Research and development of the project began in 2014, when we gained financial support of the Alfa programme by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. Our team thus began to realize a project named „Extended data model for the disabled and the methodology of its interpretation in navigation“, shortly ROUTE4ALL.
The aim of the project was to develop an extended data model of a navigation map for disabled people and at the same time to create the methodology of its interpretation and implementation using web map services, which could be utilized for the creation of relevant navigation for our disabled fellow citizens. After three years of research and development we managed to achieve our goals and today we dispose of a prototype of the ROUTE4ALL platform.
Basic information on the R&D project
Name: Extended data model for the disabled and the methodology of its interpretation in navigation (ROUTE4ALL)
Programme: Alfa TA ČR
Solution time: 2014 – 2016
Research team: Central European Data Agency, a.s. and Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty od Transportation Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering
In order to achieve the best quality output for end users, we cooperate with other organizations. They help us define requirements on the navigation model and collaborate with us on testing of the data model in the field.
Czech Blind United, who provide us with consultations and methodological support on the needs of the visually impaired.
Life Without Barriers ngo Nová Paka provide us with consultations on the needs of wheelchair users and using electrical wheelchairs.
Konto bariéry is out important partner too.
We have managed to gain financial support for the project from other organizations. Support us too!
We are looking for partners who will help us gain bases for mapping, finance mapping and operation of the open cloud platform. We will appreciate cooperation with organizations aware of the needs of local citizens, local disabled communities and local authority representatives, who would like to support the operation of the platform in their city, town or region.

Within the ROUTE4ALL project, CEDA, which has operated in the digital map and service market for more than 15 years and processes navigation data of the Czech and Slovak Republics, is responsible for the data model and integration of map data into the platform and cloud service. Naviterier, s.r.o. under the patronage of CTU, are working on the development of specialized navigation applications, especially for people with visual impairment and wheelchair users, using the ROUTE4ALL platform. CTU is mainly responsible for research in the area of dealing with the needs of the disabled.
