Topic/Title Two wheels, one route: Navigation and media for wheelchair users

Abstract

Navigating and following a route is a matter of course for many people. GPS services, car navigation devices and navigation apps on our smartphones allow us to move successfully from one place to another without much effort, even in unknown environments. However, how do people who are restricted in their mobility navigate? Can wheelchair users easily use a smartphone or a traditional paper map and have all the information accessible that is needed to navigate themselves to a desired destination and successfully follow a route? My dissertation project examines whether and how media can contribute to participation and mobility for wheelchair users. For this purpose, data is collected in observations, interviews and photo documentations during the planning and navigation of routes. The aim of my dissertation project is to develop repertoires of media and other objects or aids that are significant for the navigation of wheelchair users.
