Abstract

Many universities are positively performing open-campus activities as events that provide campus information for recruitment of high school students. However, open-campus activities present some problems. We propose a system to hold an open-campus event with a spoken dialogue toolkit that functions on smartphones. This method can reduce printing costs by displaying a browser with information that would otherwise be published in the brochure. Furthermore, by guiding the course with a voice interaction agent expressed using a 3D character model, GPS, Google Maps, and walking-path estimation system, no guide person is necessary. After designing and implementing an open-campus event system using these functions, we evaluated the proposed system through experimentation.
