Design with Heritage: Your Tour

In 2013-2014 the Sainsbury Centre took part in a research project with University College London and the Victoria and Albert Museum called Design with Heritage, looking at alternative models for gallery interpretation. 

The aim of the research project was to develop a device to deliver information that enhances visitor’s experience by providing personalised, audio, visual and text content. In place of conventional systems that rely on explicit inputting of personal profiles, the system used real-time monitoring of visitor behaviour combined with tracking of their location to infer their preferences and potential interests. A content management and delivery system then used this information to provide individual and adaptive gallery tours.
