Episode Four | Making Maps More Accessible with XR Navigation – Part 2

Traditional navigation solutions just don't meet the needs of people with limited or no vision, but new innovations are making it easier for this community to access geographic information. Brandon Biggs, CEO of XR Navigation, joins us again for part two of our conversation about his company. XR Navigation is a startup in the 2023 Remarkable US Accelerator Program that is working to improve the accessibility of maps and other navigation solutions. Additionally, their products make it possible for blind users to access important information that’s often conveyed visually with map images, such as data on air quality, storm trajectories, and wildfire risk. This part of our interview focuses on the technology behind XR Navigation's products, how the products work, what makes them unique, and what Brandon envisions for the future of the company.
