  • 2. Accessible Travelling Travelling is listed as one of top difficulties for people with limitations, impairments or disabilities. • Pre-trip (route planning, location data and cost etc.) • On-trip (personal assistance, real time data and accessibility data of surrounding etc.) • After-trip (Evaluation, voting and complains etc.) http://www.wlv.ac.uk/files/images/knowledge4/mind-the-gap.jpg

  • 7. Future Work Linked Open Accessibility Data Framework • Crowdsourcing accessible transport data • Data Integration Model – Open Accessibility Data Ontology – Linked Data (Linking to other resources) • Data Monitoring and Evaluation Model • Applications (Decision Support Systems or Recommendation Systems)
