Dot Go

client: Dot Incorporation
partner: Serviceplan Group

_problem

As a blind or visually impaired person it’s challenging
to lead an active, independent life. Existing camera- based assistive solutions are closed systems limited to proprietary data, leading to fragmentation and high costs.

_idea

Dot Go allows you to experience the world around you in your own way. A free smartphone app based on a simple approach: Any object can be connected to any action.

_what we did

In close cooperation with the German advertising agency Serviceplan and the South Korean company Dot Inc., we delivered a full working prototype (MVP). We are continuously working on Dot Go to make it a fully usable application. Currently there are plans to incorporate the application into a pilot project in Chile.

tech

Dot Go uses the iPhone LiDAR sensor to measure the distance to objects. Additionally, allows integration of various object recognition models, which makes it more accurate and diverse.

Objects can be connected with internal and external actions, from sound and vibration to interacting with the web, other apps, and external devices.

accessible to everyone

With our open architecture and simple interface, anyone can create and share their own presets for the use case they’re facing. This accessible, crowd-sourced approach allows anyone – from individual users to businesses and organisations – to contribute and benefit.
