We want to empower vision impaired people to navigate the world independently
The Wayfindr Open Standard aims to do just that. So far we have released the first Working Draft of the Open Standard, following successful trials in London and Sydney. We are now working to mature and develop the Open Standard further.Explore the Open Standard
Emerging indoor navigation technologies hold the key to a revolution in independent navigation for blind and partially sighted people. In order to achieve the greatest impact globally, we need to develop a consistent standard across wayfinding systems.
This will truly open up a world where vision impaired people are no longer held back by their sight loss, removing barriers to employment, to meeting friends and family and engaging in their community.
The Wayfindr Open Standard aims to do just that.
What people say
We’re always striving to find new and innovative ways to help give more people the confidence to travel on our transport network. The Wayfindr project is a great example of our wider work to improve accessibility in London.- Boris Johnson MP, Former Mayor of London
We want to see audio wayfinding solutions implemented across the world, in transport networks, shopping centres, hospitals and other places. We can’t do this alone. Through the Wayfindr Community, we are uniting venue owners, digital navigation services, experts in vision impairment and other interested parties.
