    Smart Signs are a new type of electronic door and way signs based on small computers which can be seamlessly incorporated in the environment. Smart Signs provide personalized context-aware guidance and messaging designed to support wayfinding activities in large indoor spaces and their surroundings. The system uses the context information such as a user’s mobility limitations, the weather, and possible emergency situations to improve guidance and messaging. Smart Signs combine the simplicity of traditional static signs with the flexibility and responsiveness of electronic navigation systems.
