MyPath System (WheelShare)

Accessible Routing and Navigation for Wheelchair Users through Sensor-enabled Surface Characteristics Analysis.

MyPath’s vision to provide users with customized paths between destinations. The paths are ideally customized by taking the user’s personal information into account. This allows the route provided to avoid certain barriers (i.e. fallen trees for users that may not be able to go over or around them), include specific facilities (i.e. curb cuts for wheelchair users), and avoid unsafe conditions (i.e. terrain that may be difficult for some users to physically navigate). MyPath hopes to crowdsource information to allow for a better algorithm and more real-time updates, allowing users more independence than they may have had in the past.

An example use case for MyPath System.
