            We live in the information age, where many tasks are automated and many jobs are performed by machines. There has been a certain amount of fear about the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing and its impact on traditional careers, but these developments are good news for people with disabilities. Elderly people who have lost some of their cognitive capabilities, and those who have life-long intellectual disabilities (ID) can avail of AI to become more independent and enjoy the same conveniences as the rest of society. Of course, this relies on making such systems accessible for this vulnerable group of users. Existing research has considered aids for activities of daily living including wayfinding for helping with commuting for ID service users. This work seeks to produce an assistive technology that supports people with intellectual impairment in the preparations for leaving an indoor space so that they may do so independently with only minimum interventions from the family or the caregiver.
