Abstract

The mall is a shopping center that contains a variety of retail stores and typically also restaurants or movie theater. Therefore, the building has large size and sometimes made people get confused to find a place or destination at the mall. The existing solution to this problem is to provide navigation in the mall such as directions, information boards, information center, or security guard who can help to guide people to their destination. This paper proposes the implementation of Virtual Reality (VR) to be one of the solutions. This research aims to provide an innovative application that can navigate people trying to find a certain place at the mall. The technology of VR is used to model the Virtual Environment of Mall. Google Cardboard is used as the additional device in VR. The navigation feature is implemented using NavMesh library. This library can be used to find the shortest path to reach the destination. The result of this research shows that Google Cardboard and NavMesh can be implemented to develop an innovative technology in the virtual navigation system and it can also give another experience for the user. This research also implements the feature to reach the destination quickly by using the shortest path algorithm.
