DAISY Dynamic Assisstive Information System
Daisy is a project which aims to help people with learning difficulties navigate around the public realm and thus achieve a greater level of independence. Daisy is a follow-up to a previous project DIMPLE Dynamic travel Information to Mobilise People with learning difficulties. Dimple established the importance of location-based instructions, information and reminders for people with learning difficulties, especially where the resulting stimuli were non-textual. Daisy is moving this onwards by developing a hand-held device to enable people to obtain pre and in-trip information about their location, where this information is presented in forms such as photographs, spoken instructions, sounds or cartoon movies. The objectives of the project are: Enhance independence of people requiring pre- and in-trip information about pedestrian and public transport journeys. Conclude pre-development research of the video map investigated in DIMPLE. Research information about pedestrian environments and how to incorporate this into the video map. Develop multi-terrain application (e.g. building sites) where visual cues can help "Industrialise" the DIMPLE software to make it easier for users and travel trainers to develop their own journeys using the software, both in-trip and pre-trip.
