D-PBL students win an entrepreneurial competition in Portugal

We are thrilled to announce that our amazing team has won an award at Mostra Nacional de Jovens Empreendedores 2024!

The DPBL project, 4Wheels, is an innovative app designed to enhance the travel experience for people with limited mobility by providing real-time information about accessibility options in train and metro stations.

With 4Wheels, no journey will be ruined by a broken elevator again. The app works similarly to Waze, using user reports to inform others about the status of accessibility features in stations. It also displays whether a station has certain features and is accessible or not, ensuring a smoother and more reliable travel experience for everyone.

But that’s not all! They´ve paired the app with a smart bracelet with fall detection sensors and a help request button. This ensures that people can receive help quickly, travel more confidently, and have no fear.

The team comprises 7 international members who have put in countless hours of hard work and dedication. We are incredibly proud of what they have achieved and are excited to see the positive impact it will have on the community.
