Mobile Guide

A mobile guide for tourists, available for Pocket PCs and mobile phones, supports and enhances a tourist visit.

By automatically detecting the user's position, the mobile guide is able to provide navigation information along paths and touristic information by means of audio, images, videos and 3D virtual simulations.


The mobile guide pages have moved to a new Web site.
