Users of eZwayZ can easily locate and navigate themself within an unfamiliar building. The app does not use GPS, but works with visual positioning using the smartphone's camera and sensors. The application guides users from the starting point to their desired destination with clear instructions. In order to use eZwayZ, the building and its surroundings must be digitally mapped beforehand using a unique mobile 3D scanner.
The app is currently available as a test version for use on an iPhone 8 or higher that is only available for download through TestFlight (Apple's test environment). Interested in testing the application? You can co-test by signing up through our mail
The app is now available at a limited number of locations such as Arnhem Station, Atrium Bartimeus in Zeist, NEMO Science Museum and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
The app needs an active Internet connection to determine the user's position and orientation.
We are developing eZwayZ initially for iOS because virtually all visually impaired people now have an iOS smartphone because of the accessible VoiceOver. Once the first iOS version is ready, we plan to develop an Android version based on it so that the app can be used more widely.
