Okeenea is the specialist in guidance and pedestrian signal developing technological solutions to meet the mobility needs of people with disabilities.
We accompanied Okeenea when the New York City Department of Transportation launched a call for innovation to secure pedestrian crosswalks for blind and visually impaired people.
This new connected pedestrian signal will be installed in March 2019 at a crossroads of the Big Apple, a first step towards the creation of tomorrow’s intelligent pedestrian crosswalk!
Okeenea has devised a connected infrastructure with a dual purpose: to make blind people walk safely but also to provide geolocated solutions for all citizens. It is a network of selective dissemination of information with the objective to give the right information, at the right time, in the right place!
