Introducing NaviLens, an innovative technology that uses your smartphone to make spaces more accessible
This is Borja from NaviLens, an innovative technology that makes spaces more accessible for the visually-impaired community and that is facing great success as it is currently expanding. I would like to tell you a bit about the concept and how this works.
As I was telling you, Navilens is a new system of smart digital markers that make spaces more accesible.
These markers are colored codes similar to the QR codes but with technical characteristics that allow their reading in conditions that no other code has.
NaviLens helps users to obtain useful information (for instance, lines that pass by the bus stop, next departures, description of the stop, incidences in the service, etc.) in the format and language adapted to the user's profile, helping to improve the accessibility of any space as well as the user experience.
Do you want to check that through a video of our implementation in Barcelona public transport system?

Also, here are some testimonials of our users:

There is also a domestic version of the NaviLens technology for you to tag daily elements, detect and read them inside your houses.
Would you like to hear more about this domestic version?
The only problem is I imagine a lot of us aren't going to be able to understand it as it is not in English. do you have a demonstration video in English?
Thanks so much.
I heard about this first on the Eyes on Success podcast. It sounds like a great idea and solves a few problems. I hope it is widely adopted and becomes more useful.
Just saw the videos, and it is totally interesting! what apps will work with this technology? and is it available for use now?
NaviLens App is already available for iOS and Android. You can download them in App store for free as soon as you want. And in your language, of course!
Great! will it work in all countries? I'm currently in Puerto Rico, but planning to move to New York next year. also, will it work in doors as well? just wondering.
Yes, it does work everywhere. Internationally and both indoors and outdoors. You can already start by using the blank tags at home!
