Abstract

This paper outlines a co-creation process including used participatory design
methods for knowledge co-creation and lo-fidelity service prototyping, focusing on persons with reduced mobility and their use of public transport. The overall aim of the research was to co-create a design framework specifically aimed for developing IoT based accessible mobility solutions. Further, in this paper, we present a structure designed for participatory activities through an application of the framework. In practice, user research interviews and storytelling co-design
workshop activities as a use case allowed us to refine the framework further by
testing it in practice. Our initial results show that through an action oriented
participatory design research approach designers and developers of accessible
public transportation and mobility services are able to create comprehensive
understanding of the humans, their activities and contextual service solutions.
