Abstract

Access My Campus is a mobile phone application in development to make college campuses more accessible to students and visitors. Navigating a new college environment is a difficult task for anyone who has not fully explored it. This task is even harder for students and visitors with disabilities, such as visual impairments. Access My Campus seeks to help these students by tracking their position through Wi-Fi triangulation and providing information about classrooms, offices, and other notable landmarks within proximity. Students will also be able to plan routes and be actively guided to their destination.
