These Programs and Products Improve Accessibility in Public

 - Jul 9, 2015
3D-printed wheelchair ramps, assistive beacon technology and interactive street furniture pieces are just a few of the ways accessibility in public is being gradually improved around the world.

The use of technology is a common theme in all of these things, whether it comes in the form of an app, robotic guide or a signal system that makes it easy for someone with limited eyesight to get around.

One of the problems with supporting accessibility in public is that parking spots, washrooms and other inclusive designs are misused by able-bodied individuals. In order to bring awareness to this, creative campaigns from Russia's Dislife organization and the Driver's School in Buenos Aires cleverly put technology to work in order to show how important it is to leave these spaces to those who need them most.
