Wayfindr is a prototype of an app -Bluetooth operated- intended for blind and low vision people that want to travel the London Tube. The navigation is possible because of the beacon technology and Bluetooth that gives audible directions and traces the user location in the subway. A prototype has been recently trialed at Pimlico station, where sixteen beacons have been installed.
Uses bone conduction headphones that rest on the blind person’s cheeks, and provides turn-by-turn directions on where to go and on the obstacles to avoid, each time a beacon’s signal is picked up by the smartphone.
