Abstract

This article presents WAI-Routes, a system whose main goal is to calculate the best route between two coordinates in space using the public transport network of the Comunidad de Madrid regional area, taking into account the user’s profile. WAI-Routes has been designed bearing in mind mentally disabled users; routes are calculated with the particularities of the members of this group in mind.
