Sensible Innovations has been named a winner of METRO Magazine’s 2017 Innovative Solutions Award for the implementation of the AWARE app at Rosa Parks Hempstead Transit Center in New York.
Our CEO, Rasha Said, will collect the award alongside Nassau Inter-county Express’ (NICE) during BusCon in Indianapolis on Wednesday, September 13.
In May, Sensible Innovations installed iBeacons throughout the station that will, through the AWARE app, provide bus users information about bus bays, ticket machines, exits and restrooms.
Since launching the AWARE app at Glenwood High School in Chatham, Illinois, in 2015 we have placed iBeacons in five states in the US and in London, the UK. The more awareness we can raise about AWARE, and the opportunity it brings for the visually impaired to experience their surroundings and navigate public spaces in real time via voice instruction, the better.
