Strategic Development of GUI Tools for Enhancing Transportation Mobility Among Vulnerable Groups During Pandemics

This project aims to improve transportation equality and life quality of voluntary groups with disabilities and the elderly by addressing social exclusion, accessibility, and mobility issues. The project team proposes to develop a strategic GUI application to facilitate the planning, establishment, and life-cycle maintenance and management of ride-sharing vehicle facilities, effectively accommodating their transportation needs. The objective is to develop a user-friendly GUI application using Python Tkinter library to simplify the adoption of the developed algorithms of the car-sharing system for vulnerable groups into practice. Within the GUI application, to streamline all core functions derived from the developed algorithms, encompassing interactive data input processes (such as retrieving city network data and user-defined points of interest (POI) like retirement communities, healthcare centers, grocery stores, entertainment clubs, etc.), automated data processing, calculations, decision-making, and result reporting.
