Partner is an open route planner of the University of Heidelberg for people with mobility impairments. It uses free data of OpenStreetMap. In contrast to regular route planners, additional attributes of paths, such as surface condition, steepness or high curbsides, can be taken into consideration. Everyone can enter this data into OpenStreetMap and therefore improve the wheelchair-accessible route planning. Thereby the navigation to searched-for (hopefully wheelchair-accessible) places shall be supported.
