Development of A Mobile Navigation Smartphone Application for Seniors in Urban Areas

Many seniors face mobility issues and changes in life-style, for example, switching from driving to using a carpool, taxi or fixed route or demand responsive public transportation. There are few smartphone applications that cater to the mobility needs of seniors (such as information on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant infrastructure), and the few that exist have limited functions. The objectives of this project are (a) to understand the lifestyle and mobility needs of seniors; (b) to develop a prototype smartphone smart mobility application that caters to the needs identified; (c) to conduct pilot tests in El Paso and New York.
