SpaceBook is a speech-driven, hands-free, eyes-free device for pedestrian navigation and exploration. SpaceBook will be developed as open source and progress will be bench-marked through controlled task-based experiments with real users in central Edinburgh. SpaceBook will generate concrete technical and scientific advances for eyes-free, hands-free navigation and exploration systems which will support applications in tourism and tools for urban workers.

In addition to advances in navigation and exploration systems, SpaceBook provides a task environment in which more fundamental scientific and technical knowledge will be generated. Specifically we seek to advance the state of the art in model-based approaches to plan generation and recognition, statistical learning techniques for interaction management and machine learning of semantic analysis components.
