Wayfindr: Opening Up Indoor Beacon Data to Digital Navigation for Vision Impaired citizens

Team: Wayfindr

Wayfindr tested, developed and stimulated new digital navigation apps, which empowered vision impaired citizens to independently navigate London using their smartphone. Working with London Underground, they were able to make existing beacon data accessible to developers for creating new digital navigation apps for indoor environments. The experiment opened up unmapped public spaces, such as London Underground, shopping malls and hospitals.
