BindiMaps, cofounded by Dr. Anna Wright and Mladen Jovanovic, is an Australian tech startup that helps the visually impaired navigate unfamiliar or complex indoor spaces with a navigational mobile app. The app works by utilizing a network of Bluetooth beacons, a mapping and route-guidance system and smartphone sensors to describe where users are, what is around them and the best way to get to their destination through audio cues.
BindiMaps locates users precisely in indoor spaces by using a simple, natural language audio system to describe where users are and what’s around them, and the best way to get to their chosen destination. Their mission is to make every space 100% accessible, changing the lives of people with a disability and to make unfamiliar spaces more efficient for everyone to navigate.
Since launching in 2017, BindiMaps is functional across Australia and has assisted more than 1,600 people to safely reach more than 2,000 destinations.
