June 13th, 2014 | Naples, Italy - Piazza Bellini

The project OR.C.HE.S.T.R.A. - ORganization of Cultural HEritage for Smart Tourism and Real-time Accessibility - aims to develop, for both tourists and residents, smart technological solutions to better account tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the city of Naples.

The event "Orchestra - SmartCityDay" aims to disseminate the knowledge of the project presenting some of the results achieved until now and giving the opportunity to look at the new apps and the new technologies that will change Naples city.

ICAR-CNR is presenting current prototypes developed at its ihealth lab in the field of touchless interaction in virtual reality, whose goal is to allow Point of Interest (POI) or any other touristic information to be viewed, controlled, and manipulated without contact through the use of a camera.

ICAR-CNR is also presenting an app for smartphones. It proposes tours in the old city centre personalized on the basis of user's wishes, available amount of time, opening/closing times, rest pauses, weather forecast, user type, and so on. Its combined use with a smartwatch is envisaged to show information.
