The device developed by Beltmap could have an impact in improving life and, specifically, mobility of people with visual impairments, by constituting a highly innovative tool to facilitate their orientation in space in a simple and safe way. Beltmap's added value consist in its ability to be integrated with mobility services already in use - including Google Maps - and to make them completely available to visually impaired people through the vibration-based driving system, which allows the subject to perceive external noises and to identify any sources of danger, without distractions.
