New App Aims to Help the Visually Impaired at Airports | Travel Pulse

Chieko Asakawa, a professor at Carnegie Mellon, developed an app to help the visually impaired navigate airports using audio instructions. Being blind herself, Asakawa was inspired to create NavCog to make the airport process easier for people who can’t see. Users can find their way to shops and restaurants with GPS-like technology that describes surroundings. NavCog is already available to the public and works with Bluetooth beacons for effortless use.
