Abstract
In this session, MEDEO GROUP will present GUIDINO. This new technological solution promotes safe travel for the visually impaired, or not, in metro stations, terminals and buildings using a geolocation and guidance system (GPS). MEDEO GROUP has developed this technology to help any user to find his way and to move freely and safely inside and outside complex buildings. GUIDINO has two important components: a network based on different tags and a mobile application. The combination of both is a revolution in the field of accessibility. Since Fall 2014, the solution has been implemented in train stations, terminals, buildings and airports in Europe.
