Pre-trip Training System for Seniors and People with Disabilities using Annotated Panoramic Video

Hao Dong, Aura Ganz

Abstract

This paper presents a scalable and user-friendly pre-trip training system for seniors and people with disabilities using panoramic videos. The proposed system allows travel trainers to annotate the videos according to the user disability and requirements. Such annotations will be displayed to the users during the training process. After training with the system, seniors and people with disabilities will be more likely to choose fixed route services while traveling in complex subway systems and indoor transportation hubs. Therefore, the use of the proposed platform will result in significant savings of paratransit services.
