Aixplorer: Next Generation Audio Guide for the City of Aachen

The goal of the Aixplorer project is to create a location-aware platform for audio guides in Aachen, Germany. It supports both indoor and outdoor navigation, and can thus be used like a traditional museum audio guide, or as a companion, notifying you of places of interest while you a wandering through the city.
