DescriptionA thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Diploma of Electronics & Computer Engineering at the School of Electronics & Computer Engineering Technical University of Creteen
Content SummaryRecent international surveys present that humans spend over 75\% of their time indoors, however their movements are rarely limited to streets routes and mainly take place within buildings of different size and shape, since they are able to roam almost in any free space of a building. Furthermore, the complexity of buildings is growing constantly and visitors want to feel familiar inside buildings and they want to be able to search, find and finally reach their desired destination through a sequence of simple instructions. They also want to know more information about the objects that they are located front of them, in order to acquire a complete view. To this end, any tool supporting the creation of floor plans, management of their content and generation of navigation instructions is considered invaluable both for visitors of buildings and owners. In this thesis we discuss the design and implementation of a platform for the design, creation and management of interior spaces. More specifically, we present an editor tool (desktop application) supporting the design, creation and management of floor plans, as well as floor plan editing, definition of primitives structures and give annotation to each containing object. Furthermore, we present the mobile application that we have developed, supporting the navigation inside the buildings which have been created using the editor tool. The mobile application is compatible with most state-of-the-art mobile devices and platforms, while both tools have been designed with flexibility and extensibility in mind. To this end, they can be used in various domains including universities, museums, shopping malls, as well as every large building. Finally, is worth mentioning that our applications have been evaluated for their usability by professionals and naive users.en
