Many existing navigation systems facilitate pedestrian routing but lack the provision of personalised route alternatives tailored to individual needs. Previous research suggests that pedestrians often prioritise factors such as safety or accessibility over the shortest possible route. This paper investigates ways to enhance existing pedestrian navigation systems and improve walking experiences by providing personalised routes based on walking preferences. This is achieved by defining a set of routing preferences and implementing a modified version of Dijkstra’s algorithm. The goal of this work is to promote walking by enhancing mobility, accessibility, comfort, and safety.
