R&D Projects iDotto


Project iDotto has developed an innovative app for tourism and mobility. The app automatically adjusts audio commentary in real-time, based on the behavior of users in space and time.


iDotto was created by Duel in collaboration with communications experts and cultural professionals. To date, the project has developed original audio descriptions for a pilot area.

Duel designed and developed a methodology for the composition of descriptions and the codification of individual entries. Individual entries are dynamically assembled to create meaningful descriptions.

iDotto’s software modules assemble audio descriptions for tourists based on their current position, their previous listening history, and their preferences.

Each entry is geo-referenced to allow users to listen to audio descriptions of monuments and sites, based on their current location.

Results of the iDotto research project

The iDotto research project developed an app prototype and a technology service platform for the real-time distribution of geolocated information.

Duel worked on the project with the Digilab Interdepartmental Center of Sapienza University of Rome.

The iDotto project for tourism in mobility was financed by Lazio Region through POR FESR 2007-2013, Innovation call for small and micro-enterprises.

Further Developments

An iDotto application prototype was developed for iOS and Android in May 2013.
