App-based guide for people with a visual impairment
Digital technologies offer a highly efficient way to make it much easier for blind and visually impaired road users to find their way around. LOC.id is based on Bluetooth and is ideal for use in traffic light systems or for passenger information on local public transportation.
The system is an app for blind and visually impaired people that functions like a transmitter. It’s also available as a hand-held device. When the user approaches a traffic light system that is equipped with a receiver, they are detected and an amplified orientation signal is emitted. LOC.id can also be used to extend the green light period.

ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg
The ITS World Congress is held every three years. As most other trade fairs in 2021 have already been canceled, this meeting point for the industry has become even more important than usual. And all the more so for Germany and its European neighbors because, this year, the ITS World Congress is due to be held in Hamburg from 11 to 15 October. The event will focus on intelligent traffic systems, including automated and connected driving, modern infrastructure, and sustainable mobility.
