Travelling for all
Travelling is listed as the top difficulty for people with limitations, impairments or disabilities in their day-to-day
activities. This paper demonstrates the barriers people face then they are travelling and reviews the current approaches or projects that are trying to enhance travelling for people with special needs. After exposing the limitation of these approaches, such as the lack of universal standards and methodologies, various isolated data and barriers of data achievement, this paper demonstrates the advantages of a linked data approach, namely dramatic data growth, domain specified data integration and automatic linking and reasoning to other resources. Therefore, it proposes a possible solution to build an accessible travelling service application to benefit travelling for all people.

Abstract

Travelling is listed as the top difficulty for people with limitations, impairments or disabilities in their day-to-day
activities. This paper demonstrates the barriers people face then they are travelling and reviews the current approaches or projects that are trying to enhance travelling for people with special needs. After exposing the limitation of these approaches, such as the lack of universal standards and methodologies, various isolated data and barriers of data achievement, this paper demonstrates the advantages of a linked data approach, namely dramatic data growth, domain specified data integration and automatic linking and reasoning to other resources. Therefore, it proposes a possible solution to build an accessible travelling service application to benefit travelling for all people.
