Pedestrian Navigation in Stockholm -- How Local Data Together with Advanced Positioning Techniques can be Used for Detailed Routing

The City of Stockholm is part of the Swedish e-Adept project, which has produced a mobility enabling solution to increase accessibility for visually impaired. The technique is based on an open common local road database that allows exchange of information between all supplier types in an entire municipality. The objective of this paper is to describe how a pedestrian network in combination with local data and accurate real-time position data, can be used to provide high precision navigation for a visually challenged pedestrian through an urban environment. Additionally, it presents revenues and benefits from the e-Adept investment.
