About Us


SmartBFA is a smart solution that aims to identify barrier-free access (BFA) routes in Singapore through crowdsourced sensor data. There are two phases in SmartBFA:

Phase I

Devices will be retrofitted on wheelchair participants, to passively 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 application for barrier-free access in Singapore.

Join The Movement

Help make Singapore a more inclusive society by participating in the SmartBFA project! A sensor device will be retrofitted on your wheelchair for a period of two (2) months to automatically collect data on path accessibility (e.g., bumps, obstacles, slopes, etc). The sensor data will be anonymized and aggregated, for analysis on the "wheelchair-friendliness" of the path. A small reimbursement token will be provided for every week of data collection.
