Potential Use and Applications:

Development of arbitrary personalized mobile multimedia tourist guides.

General Description:

Mobile applications such as mobile tourist guides that provide tourists with location-based information today mostly aim to adapt the multimedia content to the different end user devices. More and more, these applications also exploit positioning information like GPS to guide the user on the trip. What is still lacking, however, is a personalization of the content to the interests and preferences of the individual tourist and the characteristics of the used end device. However, such a personalization increases the application’s complexity since every individual alternative have to be considered and implemented. To provide substantial support for the development of personalized (mobile) multimedia applications, we developed a domain independent software framework for an efficient and cost-effective development of personalized mobile multimedia applications. We illustrate the framework in the specific domain of personalized mobile tourist information.
