Short description: In order to make public transport as comfortable as possible for people with disabilities and to enable them to move around independently, early detection in situations of need must be ensured. However, camera systems that could make this possible cannot be used due to the legal situation in Europe.
Market potential: In the long term, a GDPR-compliant camera system enables optimisation of capacity utilisation, targeted timetable adjustments and improved external communication on the basis of a high level of data.
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).
Market presence of challenge owner: Global presence.
