SeeLight is a global application that lets the blind and visually impaired to orient themselves in the city nearby traffic area. With the help of users, SeeLight will let such people “see” and hear crossing lights all around the world.
How does the application work? Thanks to open API access, any user or organization can fill data on city crossing lights anywhere in the world (tactile paving and audible signals equipment, time for road crossing), and they get tagged by gps tags on an interactive map.
For those who face road crossing by themselves as a big challenge, such information will become a great salvation. The app identifies direction and determines distance to the closest crossing light out and notifies about it in a background mode. Now everyone will be able to hear traffic lights, if not to see them.
SeeLight can become a guide to a safer, and therefore, more independent and comfortable life for blind and visually impaired people. Their welfare is a business of all of us, because everyone deserves equal human conditions in the society – particularly now, when it is possible to make the world better in just a couple of clicks. We have developed a unique platform – now gaps to fill are the only thing left. It is your turn to act!
