A Design Space for Location-Sensitive Aids for Older Users

Joy Goodman, Phil Gray


When designing navigation and other location-sensitive aids for older people, there are many important issues that need to be considered and questions that need to be answered. It is important that these are clearly identified as otherwise there is a risk that they will be glossed over. This paper maps out a design space for such aids, identifying and discussing several of the key issues for design for older people. It examines challenges related to investigating navigation with older people and discusses how the design space has helped in the design of a particular case study.
