywords) she wants to go can be entered in the input field. In this situation, she enters the information of building (Wegmans Hall), the starting point (gate) and destination (Bai's office or 3000), followed by typing ‘Search’.
4. ‘Start’, and an AR route line will be shown up in the air through the camera, which can guide her to go upstairs and find her advisors office. Once click ‘Finish’, interface goes back to the main page.
To achieve more communications between users, Line Navigation allows them to share their creation of routes with other users. So here comes the third scenario, following a route shared by a friend. Recall that in the first scenario, there is a route number returned to you when you create a new route. You can keep this number for yourself or send to your friends. For example, a librarian has created a detailed tour route of Rush Rhees Library, which can be followed by students by entering route number.
We converge this function with the second one as they both belong to ‘Search Route’. However, there is a big difference between them. In scenario 2, the goal of a user is to find the right place. So the optimal route with the shortest distance will be returned to the user. In this scenario, the goal is to follow a tour guide. So the duplicated or crossed line should not be removed.
