Would you like to walk here?

  • In the middle of the street?

  • Across a multi-lane road?

  • Without traffic lights?

  • Between the cars?

And now assume you are blind or mobility impaired…

Walk the safe route: Routago®!

Safe crosswalks

Routago uses traffic lights for pedestrians or zebra-crossings instead of accident-prone free street crossing.

Sidewalks along the roads

Routago considers road side aware sidewalks instead of a routing in the middle of the the street.

Suitable routes for humans

Routago guides on specific paths for pedestrians, under- and overpasses and through pedestrian zones instead of among the cars on the road.

What is special about pedestrian routing?

Pedestrian navigation has much stronger requirements on suitability, precision and accuracy than current navigation solutions can provide.

This is even more true for vulnerable person groups with visually impairment, physical handicap or which are less traffic-safe in general.

And that means in practice:

Move bar <->Routago

Use pedestrian specific footpaths

Cross streets using pedestrian safe crossings

Utilize road side aware sidewalks

Walk truly from door to door and not from and to the nearest road curb

The Routago® Solution

  • Routago finds secure pedestrian routes in city-centers and in the country-side

  • Routago is the only available solution with worldwide coverage

  • Routago introduces an innovative road-side aware routing technology

  • Routago completes the required geo data with algorithmic extension if the coverage is not sufficient

  • Routago provides accurate guidance by sub-meter GNSS

  • Routago delivers speech and vibration instructions on smartphones and smartwatches

Research and Innovation

Routago technology research was partially funded by the German government within the research project “TERRAIN“.

Use Cases

Use case specific profiles enable different types of pedestrian navigation for various purposes:

  • Standard pedestrian routing

  • Routing for visually impaired or blind users

  • Routing for wheelchair users

  • Safety ensured routing for vulnerable traffic participants e.g. children on their way to school

Usage can be extended far beyond pedestrian needs like precise routing for autonomous vehicles used e.g. for logistics

Integration of additional data sources can enable further fields of application, like e.g. crime area aware navigation
