HADRIAN: supporting design for all

HADRIAN is a software tool developed to support designers in their efforts to ‘design for all’. Current research is expanding the tool to transport related tasks. This includes supporting investigations of the whole journey environment. This development is moving towards a journey planner that allows each stage of a journey to be assessed against an individual’s physical, cognitive and emotional abilities. This journey planner will then support both individuals wishing to make a journey, and also designers and planners wishing to investigate the inclusiveness of a new design. Much of the data collection has been completed and a concept for the journey planner is outlined. The development of this work also poses a number of significant challenges which are discussed.
