National Lottery to fund development of Wayfindr

The Big Lottery Fund has made an award of £300,000 to Wayfindr, a partnership between the Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) and digital product company ustwo. It will be used in an innovation to help vision impaired people navigate indoor environments independently using audio navigation.

Wayfindr will be using National Lottery funding to help develop the Open Standard by trialling it in a range of contexts (transport, shopping centres, and hospitals) across the UK, with the aim of supporting two million blind people to navigate indoor environments independently. For more information, visit the Big Lottery Fund website.
