Timing: For a full integration of persons with disabilities into society, a timely improvement of the situation is desirable. With an operational technology, immediate integration is possible.

Desired result: A technology that makes optical data collection legally possible.The information can be used to make the need for boarding help on public transport more effective and comfortable not only for people with disabilities, but for everyone who needs help to access public transport (e.g. cyclists, prams).

Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).
