Research has shown that the usability, safety and acceptability of navigation systems can be enhanced by the use of landmarks within guidance instructions. ‘Landmarks’, refer to buildings, street furniture and built aspects of the environment. The REGIONAL project aims to enable the inclusion of landmarks within future navigation systems by gaining a thorough understanding of the driver requirements for this information and the commercial enablers and barriers to their inclusion within databases, navigation software and end products. This deliverable tackles the latter issue of the requirements of industry.
