New York City and Barcelona have joined forces to launch a joint call for innovative solutions, challenging YOU, the global technology community, to improve safety at intersections for blind and low-vision pedestrians.
Whether it’s a smartphone application, a wearable device, or another technology solution that can help citizens with vision loss; if you can think of creative, innovative ways to leverage personal devices, location-aware technologies, and data sources ranging from NYC Open Data and Barcelona Open Data to signal timings, then this challenge will be right up your alley.
Interested? APPLY NOW and submit your applications before November 2, 2017 to get involved and to work towards ‘a city for all’. This could be a great opportunity for you to gain visibility and to show the strength of your projects, as well as FIWARE tech, when applied to mobility, accessibility and inclusion in Smart Cities. Winners will be eligible for funding from the selecting city to pilot their solution.
