Description
Difficulties navigating airports and other complex public spaces present a barrier to blind/visually impaired individuals that can complicate or prevent them from doing many activities that would otherwise be routine. The increased dependence on others reduces feelings of autonomy, as well as subjecting them to a customer experience that at best can be described as inconsistent. Eliminating this barrier with our assistive technology independent airport navigation allows the blind/visually impaired to experience a greater degree of independence in carrying out routine tasks, while simultaneously improving efficiency of operations for airports.
