Hello and thank you for your interest. RPN is closing the gap in accessible information and navigation for those of us with visual impairment.
We can’t do this alone and would appreciate it if you could visit our #HolmanPrize video and give us a like and a share for a chance at $25000.

The Problem

In 1990 when the Americans with Disabilities Act was created no one expected mobile devices to act as hubs of information or personal guides. High tech was a braille sign next to a door which now a days is fairly useless when we can walk down a hallway and have information beamed directly onto our phones.

Solution

Using every day sensors found on mobile devices and accurate maps verified by us our users can travel with confidence Inside or outside doesn’t matter, we’re even making hiking trails accessible!
