Generation of landmark-based navigation instructions from open-source data

Markus Dräger and Alexander Koller

In Proceedings of the Thirteenth Conference of the European Chapter of the ACL (EACL), Avignon, 2012.

We present a system for the real-time generation of car navigation instructions with landmarks. Our system relies exclusively on freely available map data from OpenStreetMap, organizes its output to fit into the available time until the next driving maneuver, and reacts in real time to driving errors. We show that female users spend significantly less time looking away from the road when using our system compared to a baseline system.
