The INDIMO project is nearing the end of its second year. It is time to put the first version of the Inclusive Digital Mobility Toolbox to the test. How can developers apply the principles of universal design to digital transport applications and services? What are the most appropriate icons to be used in a mobile app interface? How can we ensure that vulnerable users will not become victims of cybercrime? These are the questions that our pilot projects are trying to answer by letting software and service developers use the INDIMO tools to redesign mobile app interfaces, rethink food delivery services, improve the accessibility of smart delivery boxes and enhance the interaction of people with limited vision with traffic lights. This cannot be done by sitting behind a computer at an office, therefore our INDIMO pilot teams have been organizing co-design workshops with the local communities of practice working with developers and operators on hands-on improvements. The first part of INDIMO was about thinking and observing, while now we are in the phase of ‘doing’, i.e. directly interacting with the end users of the INDIMO toolbox. In this edition of the INDIMO Newsletter, we will present the challenges of this work. Are you interested to join the testing the INDIMO tools? Do not hesitate to get in touch with us and join our growing Co-creation Community!
