explorably is a platform to empower users to explore their environment in a safe and convenient way. Its main purpose is to enable individuals with differing levels of phyisical ability to navigate their surroundings by providing optimized routes according to their needs. For example, if a user is going to travel using a wheelchair, the system will not suggest a route that traverses steep climbs or uneven terrain.
The system relies heavily on the contribution of the users to properly map the environment by sending in reports on the condition of the roads and sidewalks. This allows explorably to learn about the actual conditions on the ground to provide better routes.
In addition, the app integrates with wearable technology to avoid any doubt when exploring new routes and areas. The user knows at all times where they are and where to take turns, wait for public transportation or get off it.
