Weather to go

With weather to go we present an auditory weather report which informs the user about the future or current  weather  situation  when  leaving  home  in  the  morning  or the office in the evening.  The sonification is designed to be calm, coherent and expectable so that it can blend well into the user’s familiar environment.  In this work the auditory display is activated when somebody leaves through the door.  The activity is sensed by  a  multi-purpose  sensor  unit  mounted  at  the  door.   When  the door is opened, weather to go renders and plays sounds that characterize the weather forecast for the region where the system is located. That way, the system raises the user’s awareness for suitable clothes, transportation or route to take to the destination in the right moment.
