Assisted Mobility for Older and Impaired Users (SIMON)

SIMON is a demonstration oriented project, with three large scale pilots in Madrid, Lisbon and Parma aiming at promoting the independent living and societal participation of mobility impaired people in the context of public parking areas and multiple transport modes, through the adoption of specific navigation information and access-rights management solutions.



SIMON will propose a mobile application to support impaired citizens in the use of public and private transport modes. This application will not only include specific information and navigation functionalities, but will also make use of e-payment and e-id mechanisms to propose coordinated tariff policies and reduce fraud.

In this same context, SIMON will enhance the European parking card for disabled people with contactless technologies and will integrate mobile solutions to support user unique identification in existing park meters whilst preserving privacy.
