We have some exciting guests from abroad joining us for this week’s podcast. Assistant Professor at OsloMet George Anthony Giannoumis, originally from the U.S., and Daria Krivonos, originally from Russia, are passionate about technology and usability. During our conversation, they tell us how we can harness the power of Bluetooth on our smartphones. They also enlighten us on how beacons can be used as a tool for indoor navigation to help people with visual impairments (and those of us with little or no sense of direction!) find their way around. Our guests go on to tell us how beacons can provide us with information about our surroundings – and even help students show up to class more prepared.
If you are interested in this topic you can catch up with Anthony and Daria at the Zero Project Conference and Mobile World Congress where they will be presenting their work on indoor navigation.
