After presenting the service required by SMS which helped, among other things, people with vision problems, Vodafone today announced its new service Easy Walk, who does the same with the people with visual disabilities.
Easy Walk It is a navigation system based on the GPS system and the Symbian mobile phone technology that offers basically two things: information on the current situation and instructions to follow a route, and on the other hand obtain assistance and information.
More related to navigation, the system offers detailed information on the actions that should be performed when we are following a path, such as turns, offsets, distance to a certain bridge, information of name of street and number, crossings and points of interest.
All these instructions and displayed on the screen are transformed into vocal expressions by using a TTS system (Text To Speech).
With the signal of GPS users can also
- Transmit real-time information on its geographical position at the center of attention or others (family, friends, etc)
- Generate custom routes that are available off line to find out how to get from point A to point B
- Useful tips on how to get to the desired destination
- Save any place or point of interest as a favorite
- Get help anywhere through the call center
- Be located wherever you need it
The use of the system is simple: we introduce a point of departure to and other arrival B e Easy Walk It will automatically generate the instructions to get to the desired destination. You can choose the type of route: on foot, road, motorway…
More thought for people who we must control at any moment, the user can also send an alarm throughout the system and an operator will assist you and will have information to view a map of the area where the user is located and keep track of your GPS position, guide the user step by step to the desired destination, send the appropriate emergency service to the actual position of the user , that is being constantly monitored by the application or call other phone numbers to convey the request for assistance from the user with your current position on the map.
