Abstract

This paper presents a context-aware information service system for people with disabilities and for older adults. The system guides users who have difficulties in performing complicated tasks or finding paths at public places such as hospitals or government offices. The system is composed of sensor networks and a local information system which work together to gather the location and the process information, a user device which directly provides guidance to the user, and an information service server which understands the user context and provides guide contents.
