Tik-Tik kick-off: Inclusive Indoor Navigation by Simon Dogger

To take a train to Amsterdam, visit a friend at the hospital, go to a museum or fly to London: it may sound easy but not for people who cannot see. Wayfinding in public buildings is mostly visual, which makes these facilities quite inaccessible for the visually impaired. With the Tik-Tik indoor navigation app Simon Dogger and his team offer a self-empowering solution. Based on pre-scanned building maps and customized software, the app facilitates independent access to public spaces. Tik-Tik turns phones into divining rods to help emancipate the 317,000 blind and partially sighted in the Netherlands.
