Barrier-Free Design assistant

WADA may be used as a barrier-free design assistant for architects. One possible scenario would be:

1. An architect develops a floor plan by the use of ADT (i.e., AutoDesk Architectural Desktop), and he wants to check if his design is indeed satisfied by accessible requirements for wheelchairs;

2. The architect applies the floor plan to WADA, along with a pair of designated locations where are expected  to be accessible, and WADAreports the results back to him within a short time;

3. Based on the results, the architect modifies his design until the corresponding requirements are satisfied, (when necessary, repeat 2).
