Accessibility and Usability
You don’t need assistance in daily mobility? While a growing number of users have special requirements most of us need support at least temporarily along the life course. Research and Innovation contributes to ensure fair and equal mobility options for all individuals in our society.
Interactive presentations will enable visitors to explore options on novel mobility assistance for people with special needs to ensure independent and self-defined mobility in a seamless and multimodal transport system of the future.
Three projects will be representing the topic:
Blindness is just a restriction on information, not on mobility, and can be overcome as far as possible by implementation of relevant information systems.
WAY·KEY is a project funded by the BMVIT in the area of “Mobility of the Future”. The aim of the project is the development of technological artefacts to assist dementia patients in navigation.
The aim of TransportBuddy is to develop an autonomous vehicle that allows for transporting small goods or freight (e.g. purchases), thereby supporting footpaths and improving accessibility.
