My name is Josh Karon and I am a fourth-year student in Geomatics at York University. I am currently working on an engineering capstone project with the goal of assessing York’s Keel campus with respect to people with accessibility needs. Many of the buildings on campus are, let’s just say, from another generation and are not designed accommodate for people with disabilities. The goal of the project is to identify key points that would greatly improve the accessibility on campus if upgraded. For example, installing power assist on a few critical doors could have a large impact. Also, my team and I are trying to develop an indoor and outdoor routing app that is conditional on the individual user’s accessibility needs. Here is a picture of a rough prototype just to give you an idea:
If anyone has any ideas or experience in this area I would love to get the conversation started.
