Intel and GoodMaps Collaborate to Improve Indoor Mapping Technology
GoodMaps and Intel bring LiDAR digital maps and navigation to indoor spaces
As part of the Intel RISE Technology Initiative (IRTI), GoodMaps is collaborating with Intel to deliver a high-quality indoor wayfinding solution for all, with special emphasis on improving indoor navigation for people including those who are blind or low vision, mobility impaired, and deaf or hard of hearing. With GoodMaps technology people can safely and effectively navigate indoor spaces resulting in greater independence when traveling.
Over the past few months, GoodMaps and Portland State University have worked together to implement the GoodMaps system in the Smith Student Union. The goal is to expand the accessibility of campus buildings and improve the student experience. Visually impaired students often receive only basic orientation and mobility upon arriving on campus. This is likely not to be repeated each semester when their class schedule and navigation changes. With the power of GoodMaps, PSU students who are blind or low vision, mobility impaired, or just new to campus, can easily and confidently navigate using the GoodMaps Explore app. Check out the Intel & GoodMaps video.
