"I inform about the next stopping point, the distance from the shopping centre or about temporary road blocks."
The FABEMA® BLINA is the mobile information and navigation system for the visually impaired and blind which acoustically shows visually impaired and blind people the safe route to the next pedestrian crossing or the next amenity.
The “LOC.id” smartphone app or the “LOC.id” hand-held transmitter uses Bluetooth to search for applications that respond when approached. On the one hand, the volume of the location signal is increased when the visually impaired person approaches from a distance and, on the other, the previously configured free text is played back when the person is in close range.
The programme navigates to the destination or provides information about the location found (e.g. bus stop, the hairdresser in the city centre, the shopping centre, the city-rail station, etc.).
The new standard of mobility.On construction sites in particular, it is necessary to use technologies that provide information and acoustic guidance in order to reduce the risk of accidents for visually impaired and blind people. The orientation sound and the voice output are located in a speaker unit that adapts to ambient noise.
Thanks to the adaptation FABEMA® BLINA is not perceived as an excessive nuisance at night. The “LOC.id” app is programmed to work in the background after it has been started and is therefore not a drain on the battery and memory. To use it you don’t have to hold the smartphone in your hand or actively monitor it.
Manual operation for orientation is of course also possible: The request button with braille script guarantees an LOC.id-independent function. FABEMA® BLINA is powered by batteries and can therefore be used and transported flexibly.
