CampusPartner: An Assistive Technology for Mobility Impaired Pedestrians
Association for Computing Machinery
CampusPartner is an assistive technology that we are developing to support people with mobility impairments in planning and view their walking routes in advance. By viewing the route in advance, users can see an overview and detailed information about it as well as turn-by-turn instructions. CampusPartner will be a mobile application that will integrate existing services to provide navigation functionality. Users will be able to create a profile, which will include information such as obstacles and road types they would like to avoid, as well as their favorite or most commonly used routes. Additionally, users will be able to correct missing or inaccurate information, such as the absence of stairs on the map or temporary obstacles.
