SIMON - asSIsted Mobility for Older aNd impaired users

SIMON es un proyecto orientado a promover la vida independiente y la participación en sociedad de las personas con movilidad reducida, enfocado al despliegue de soluciones existentes ya maduras y su promoción. Sus dos objetivos principales son: por un lado, la modernización de tarjetas de aparcamiento, enmarcada en la Estrategia Europea sobre Discapacidad 2010-2020, y por otro lado un aplicación móvil para dar soporte a ciudadanos con discapacidad en el uso de transporte público y privado.
PROGRAMME CIP-ICT-PSP-2013-7
DURATION 36 months. From 01/01/2014 to 31/12/2016
TOTAL COST  EUR 3.983.998
ABSTRACT SIMON is a demonstration project with three large scale pilots in Madrid, Parma and Lisbon aiming to use ICT services to promote the independent living and societal participation of mobility impaired people in the context of public parking areas and multiple transport modes. The project will tackle two main challenges: - Reduction of fraud in the pre-ICT implementation of the European Disable Badge for public parking areas. - Proposal of specific multimodal navigation solutions for elderly and people with disabilities. In the first topic SIMON will demonstrate the use of an ICT-enhanced European Disable Badge, both on the basis of physical –i.e. smartcards - and virtual access right tokens –i.e. e-access through mobile devices. In the second topic, the starting point for the proposal of an urban navigation system will be the use of opendata hubs and pre-existing toolsets that will be populated and exploited with specific information to address the requirements and needs of people with reduced mobility – i.e. location of elevators in sub-way stations. Both cases will require extensive integration of multiple databases with dedicated personal information. Thus, an additional challenge the project will have to assume is the instantiation of a proven methodology for data privacy preservation.
