Abstract : Building a navigation system only based on audio guidance is a very complex task to carry out. You need to provide the user enough information to guide him without flooding him under an heavy load of sounds. Multiple kinds of guidance clues must be provided without overloading the auditive space. You also have to sort informations to give the user the most pertinent one at a given time. Finally, the system should be able to guide the user precisely in all kinds of environments. Based on these objectives, the Mobile Audio Language (MAUDL) has been defined in this research work, after a review of the limitations and problems existing with the current formats within a navigation context. Customization of the audio rendering is one aspect showcased by the usage of the different features available in MAUDL. In addition, a new sound manager named Interactive eXtensible Engine (IXE) has been developed to provide a software support to the language. It integrates all the current features of MAUDL and has been specifically designed for mobile platforms. This research report details the various problems encountered while developping such a system and the technical decisions that led to the conception of this library.
