TacMap exhibition at Naidex National, NEC – 29 April 2014
TacMap is a research and development project with an aim of a navigation system for the blind that provides a tactile and visual language that can be understood by both sighted and blind users. The innovative navigation and information system aims to make organisations inclusive, accessible and safe for blind, partially sighted and sighted people. Working together, a unique dual way-finding solution can improve organisations’ health and safety performance and customers’ experience, welcoming and reaching more visitors.
TacMap will be exhibiting at Naidex National at the Birmingham NEC on 29 April and 01 May 2014.
Naidex National is the home of the UK independent living market. It is the largest UK exhibition and conference of its kind, showcasing a comprehensive range of products and services that enable people to live more independently.
