Interactive & Digital

Johns Hopkins University – Digital Wayfinding

CG developed a network of 12 computerized kiosks that act as one-stop wayfinding centers. Each kiosk show visitors their locations, how to get to any building and where to park; it also provides directory, event, transit and accessibility information.

The anodized aluminum map works like a conventional, static map, but is also interactive. The map panel sits below a grid of infrared beams; when a finger touches a building on the map, the beam is interrupted and activates the LCD screen. The weatherproof kiosk can also be activated by touching the LCD screen or pushing one of the buttons.

Notable: This is the first interactive, multi-purpose kiosk developed for exterior use, with temperature controls, screen savers, ambient light adjusters, proximity detectors and weatherproofing.
