Ashley: Activity scenario

Navigation Scenario

Ashley has her first day of first semester, she doesn’t know the location of the classrooms and other university areas but she want to go to room A303 for attending lecture. Now she has Voice-iLocater app in mobile phone for navigation, using voice messages assistance by listening through earphones.

She has configured automatic connection settings with iBeacon devices and when she entered into the university, iBeacon devices automatically connected with mobile app and start generating voice messages for her.

Application started assisting her like: First go straight and after 20 footsteps you will get stairs. After stairs please take elevator from left. After reaching at third floor, application will start providing the information about classes locations (3rd floor related details). She listened that room A303 is located at right side after 10 steps.

She got the room and start taking lecture, now she is feeling comfortable, motivated and happy because for the first time she reached at class room without taking an assistance from any person.

Questions:

  1. Is this scenario give you a clear understanding about application usage?
  2. Is this application idea looking realistic?
  3. What options would you like to add/see/change when triggering a voice message?

  1. In this scenario you should explain in one sentence with non-technical words the working principle of iBeacon technology. You can’t expect that people in your target group know about this technology.

    Described usage of the application seems to be realistic. It would be easier to answer the third question if you would have some example in the scenario.

    The scenario does not describe how Ashley enters the room number where she wants to go. Is this application using Siri speech interface for user control?

    Ashley has her first day of first semester, she doesn’t know the location of the classrooms, she want to go to room A303 for attending lecture. During welcoming week, one girl from Student Union installed the Voice-iLocater app in Ashley mobile phone for navigation in university area by using voice messages assistance by listening through earphones.

    She has configured automatic connection settings with iBeacon devices for Ashley and when Ashley entered into the university, iBeacon devices automatically connected with mobile app and start generating voice messages for her.

    Application started assisting her with scripted voice messages created particular based on the university area and mapped with university map like:

    Voice Message 1: First go straight
    Voice Message 2: After 20 footsteps you will get stairs.
    Voice Message 3: After stairs please take elevator from left.

    After reaching at third floor, application will start providing the information about classes locations at third floor. She listened that room A303 is located at right side after 10 steps.

    Voice Message 4: Please take your right after reaching at third floor through elevator
    Voice Message 5: Walk 10 steps forward

    and after final step, application will generate desired place/location message like:

    Voice Message 6: Now you are in front of room number A303. Thank You.

    She got the room and start taking lecture, now she is feeling comfortable, motivated and happy because for the first time she reached at class room without taking an assistance from any person.

    Note:
    All the voice messages will be scripted based on locations and mapped with building indoor map. These messages will trigger by app based on the response from installed iBeacons.
