Access Maps

Interaction Design, Motion Design
Access Maps is a speculative augmented reality travel application to give travel independence to people who have any from of mobility impairment. It's a "Google Maps" for accessibility.

After researching the everyday challenges of traveling locally for people with wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, etc. especially in cities, I explored how an AR application and interface could be used to help guide local travel and create awareness of the inaccessibility and obstacles faced during travel every day.

Motion Interface

I used motion to prototype an example interaction that could be encountered while traveling day to day. Simple notifications and updates are used to alert the user and offer solutions. And a simple motion system of sliding and revealing creates familiarity for the user.
