Specifically, it is a museum tour system that operates on mobile devices (cell phones and tablets) and uses Augmented Reality technologies, storytelling techniques, exhibit tracking services, and users' profile modeling. Combining all these technologies results in the creation of a digital platform with the most up-to-date and innovative museology standards, in order to succeed increase of visitor satisfaction and improvement of their experience, beyond conventional tour guides and traditional exhibits.

The main objective of the project is to link research and innovation with entrepreneurship and to enhance the competitiveness, productivity and extroversion of businesses to international markets.
