Abstract: Currently, the use of a navigation aid system has become more and more essential in daily life. However, the existing systems are not adapted to the navigation of people with reduced mobility (PRM) using a wheelchair. Many projects have been created, such as Wegoto in France or Route4U in Hungary. In Canada, the multidisciplinary project MobiliSIG was launched in 2013. This project aims to design and develop geospatial navigation technologies according to the principles of cognitive design to assist PRMs in their daily travel and access to the environment. The overall objective of this project is the design of a mobile route planning and guidance system during navigation, multimodal and adapted to the different profiles of wheelchair users with reduced mobility. To begin, we reviewed the literature related to the concepts of our problem. Then, we proposed a navigation aid approach that combines step-by-step guidance elements with information on landmarks and different relevant elements (points of interest, obstacles/facilitators, ...) for the description of a personalized path adapted to the profile of PRM. Finally, based on the principles of modular design and the concept of rich mobile applications (RMAs), we designed and developed a mobile solution composed of three modules: a profile module to manage the user's profile and preferences; a planning module to manage the adapted route planning; and a navigation module to provide multimodal guidance (visual, voice and haptic) during navigation taking into account the user's profile.
