Allison interviews Mike May from GoodMaps about their service that provides navigation aids for people with vision impairments. GoodMaps apps help the user, such as a person who is blind or with low vision or a first responder, easily navigate their way within a building. GoodMaps requires no infrastructure or Bluetooth beacons to be installed within the building. Instead, GoodMaps scans the building’s internals with LiDAR and, using image recognition, provides a fast and accurate map of its indoor spaces. GoodMaps positioning technology is accurate to within a few feet. This accuracy allows the user to “look around” to understand what they are passing as they walk down an aisle or hallway or to navigate to a destination with turn-by-turn directions. GoodMaps mobile apps are available on iOS and Android and are free to the user. The setting is the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference show floor at the Marriott in Anaheim, CA.
