Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The paper presents the new concept of Adaptive Augmented Reality (A2R), employed within the context of the creation of an AR guide for the museum visit. The augmentations provided are not only visual but also acoustic, while the interest of the visitor is also monitored using physiological sensors, so that the multimedia content delivered to the visitor's see-through AR display with which she can interact through gesture interaction can be adapted according to her engagement and interests. A theoretical framework is provided together with an overview of the system architecture. This contribution focuses on the interdisciplinary, collaborative and UC-informed methodology employed for the identification and elicitation of the motivations and needs of the Cultural Heritage professionals as to the potential of the A2R approach for the museum visit.
