Presentation summary: Improving the social participation of people with disabilities (PWDs) is a major challenge in Canada and internationally. For the vast majority of these people, getting around independently is an essential condition for carrying out their daily activities (e.g., working, going to the market, participating in community life). With this in mind, we’re going to find out how the use of geospatial navigation technologies adapted to the profiles of IAPs can greatly help them get around more safely in urban environments. We will present the adapted navigation requirements of IAPs, and then discuss the work of the MobiliSIG project, which aims to offer a navigation solution adapted to the needs of manual wheelchair users.
