Abstract

Moving is one of the most important issues as regards independence while conducting daily activities, in both indoor and outdoor environments. This is considered particularly true for people with disabilities and it should be guaranteed in order to enable and facilitate their integration and their independence. In this context, IoT could be a means to define and obtain smart and more accessible buildings. In this paper, we present UniSAS, a system which has been designed to improve the accessibility of buildings thanks to an architecture based on Raspberry Pi and users' mobile devices. The paper describes the system architecture and a prototype we have developed. Some users' scenarios are illustrated, so as to discuss the feasibility of our approach.
