plan.b is a digital street map for blind people
providing them, in a matter of seconds, with a
tactile representation of their direct surroundings.
Users feel over the surface of the device to bring
up information on their surrounded area and can
access additional audio information by pressing
the displayed structures.
With plan.b blind people can explore their
surroundings and get information on proportions
of architecture and distances. The map thus
enables its user to move independently, freely
and safely - even in unfamiliar environs.
