Blind Explorer

GEKO NAVSAT Blind Explorer is a sensory guidance system, which integrates binaural sounds (3D sounds) and advanced satellite navigation technologies, allowing blind or visually impaired people to move along an unknown trail in an independent and safe way (mobile coverage not necessary). Blind Explorer is based on an accessible app which turns the selected route into a 3D sound sequence so that users are able to orientate themselves correctly without having to use their vision or hold the mobile in their hands. The use of bone conduction headphones and a high-precision positioning device complete the mobile application. Spain
