What is XPak?
XPak is a
Decision Support System (DSS)

XPak is a
Software as a Solution

(SaaS)
using
Geo-Spatial Data Base
of physical infrastructures and
Accessibility Indicators
to determine
Level of Accessibility

(LoA)

Xpak is
#Tech4Gov
Decision Support System
Xpak is a DSS that utilizes
Human Interaction
and
Telecommunication Networks
to Update, Query, and Maintain
a Data Base
of all
publicly accessible physical infrastructures
in a certain area (Pakistan/KP/Peshawar/Hayatabad)
What's the
issue
here?
How does it work? How does XPak deliver?
XPak combines Intuitive User Input / Querying with Telecommunications Network to provide a DSS for Policy Makers and End Users alike - i.e. for Anyone and Everyone
Analyzing Stakeholders
XPak Professionals
Individuals

What is Accessibility?
Defining 'Accessible':
providing access
capable of being reached
<accessible by rail>
being within reach
<fashions at accessible prices>
easy to communicate or deal with
<accessible people>
capable of being influenced : open
<accessible to new ideas>
capable of being used or seen : available
<the collection is not currently accessible>
capable of being understood or appreciated
<the author's most accessible stories> <an accessible film>
Accessibility
refers to the
design
of products, devices, services, or environments for
people with disabilities
.
An estimated
1 Billion
people, or
15% of the world’s population
, are living with disabilities. (Source: The Economist Intelligence Unit Limited 2014)
Disability, Accessibility, and us
Weak legal framework
for protecting the rights of persons with disabilities
A single law
, the
Disabled Persons Ordinance 1981
:
employers
with 100 workers or more must ensure that
at least 2%
of their total workforce consists of persons with disabilities,
or pay a levy
.
Weak monitoring and implementation
of this law
Many large, private companies and public agencies are
not meeting this requirement
Lack of Parliamentary Representation
UNCRPD Ratification
User Input OR Request for Information (Query)
GPS Coordinates, OR
XPin (A unique identifier), OR
XCall to XPak Hot-line
Interface
A Graphical User Interface
Android OR
Smartphone OR
Personal Computer / Mac OR
Any Internet/Web Browser
OR a simple SMS / Voice capable cellular phone
OR a Land line
Channel / Medium
Internet / World Wide Web
Cellular Networks
SMS
2G/3G/4G
XCall
Landlines
Accessible Data Base
XDB
Database Containing List of Publicly Accessible Infrastructures each with Indicators of Accessibility
Each Infrastructure is uniquely identifiable - XPin
Query Processing
by XPak
Query / User Input is processed by
Algorithms involving geo-coding
DB Mgt Software (DBMS)
User moderation (in case of XCall)
Feedback from XPak
User receives Feedback based on the Level of Accessibility (LoA) of the requested XPin / Coordinates e.g.
Directly Accessible
Indirectly Accessible
Etc.
