Digital Wayfinding Kiosks

The DDP team, along with its vendor IKE Smart City is traveling to each City Council District to share how the interactive kiosks work and how they will bring not only momentum to city neighborhoods but provide a much-needed system to connect the community to important information. Kiosk functions include real-time transit feeds, a local business directory, an emergency calling system, available job postings, opinion polls, and games.

Main Goals for the Digital Wayfinding Kiosks

  • Increase pedestrian wayfinding for people unfamiliar with the area and give people a sense of place and place literacy.
  • Encourage and promote a “park-once” trip to Downtown Detroit by communicating distances between Detroit neighborhoods and destinations
  • Enhance the streetscape in Downtown Detroit with well-designed and informative signage
  • Promote and enhance access to Detroit businesses and public spaces
