Helps blind people walk to any destination with ease
How it works
NaviBlind allows blind or visually impaired users to walk to new destinations on their own, without prior instructions. The app works by delivering navigation messages with better than one-meter accuracy.
Stay on the route, always.
NaviBlind's app will help you to:
Turn, exactly where the sidewalk turns,Stop, exactly where pedestrian crossing or other obstacles are,Adjust your heading towards the direction of the route.
The perfect route
All routes created by NaviBlind are designed to avoid obstacles such as road construction or newly build structures, so that the route may easily be navigated by blind and visually impaired people. The high quality of the routes is ensured by using updated satellite images of the very best resolution.
How to use the app
1. The user submits a request for a walking route from A to B
2. Within 24 hours the route request is processed and the route is shared with the user
3. The user may now select the route and get instructions on how to walk from A to B
To use the NaviBlind app, the user turns on the GPS accessory. The app connects to the GPS accessory, which ensures that navigation messages are delivered within one-meter of accuracy.
Using the GPS accessory
The GPS accessory is worn in a hat while in use, so that it may be hidden while producing robust location data.
The app library
