What if vision impaired people could navigate independently using their smartphones? Wayfindr is the first open standard for audio-based navigation, stemming from a productive collaboration between ustwo (a global digital product studio) and the RLSB Youth Forum. To tackle the challenge of independent travel for vision impaired people, Wayfindr is setting the standard for audio navigation using your smartphone.
We are working so that wherever you are in the world, indoors or outdoors, you can navigate independently. The latest trial guides participants through Euston Tube station, giving audio directions from a prototype smartphone app that interacts with beacons installed throughout the station.
