Smartphones, smartwatches and other devices can give us our precise location, and turn-by-turn directions to navigate to a desired destination. However, there are situations in which it is difficult to access this information due to the actual context; e.g., during the activity of Running, and ecause of the runner’s mobile state. Existing solutions require the runner to shift their focus away from the running activity or, sometimes even to disrupt it. We propose a navigation system that exploits the head movements that runners naturally perform when scanning and evaluating the possible path options at an intersection. We provide feedback about the path they are looking at to indicate the correct path to follow. To test our concept, we implemented a prototype that tracks the runners’ head direction and provides them with corresponding audio feedback.
