A Mobile App to Provide Autonomous Navigation for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Boni Global developed a mobile application for Ece Turkey using Wi-Fi based navigation and positioning technologies to help visually impaired people find their way in complex venues by themselves. Boni Global’s products for indoor mapping and navigation were used to first create digital maps of the malls, meanwhile Boni Global’s indoor navigation tool provides highly accurate and precise wayfinding for accessible shopping experiences, especially necessary for individuals with limited vision.

Leverage Access to a Larger Customer Base, Improved Brand Reputation and Boost in Customer Satisfaction

Initially the application provided voice guidance for the visually impaired, iconographic guidance was later added to cater to deaf or hard of hearing individuals as well. With this application, users can use the search option to find their point of interest, amenities and exits. With its wayfinding capabilities, the application produces a personalized route for each user that leads to their POI safely. By increasing the inclusivity of their venues, Ece Turkey was able to leverage access to a larger customer base, improve brand reputation and boost customer satisfaction.
