“Investigate what it would be like for a young vision impaired person,
to travel London’s transport network in the near future.”

In this lightning talk, Umesh Pandya will share the story behind Wayfindr and how ustwo and the Royal London Society for Blind People designed and validated a system that helps vision impaired people move through the London Underground Network independently. Umesh will talk about the tools, techniques, methodologies they used over the course of this investigation – from concept through to a live pilot over the span of 6 months.
