SMARTBFA is a smart solution that aims to find barrier-free access (BFA) routes for Singaporeans through crowdsourced sensor data. There are two phases in SmartBFA:
Phase I: Devices will be retrofitted on wheelchair participants, to automatically collect data on path accessibility (e.g., bumps, obstacles, slopes, etc).
Phase II: Sensor data collected from wheelchair participants will be used to create a map for barrier-free access in Singapore.
