For all generations, unrestricted individual mobility is crucial for social exchange and participation. A self-determined life in old age therefore requires support in coping with distances.
It is difficult for people with limited mobility to find an optimal route. Everywhere, barriers such as stairs, high bus boarding or lack of wheelchair access can make the way difficult. The WikiNavi project is therefore developing an ICT-based assistance system that uses data from different sources for optimal route guidance. The ICT-supported assistance system takes into account all limitations of mobility, including the individual degree of physical or age-related disability, but also the heterogeneity of mobility chains in urban everyday life. In this way, users will be able to influence the underlying data basis of hurdles that have already been recorded in a controlled manner in order to report newly discovered barriers.
The solution will be created for urban spaces and will enable users with limited mobility to visit and return from their own homes to different destinations using existing means of transport, taking into account specific time constraints. In doing so, the individual needs are taken into account and an optimal route for the user is created.
