Increasing the share of multimodal journeys will be necessary for society to guarantee a high level of mobility given current growth rates.
However, while car drivers are already assisted by advanced guidance and navigation facilities, continuous on-trip assistance for multimodal travelers is still in its infancies. Especially when it comes to situations of modal change, travelers get discouraged by increased complexity and missing information and guidance.
Thus, our goal is to develop a palm-based personal travel companion for multimodal travelers. The work presented in this paper especially focuses on pedestrian orientation and guidance in complex public transport interchange buildings.
