Space navigation systems (such as Galileo and GPS constellations) allow permanent high precision monitoring of the user's position. Observation satellites deliver daily imagery of the Earth with a high resolution. Telecommunication satellites offer various means to exchange data at a high data rate, from anywhere in the world. In addition to this, emerging IOT networks (Internet Of Things) begin to provide communication services at a low data rate.
However, the mobility of people that have disabilities (either mental or physical) can still be very difficult and could be improved to facilitate their lives.
TO THE CHALLENGE
For example, several systems have already been developed to help blind people to move (thanks to audio guides connected to GPS satellite network).
Now, imagine new solutions based on Space systems that could help and guide disabled people (during everyday life or for a travel):
- Satellite pictures combined with navigation systems (for example, from Galileo new satellite network) could help to find the best adapted paths
- Telecommunication satellites and IOT networks combined with "big data" services could help sharing information (ex: recommending the best sites, avoiding the difficult ones...), and connecting people during their trips
Identify potential users, propose a nice interface (very user-friendly and easy to use), and perform a cost estimation for the development of your solution.
