CASA PhD Student Panos Mavros features on Sky News

8 April 2014


CASA PhD student Panos Mavros is interviewed on this month's Sky News Technology News And Features bulletin ‘SWIPE’. CASA is working with the Future Cities Catapult, the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and Microsoft as part of the Family Day Out Programme, an initiative to explore and develop new strategies and technologies to make our cities better and more inclusive.

The project explores the experience of cities by blind and partially sighted people, to understand how the urban environment facilitates or impedes an independent and satisfying sense of mobility. We are using novel biosensing methods to look into the subjective experience of people and how it relates with their everyday behaviour, location and the quality of the urban infrastructure around them.
