Variations in the quality of location information can negatively affect the users of pedestrian navigation support systems (PNSS). Current approaches to handle these variations mainly focus on improving the quality of location information by improving sensor technology and improving localization algorithms. This research introduces a different approach called "Adaptation to Quality" that adapts the behavior and output of the navigation application to the level of quality. Rather than treating location quality variations as exceptions or trying to improve the quality of location information, adaptation to quality focuses on still providing continuous navigation
support even when the location quality is very low or when location information is no longer available. We carried out a series of experiments to investigate ways to facilitate Adaptation to Quality. This paper summarizes the findings and insights.
