Intel, GoodMaps Work on Safe Indoor Navigation

Benefiting from the Intel RISE Technology Initiative, GoodMaps helps the blind and visually impaired find their way indoors.




​As part of the Intel RISE Technology Initiative (IRTI), Intel is collaborating with GoodMaps to deliver a high-quality indoor wayfinding solution for people who are blind or visually impaired. Safely and effectively navigating indoor spaces results in greater independence and confidence when traveling. In this video, students at Portland State University share their experiences with the technology and how it has changed their lives for the better.

Intel continues to investigate volumetric mapping algorithms and advances in artificial intelligence to improve the precision and accuracy of GoodMaps’ commercial indoor wayfinding service. The IRTI reviews and funds projects related to health care, education and the economy with new, dedicated workstreams for social equity and human rights, accessibility and climate action.
