Wayfinding in Massachusetts

2018/12/17

Wouldn’t it be great to be guided to your airport gate?

I am building a Massachusetts partnership to develop a technology-based wayfinding (indoor navigation) solution that works for everyone, including people with disabilities. For the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force of the Worldwide Web Consortium, I have been developing international wayfinding guidelines focused on people with cognitive disabilities. For years, I have been building a collection of technology-driven wayfinding efforts. I anticipate testing these technologies, perhaps on the Boston subway system and/or Logan Airport, by people with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.

Possible Partners as of December 2018

I have enlisted the support of senior leadership for the following.

Independent Living Centers
