This page is a repository of draft thinking for the kinds of services Fluid plans to deliver within the institution itself. These centre around some form of mobile device carried around by the visitor - our initial project plan calls for initial targetting for the Apple iPhone - alternative platforms include Google Android, Blackberry, and the J2ME platform represented by Nokia phones and others.

Location awareness

A key affordance for our services is to become aware of the location of the user. This might enable

  • Way-finding - helping the visitor find and plan routes to items of interest
  • Triggered resources - playing audio or video that is appropriate to the visitor's context
  • Physical bookmarking - allowing the user to store references to places or items of interest, or share them via social networking
  • "Contextual inquiry" - presenting information and an exploration path for information resources both inside and outside the institution relating to the visitor's context

This information could be acquired by a number of modalities.
