In 2015, ustwo Sydney, Wayfindr, and Sydney Trains partnered to trial audio navigation – for people with a vision impairment – at Sydney’s Town Hall Station. The resulting insights fed into the working draft of the Wayfindr Open Standard – released in May 2016.

 

You can watch a short video about the trial below.

 

The Wayfindr Open Standard aims to empower people with a vision impairment to navigate independently, using their smartphones.

 

We want to see audio wayfinding solutions implemented across the world, in transport networks, shopping centres, and hospitals. 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.
