Example text

In the development of this work, we follow the metaphor how to, that is, the environment establishes guidelines of how to perform a task whenever the user interacts with an augmented element in the user’s home. We consider augmented element any object or area in the environment that has associate some information and offers a mechanism to interact with it and to share the linked information. 1 we have described some of them and justified the chosen mechanism. Once acquired the information from an augmented element, the user receives the guidelines to perform the wanted activity.

Minimal environment adjustments. Supermarkets are reluctant to introduce complex changes in their internal information management systems. Furthermore, only simple low-cost easily maintainable physical instrumentation of their premises including aisles and shelves is acceptable. e. it must be able of recognizing and deal with standard UPC barcodes utilized in worldwide retail. Hence, it is a must that accessible shopping systems operate in real supermarkets with all their restrictions. Our proposal, namely BlindShopping, addresses the above mentioned requirements to provide an inexpensive and feasible solution in order to ensure wide deployment from blind people and supermarket organisations.
