Awardee of the Day:

Waymap Orientation App, United Kingdom

Duration

Language
english


Waymap, a UK-based IT start-up, has developed a personal navigation app for the blind and visually impaired that provides location accuracy of one meter.

The app guides and assists people both indoors and outdoors, providing real-time orientation. It uses existing sensors on smartphones, that measure movement, direction and altitude to navigate using dead reckoning, a method of calculating current position.

Have a look at today's #CountdownToZero video for inspiration!

Waymap is one of 76 Awardees that will be recognized at #ZeroCon22 for their work in removing barriers. Go to zeroproject.org to find a full list of this year's Awardees!
