Abstract

Vernacular memorials are becoming a common site on our roadsides and are increasingly being used, not only part of the grieving process but often encompasses a desire to encourage behavioural change in road usage. In the paper we present a locative virtual memorial service designed to address the needs of families to provide a memorial situated at the place of death, concerns of highways authorities over the possible distractive nature on drivers, and the desire of families and action groups to inform drivers about possible hazardous areas. In particular it proposes the augmentation of satellite navigation systems using both the crowd sourced memorial data and open data to trigger behavioural change through persuasive design.
