Abstract:   (4720 Views)
Human activities are embedded in the space. People frequently use their spatial cognitive abilities in familiar spaces or navigational aids (e.g., map and Satnav) in unfamiliar areas to position and find their ways. Nowadays, satellite navigation systems are widely used by even non-experts people find it efficient and easy to use. These systems do positioning, way finding and guidance in a nonstop and reliable way. In other word they make it easy to navigate, it is where the problems come from people have to get depend on these systems and lose their innate ability to navigate without any non-environmental aids. This paper is intended to merge the bests of various navigation methods to have a cognitively enhanced navigation aids which could promote people spatial cognition.
