Green light for UniMaps

Published on 1. October 2017

In summer 2017, students of the technical faculty have started developing an app on behalf of the 'Schwerbehindertenvertretung' (representative of the severely disabled) of Bielefeld University.

The app is planned to be used as a support for barrier-free campus navigation. The focus was on the apps accessibility for all people, with or without disability. Therefore, for example, the deselection of stairs was made possible. 

Overall twelve app designs have been developed within a contest. In the end there have been a winner and two runner ups. The prize money in the amount of 5000 euros for the three winner groups have been provided by the 'Schwerbehindertenvertretung' (representative of the severely disabled) and the 'Referat für Studierende mit Behinderung und chronischer Erkrankung' (RSB) (department for students with disability and chronic disease).
