RightHear is an advanced accessibility solution that allows its users to hear where they are, what’s there, and what’s around them simply by pointing their smartphone in different directions.
The RightHear solution has 3 main components:
Accessibility Spot (AS)
Every AS contains a tiny, smart, self-powered sensor that uses Bluetooth technology to detect whenever a user is nearby.
It can be easily installed anywhere, indoor and outdoor. Accessible Spots can typically be found near entrances, restrooms, elevators, stairs or any other point of interest in the venues.
Mobile App – Key Features
Download for free on iOS and Android.
- CURRENT LOCATION – Helpful, relevant information about the AS location: opening hours, services, nearby obstacles, venue description, special events etc.
- 360° ORIENTATION – Information about the surroundings of the user’s current location and about points of interest nearby with clear details about their direction and distance.
- LIVE ASSISTANT – A local assistance representative that users can call for further information about the venues and also for providing them physical guidance.
- NEARBY ZONES – List of all Accessibility Zones (AZ) nearby the user (sorted by distance). It also allows the user to navigate to an AZ using 3rd party application (i.e. Google Maps). When approaching the AZ’s entrance, user will start receiving accessibility information.
A content management platform (CMS) which allows the venue’s owner to manage the fleet of Accessibility Spots and easily edit the accessibility information in real-time. The content will be immediately updated and available on the AS. Dashboard is available at right-hear.com in the menu under “login”.
