The Guide Dots is an audio-based application designed to help visually impaired to navigate independently.

With the ability to tag route details and find nearby friends, Guide Dots is a walking guide to any city in the world. With a growing Guide Dots community, users can create detailed databases of localized information such as hazards in the walkway and the location of a restroom in a store. Information continues to grow with the community, creating a completely crowd-sourced map of the world.
