People with cognitive impairments frequently loose orientation when navigating outdoors. Existing navigation solutions provide an overwhelming amount of information and are unable to address the users’ needs and desires. The NavMem Explorer is an orientation aid specifically designed for people with mild cognitive impairments (MCI). Key design concepts are the decomposition of complex navigation tasks into less complex navigation tasks, the personalization of content, and the use of photographs whenever possible.
