HADRIAN is a computer-based inclusive design tool developed initially through the EPSRC ‘EQUAL’ (Extending Quality of Life) initiative to support the design of kitchen and shopping based tasks. The tool is currently being expanded through the EPSRC Sustainable Urban Environments programme to include data on an individual’s ability to undertake a variety of transport-related tasks, such as vehicle ingress/egress, coping with uneven surfaces, steps, street furniture and complex pedestrian environments. A feature of the enhanced HADRIAN tool will be a journey planner that compares an individual’s physical, cognitive and emotional abilities with the demands that will placed upon that individual depending on the mode(s) of transport available and the route options.
