5c. Best Use of Mobile for Accessibility & Inclusion

Jointly developed by SK Telecom and CO:ACTUS, Driving Assistance Solution for hearing-impaired taxi driver provides communication solutions and safety features. SK Telecom implemented specialized features for the drivers on ‘T map Taxi’ passenger and driver app. When passenger calls a taxi through this app and assigned with a taxi driven by hearing-impaired drivers, passenger gets a pop-up notice. SK Telecom also developed the world’s first ADAS for hearing-impaired drivers, sending warning signals with vibration through a smartwatch. CO:ACTUS developed an inside-taxi communication solution, GOYOHAN which enables formatted conversation and allows passenger to communicate through tablet touchpad, voice recognition and keyboard.
