We are revolutionising the way that we all navigate internal spaces. While BindiMaps adds a layer of convenience for most of us, it completely changes the way people with vision impairment access indoor spaces. BindiMaps removes significant barriers to navigation, and opens up a whole new world for discovery.
Our technology enables people with vision impairment to navigate with confidence and independence as they move through unfamiliar and complex indoor spaces. BindiMaps opens up a whole new world for exploration.
We empower people with vision impairment to navigate their world, so their limited vision no longer holds them back. BindiMaps helps remove barriers to mobility, which assists with employment, independence and engagement with the community.
People with vision impairment face safety risks every day in shopping centres, airports and other complex indoor spaces. Evacuation and emergency signage is visual, and they often need to rely on strangers for directions. Our technology takes the stranger out of the mix, and provides real-time information on hazard warnings and evacuation procedures.
How does it work?
BindiMaps is a mobile app that locates users precisely in indoor spaces. It employs a simple, natural-language audio system to describe where users are and what’s around them, and the best way to get to their chosen destination.
BindiMaps does this using a network of Bluetooth beacons, a sophisticated mapping and route-guidance system, and smartphone sensors.
