People with autism have idiosyncratic sensory experiences, which may impact on how they live the “spaces” of their everyday life. Starting from an investigation of their conception and experience of “secure places,” we defined a series of user requirements for designing technology that supports their everyday movements in the urban environment. On the basis of such requirements, we developed an interactive system that leverages crowdsourcing mechanisms to map places that are perceived as secure by the population with autism.

Abstract

People with autism have idiosyncratic sensory experiences, which may impact on how they live the “spaces” of their everyday life. Starting from an investigation of their conception and experience of “secure places,” we defined a series of user requirements for designing technology that supports their everyday movements in the urban environment. On the basis of such requirements, we developed an interactive system that leverages crowdsourcing mechanisms to map places that are perceived as secure by the population with autism.
