Persons with physical disabilities face challenges in real-time route finding due to the absence of a map application that contains barrier-free access information and contextual information, such as traffic conditions, bus arrival timings, etc.
Mercurics’ one-stop information portal collates information on portal on barrier-free accessibility in the Central Business District and selected mature estates.
- - Place accessibility and facilities – e.g. accessible washrooms and entrances;
- - Path surface conditions – e.g. incline and bumpiness; and
- - Micro-level accessibility – e.g. shelters and ramps
Through this project, Mercuris will also develop evidence-based recommendations which will be provided to town planners and relevant agencies to improve barrier-free accessibility.
Persons with disabilities will be better able to access real-time route-finding information, thereby gaining greater control over their travel routes and expected travel time.
