Abstract

The HCI community has extensively studied location-based systems that applied various location sensing technologies. However, there is a lack of user experience (UX) studies of systems where hybrid location sensing approaches are provided. In this work, we designed, implemented and studied a hybrid location sharing system that offers automatic location sensing through Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons and participatory location sharing using GPS. Our findings provide design implications to future location-based systems that apply such a hybrid location sensing design.
