Travel safely and independently

Safety.

NaviBlind increases safety, as the app keeps the user within bounds of pedestrian areas, such as sidewalks and pedestrian crossings. We call it "the virtual guideline".

Freedom.

With NaviBlind, one can travel to as many places as one likes. For instance, NaviBlind can be used for a walk in the local park, for a visit at a friend's place, or for spontaneous events. In all cases, the user is guided safely to the door of the destination.
