Common navigation solutions treat pedestrians like slow cars: in the middle of the road, or across intersections. Walkways, pedestrian areas, parks, etc. are not considered. This may be annoying for people with normal sight, but for blind people it is simply life-threatening.
Routago is the solution to this problem: a mobility platform that maps various aspects of pedestrian mobility. Routago Assist is the first application based on this technology that offers real pedestrian navigation and which is optimized for blind and visually impaired people.
The most important component is pedestrian navigation. Routago knows about sidewalks, sidewalks, intersections, pedestrian crossings, parks, pedestrian areas, underpasses, etc. for navigation worldwide. In addition, the results are constantly being improved by machine learning.
This is supplemented by route recording, environment information, object and obstacle detection in real time and the user-friendly preparation of information in the form of speech, sonification, vibration, etc.
