Using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, Wayfindr lets people know where they are on the network by communicating with a smartphone application, which provides audio instructions.

Wayfindr is a large project that has spanned many years and continues to evolve. Following a user-centric study at Pimlico Station and a larger scale trial at Euston, we are currently investigating how to make Wayfindr into a scalable product. For more information about the process and where we are now, contact us at the address below.

Partner organisations and funders 

To create Wayfindr, we worked with the Royal London Society for the Blind (RLSB) and product design studio ustwo. The idea came from the RLSB youth forums manifesto, which documented the need for safe, independent travel for visually impaired people.
