NaviBlind

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.

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.
