Italo Calvino, The invisible cities

The SMART GUIDE project offers a new way of experiencing urban spaces, using technological innovation to create an unprecedented immersive experience, in complete harmony with the surrounding environment, ensuring continuity of service between indoor and outdoor environments.

SMART GUIDE aims to create a cloud-based platform for infoteinment services in augmented acoustic reality. These services make it possible to provide audio content of an informative and functional nature through an ergonomic user system: smartphones equipped with bone conduction headphones, which use electromagnetic actuators to vibrate the bones of the skull. This makes it possible to generate sounds that are perceived directly by the inner ear, leaving the auditory canal free.

In this way, in addition to the sound diffused by the headphones, the ears are free to listen to voices and sounds of the surrounding environment, safely and without altering the already existing communication channels.

In addition to the development of the technology and the conception of the hardware for the implementation of the platform, the project includes the creation of sound content in 3D audio, which guarantees an immersive listening experience and a realistic fusion with the surrounding sound environment.

 The platform is based on the integration of indoor and outdoor localization technologies, and aims at an innovative evolution of the Smart Cities concept applicable to the tourism / cultural sector through ecological and effective hardware solutions guaranteeing a high quality audio experience.
