A long-standing challenge in accessibility has been providing people with visual impairments equal access to indoor spaces. Without access to visual information, it can be difficult to know what is around, where items of interest are, and how to travel to where you want to go. Many solutions for indoor accessibility rely on accurate localization. The most accurate localization approaches rely on augmenting the environment with Bluetooth beacons; however, beacon installation requires expertise. We are building a Facebook chatbot, LuzDeploy, that coordinates the installation of beacons by non-expert volunteers who want to help via a Facebook chatbot.
