We are an award-winning startup organisation, with ambitions to help the global community of 285 million blind people navigate indoor environments independently.
Formed in 2015 and based in London, our mission is to empower vision impaired people to overcome isolation, by setting the standard for audio based navigation.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
The first time testing (Wayfindr) at Pimlico was like we were just ‘normal people’ - well - we are normal people but we were just able to travel on our own through a station, without another human being there to help us. I like to travel, so being able to travel through Euston station alone would be incredible.- Courtney Nugent
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.
