Abstract:This paper presented a user experiment aiming to explore the effect of time pressure on pedestrian navigation behaviors in the circumstance of both outdoor and indoor navigation tasks. The experiment was conducted in the context of pedestrian navigation, with the independent variable of the time pressure and the dependent variables of behaviors like clicks, slides and zooms. It was showed as results that users without time pressure took more time to finish the task and slid more often on the screen when they looked for catering information during the outdoor navigation. Users’ behaviors had no significant differences between groups with and without time pressure when looking for an unknown location during outdoor navigation. But when users under no time pressure conducted an indoor navigation, the number of screen zooms was less. Above all, users suffering time pressure preferred to do less unnecessary screen operations and tried to quickly reach the destination. Therefore, the map system should take users’ time pressure into consideration when planning the optimal route.
